Tonight the Academy held the Creative Arts Emmys, which gave awards out in various technical categories. Game of Thrones walked away with six statues! This already tops their haul last year of two total wins, and the main ceremony is still to come, where Thrones is up for outstanding drama series and outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.
Tonight’s wins came in the following categories: outstanding makeup (non-prosthetic), outstanding costumes, outstanding art direction, outstanding visual effects, outstanding sound editing and outstanding sound mixing. This was easily the most awards won by one program.
An edited two-hour version of the Creative Arts ceremony will air on Sept. 22 at 8 PM ET on Reelz Channel. The main ceremony airs on Sept. 23 at 7 PM ET on ABC.
Winter Is Coming: Wow. Six Emmys! That is hugely impressive. Congrats to all the hardworking crew who were recognized tonight. You all deserve it. Time to clear off some shelf space at the Paint Hall!
