Emmy-trophy

The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards were held yesterday in Los Angeles and Game of Thrones dominated, winning in four categories.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards generally go down a week before the live Primetime Emmy Awards telecast and focuses mainly on technical and behind the scenes efforts. We expect HBO will take home even more hardware next week but for now, the network is off to a good start.

Thrones took home awards for:

1. Special and visual effects for episode “The Children”

Joe Bauer, Joern Grosshans, Steve Kullback, Adam Chazen, Eric Carney, Sabrina Gerhardt, Matthew Rouleau, Thomas H. Schelesny, and Robert Simon.

2. Art direction for a contemporary or fantasy series forThe Laws of Gods and Men/The Mountain and the Viper

Deborah Riley, Paul Ghirardani, and Rob Cameron.

3. Costumes for a series

Michele Clapton, Sheena Wichary, Alexander Fordham, and Nina Ayres.

4.  Prosthetic makeup for a series, miniseries, movie or special

Jane Walker and Barrie Gower.

HBO destroyed all of the other networks, taking home a total of 15 awards, four program and 11 individual.

    Well deserved indeed! They all do an amazing job. Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, and Diana Rigg will knock it out of the park. Pedro Pascal should have been in there too but I guess he’ll have to just settle with the love of the entire world. :)
