HBO came out on top at the 2010-2011 Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards last night. The Awards ceremony celebrates some much of the talent that goes on off screen on TV, along with awards like Outstanding Guest Actor, Outstanding Host for a Reality Program, and a few other on-screen awards that don’t fit into the regular Emmy’s ceremony.
HBO’s Boardwalk Empire was celebrated with seven Creative Arts Emmy’s last night, including one for Outstanding Visual Effects, and Outstanding Sound Editing. Boardwalk Empire wasn’t the only HBO series to win last night. Also among the pay-cable series winners was Game of Thrones, which took home a much deserved Emmy for Outstanding Main Title Design.
Showtime’s The Borgias won for Outstanding Costumes, and Outstanding Main Theme Music.
Justin Timberlake scored two awards, one of which was for Outstanding Guest Actor in a comedy series for his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. Timberlake was also among the winners for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for the song performed during his opening monologue.
The other Guest Actor awards went to Gwyneth Paltrow for Glee, Paul McCrane for Harry’s Law, Loretta Devine for Grey’s Anatomy. Meanwhile, Deadliest Catch took home the prize for Outstanding Reality Program. Jeff Probst won for Outstanding Host for Reality Program for Survivor. I would’ve preferred Cat Deeley won that prize, however this year, the nomination was the win for her. Meanwhile, So You Think You Can Dance did manage to score three awards, two of which were a tie against each other for Outstanding choreography. Mia Michaels won for routines: Alice In Mia-Land “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” / “When We Dance” / “This Bitter Earth – On the Nature of Daylight.” Napoleon and Tabitha (aka Nappytabs) tied Michael’s for the routines: “Scars” / “Fallin” / “Outta Your Mind.”
