A little more than a week ahead of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are handed out, the Creative Arts Emmy Awards have taken place, offering justified praise to outstanding work (mainly) behind the scenes. The Creative Emmys also include some categories that aren't featured during Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast, including Outstanding Animated Series, Outstanding Guest Actor/Actress and Outstanding Host for a Reality Show.

Casting awards went to Orange is the New Black, True Detective and Fargo, while the prison-set dramedy also won for Outstanding Guest Actress (to Uzo Aduba, who plays Crazy Eyes). Orange is the New Black can also boast that it managed to get the phrase "Tit Punch" onto the Emmy ballot, and the Season 1 episode won for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy.

Among the other guest star winners were Joe Morton for Scandal, Allison Janney for Masters of Sex and Jimmy Fallon for Saturday Night Live.

Why Best Animated Program isn't included during the Primetime Emmy Award celebration, I don't know. I wish it was. That complaint aside, big congratulations to Bob's Burgers for winning its first Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program. It was nominated twice before this year, and this is the first year it won.



Other highlights among the Creative Emmy winners include Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis winning Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program for the interview with President Barack Obama. And Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey winning for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.
