Creative Arts Emmys: Ava DuVernay Amplifies ’13th’ Message

The show won three of its categories – Best Comedy Casting, Best Cinematography (Single-Camera, Half-Hour), and Best Production Design (Narrative, Half-Hour) – so it wasn’t the biggest victor of the weekend.

Some of the category winners were announced over the weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys, with “Saturday Night Live“, “Westworld” and “Stranger Things” all nabbing five awards. This year, according to new data from YouGov Omnibus, 8% of U.S. adults intend to watch the entire live Emmy’s broadcast, while 37% plan to watch at least a little. Tune into the Emmy Awards ceremony hosted by Stephen Colbert, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, 8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. PT, on CBS. They are on par with “SNL” with the number of awards and won a bunch of Emmy’s from best music supervision to best hairstyling.

However, Noah’s time on the show has not been without controversy.

Year after year, too many Emmy categories are laden with expected and oft-repeated winners.

The first season of the Duffer Brothers’ highly praised sci-fi show was awarded for its cast, picture editing, title design, sound editing and theme music.

Grammy-winning musician and songwriter Common also won his first Emmy for his song Letter to the Free from his documentary film 13th. It was clearly a night to remember for these remarkable shows. She delivers constant punchlines and yet makes the show’s title character into a believably resilient, vulnerable and evolving human being. (Sorry, Barb apologists.) Both McRaney and Bledel are also first-time Emmy winners.

Better Call Saul (AMC): This is the show’s third consecutive Best Drama nomination, but they’ve had no luck so far. It’s a shameful oversight that the Emmys have given so little notice to one of the greatest shows of the past decade.

What are the nominees for outstanding comedy series? Hulu also has multiple nominations for The Handmaid’s Tale as does Amazon for Transparent*.
