The Creative Arts Emmy Award were handed out Saturday night and HBO's 10-part World War II miniseries The Pacific was the big winner, picking up seven Emmys. However, the biggest winner of all may be Neil Patrick Harris, who won two awards for his guest performance on Glee and hosting the Tony Awards. And he's not done, as Harris has a chance at a third Emmy this year next week where he's nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy for How I Met Your Mother.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


NPH's win was one of two for Glee, but the new comedy is getting an early run for the top prize as fellow Outstanding Comedy Series nominee Modern Family won three awards.

The evening's other big winners were John Lithgow win for Dexter, Betty White win for hosting Saturday Night Live and Ann-Margaret for Law and Order: SVU. Jeff Probst picked up the Reality Host Emmy while The Colbert Report beat out Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show for the Variety Series Writing award.
