The Creative Arts Emmys were held Saturday night, and some big names
one the major awards. The Guest Acting awards are usually the big
draw, and this year was no exception. On the Drama side, Ellen Burstyn
won for Law and Order: SVU
while Michael J. Fox won for his recurring
role on Rescue Me.
On the Comedy side, two Saturday Night Live
guests won, with Justin Timberlake receiving an acting award for the episode he hosted (which, coincidentally, NBC re-aired Saturday night as well) and Tina Fey won for her recurring role as Governor Sarah Palin.
Other than those, some of the other big wins went to South Park
for Outstanding Animated Series while shows like American Idol, Pushing Daisies
and 30 Rock
all won multiple technical awards. Chuck
also received an Emmy for stunt coordination, and So You Think You Can
Dance picked up awards for Costumes and Choreography, singling out Tyce Diorio's work on the Adam and Eve routine.
But for online fans, the most exciting news is that Joss Whedon is now an Emmy winner. Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog
took home the award for Short-Form Live Action Entertainment Special Class Program. It doesn't matter if the category has so many words that it's impossible to fully understand what it means, all that matters is Joss Whedon has an Emmy.
The primetime Emmys will air next Sunday on CBS at 8pm.
