Creative Arts Emmys 2016: The Complete Winners’ List

HBO and FX continued to dominate both evenings, but Netflix came in with six wins thanks to “Making a Murderer”

Creative Arts Emmys Making a Murderer Game of Thrones RuPaul

The first part of the Emmys is over: The Creative Arts Emmys doled out their awards over the weekend, and there were but a few surprises. HBO and FX, fueled by “Game of Thrones” and “The People v O.J. Simpson,” respectively, rocketed to 16 and 12 wins, far ahead of anyone else in the pack.

But Netflix, thanks to “Making a Murderer” and “What Happened, Miss Simone?” made its presence felt in the nonfiction categories, bringing home six statues, and there was the unexpected sight of RuPaul Charles, host of Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” winning best reality host.

And though the digital players are still far behind traditional shows, total-wise, Amazon, AOL and even virtual reality platform Oculus won themselves a new kind of hardware.

The Primetime Emmy Awards main event is next Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. The two nights of Creative Arts Emmys will be cut into one telecast that will air Saturday on FXX.
