Game of Thrones, Chernobyl and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel led the winners at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys this weekend.
The Emmys will dish out it main Primetime prizes next weekend, but HBO wasn’t waiting until then to dominate proceedings, with the final run of its fantasy epic taking home 10 awards over the two nights, out of its record haul of 32 nominations.
Chernobyl was close behind, bagging seven wins, while Amazon’s Mrs. Maisel won six awards, including acting prices for Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby. Guest acting prices also went to The Handmaid’s Tale for Bradley Whitford and Cherry Jones, while less surprising winners included RuPaul, whose Drag Race victory lap continues with a win for Outstanding Host (among others) yet again.
Beyoncé was notably snubbed or her Netflix special, Homecoming, but the streaming giant enjoyed success for its hard-hitting When They See Us. Other notable successes across the two nights included BBC Three’s Fleabag and National Geographic’s documentary, Free Solo.
Other winners included HBO’s Succession, which won Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, and BBC Two’s new short-form comedy series, State of the Union, which won acting prizes for Chris O’Dowd and Rosamund Pike. You can watch that box set on BBC iPlayer now.
