Los Angeles, CA (Variety) — The parade of Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies wraps up with one final, two-hour event on Saturday night — now underway on FXX. Like the four shows streamed earlier this week, the Saturday show is virtually live, which means the segments were pre-taped, but the show is being produced in real time, as reps from Ernst & Young reveal winners to the show's control room over the next two hours.
As the marquee Creative Arts Emmys ceremony, Saturday night's event includes all four guest performer categories, as well as major awards such as animated program and television movie.
This year's Creative Arts Emmys has already made a bit of history, as new outlets including Disney Plus and Quibi received their first Emmys, while stars including Maya Rudolph (“Big Mouth”) and Trent Reznor (“Watchmen”) also landed their first.
Nicole Byer hosted all five nights of the Creative Arts Emmys, which were produced by Bob Bain Prods. All nominees were asked to send in acceptance speeches, with only the winners' thank yous being played. According to TV Academy president Maury McIntyre, about 96% of nominees participated. For talent, it was a bit of a surreal experience.
