THE AWARDS WERE GIVEN IN A SPECIAL BOX AT WAIST LEVEL: Last night, the Creative Arts Emmys were presented (a/k/a: all those categories that usually no one cares about). Winners included a number of ALOTT5MA faves and focuses (foci?), including:
  • Friday Night Lights (Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series)
  • Elaine Stritch (Outstanding Guest Actress/Comedy, 30 Rock)
  • House (the episode with the really, really, obsese guy who dies of cancer, for prosthetic makeup)
  • TAR (for reality program editing and cinematography)
  • Dexter (for main title design and editing)
  • HIMYM (outstanding art direction, for three episodes, including the ones with the quietly vanished blue horn)
  • Wade Robson and Mia Michaels (choreography)
  • Timberlake, Samberg, et al. (outstanding original song, "D**k in a Box")
  • South Park (outstanding animated program, "Make Love, Not Warcraft")
  • Battlestar Galactica (outstanding visual effects)
  • Rome (cinematography, art design, hairstyling)
  • Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip (outstanding guest actor, drama, John Goodman)
  • Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List (Best Reality Program, distinguished from Best Reality: Competition Program, over Penn & Teller: B******t and Crying and Hugging Time With Ty Pennington)
  • Spike Lee (outstanding director, nonfiction programming, for When the Levees Broke)

Some inexplicables (Stanley Tucci beating Martin Landau and Beau Bridges for Guest Actor/Comedy, Leslie Caron beating Kate Burton for Guest Actress/Drama, The Tudors beating 30 Rock for theme music) but a pretty good series of awards.
