What Do Creative Arts Emmy Wins Mean For The Networks On TV's Big Night?
The new issue of The Hollywood Reporter breaks down the count net-by-net from the Sept. 10 Creative Arts Emmys event and what the awards mean for the big show.
A leading 7 wins for Boardwalk Empire -- in categories including art direction and casting that Mad Men won last year -- might foretell a new drama series champion crowned Sept. 18.
FOX : 9
Glee won only 2 Emmys despite 9 noms in creative arts categories and a campaign that focused on the behind-the-scenes effort required to pull off the show.
Jeff Probst's fourth consecutive win for reality host is a bit surprising considering Survivor wasn't even nominated this year in the reality-competition series category.
Saturday Night Live's 3 wins -- including for host Justin Timberlake as comedy guest actor -- brings its all-time total to 34.
History, Discovery: 4
Switching categories paid off for Deadliest Catch, which took the top reality series prize after years of nominations (but no wins) for nonfiction series.
Loretta Devine (Grey's Anatomy) scoring the drama guest actress statuette might be the upset of the night because she beat the likes of Alfre Woodard (True Blood), Julia Stiles (Dexter) and Mary McDonnell (The Closer).
Cartoon Network, ReelzChannel: 3
Big wins for The Kennedys (hairstyling, makeup, sound mixing) are a coup for Reelz, which will televise the ceremony Sept. 17 and can now promote itself as an Emmy-winning network.
AMC, Comedy Central: 2
Futurama's second win for animated program is its first since the show was resurrected in 2008 by Comedy Central after being canceled by Fox in 2003.
Disney Channel, Showtime: 2
The Borgias' dual wins (costumes, main title music) should relieve some of Showtime's disappointment at the Jeremy Irons drama being shut out of the coveted series and acting categories.
