USS Callister on Saturday took home the Emmy for outstanding TV movie at the Creative Arts Emmys, marking the second consecutive win for an episode of Netflix's Black Mirror anthology series.

"It's surprising that we are in the fiction category because it's a story about a misogynistic bully ... who is in a position of authority that he shouldn't be in," quipped executive producer Charlie Brooker, who accepted the Emmy with fellow exec producers Annabell Hones and Louise Sutton.

Coincidentally, the series was inspired by Star Trek, which received the Governors Award during the ceremony. Asked about the possibility of a spinoff of the story, the producers didn't rule it out.

USS Callister also received trophies in the categories for picture editing and sound editing.
