For the first time, the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out over two nights. On Night 1, Game of Thrones took home nine wins, Diane Warren picked up an Emmy for the powerful anthem "Til It Happens to You" and Margo Martindale earned a record-breaking win for guest actress in a drama series on The Americans. Martindale has now won the Emmy for the second year in a row.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler also made history as the first duo to share the win for best guest actress in a comedy series at the Creative Arts Emmys, a first in the award's history. RuPaul earned his first Emmy win for best host of a reality or reality competition show for RuPaul's Drag Race.
"I really didn’t expect this," RuPaul said backstage after accepting the statuette. "I came here thinking I got invited to the prom and I’m going to dance my ass off tonight, but I didn’t expect that I would have this in my hand while I was dancing. It’s a very special night not just for me but for all the young people around the world who dance to the beat of a different drummer."
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story also won big with five nods, including one for the special Inside Look: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. The winners were announced at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles (the show will air Sept. 17, the night before the Primetime Emmys, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX).
A complete list of winners follows.
