The director's 'OJ: Made in America" earned both an Academy Award and an Emmy in a seven-month period.

Ezra Edelman on Saturday won a Creative Arts Emmy for directing his much buzzed-about docuseries OJ: Made in America. With the win, he has won both an Oscar and Emmy in a seven-month period. 

During his acceptance speech, Edelman thanked his crew, saying, "A director is only as good as his team." 

The documentary also scored an Emmy for outstanding picture editing for a nonfiction program. 

Earlier this year, Edelman dedicated his Academy Award win to the victims of police brutalities.

The Creative Arts Emmys are taking place both Saturday and Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Although not airing live, an edited version will be shown on FXX at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday, Sept. 16, a day before the Primetime Emmys
