Emmys: Twitch, Facebook, 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' and 'Patriot Act' Among Juried Award Winners

Several categories pertaining to animation, choreography, interactive programming and motion design were determined by juries, not an entire peer group, of the TV Academy.

Millions of people will tune in to the Primetime Emmys on Sept. 22, voting for which is ongoing and will continue through Thursday. But many Emmys recognizing lower-profile categories will be handed out at the Creative Arts Awards ceremonies on Sept. 14 and Sept. 15, and the results of several — those determined by juries, not an entire peer group, or branch, of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, pertaining to animation, choreography, interactive programming and motion design — were announced Friday by the TV Academy.

Twitch, the live-streaming video platform that is massively popular among young people, was among those receiving good news — it won its first Emmy, for outstanding innovation in interactive media, for Artificial. Netflix also celebrated numerous wins — four for Love, Death & Robots in the category of outstanding individual achievement in animation, plus one, outstanding motion design, for Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj. And The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which wrapped its run in April, was recognized for outstanding choreography for scripted programming, marking choreographer Kathryn Burns' second win — and the third overall — for the musical show.

A complete list of this year's juried award winners follows.
