Is Orange the new gold? The winner at the Creative Arts Emmys might foretell a big Orange Is the New Black presence on the primetime awards telecast Aug. 25. The Jenji Kohan comedy scored three major wins — the most of any nominated comedy — at the Aug. 16 crafts and technical awards ceremony: for single-camera picture editing, guest comedy actress Uzo Aduba and casting for a comedy series for casting director Jennifer Euston.
The latter has proved prescient for gold before: Four-time reigning winner ABC’s Modern Family nabbed the casting and series trophies for its first season in 2010; six years earlier, in 2004, Fox’s Arrested Development saw the same sequence of wins. And NBC’s 30 Rock nabbed comedy casting trophies each of the three years it also won best comedy. HBO’s Game of Thrones and True Detective and PBS’ Sherlock: His Last Vow each won four Creative Arts honors this year, though the dramatic categories have proved much tougher to predict.
