'SNL', 'Childrens Hospital', and More Win Creative Arts Emmys

The Creative Arts Emmys were this Saturday. Though mostly it was awards like "Best Light Mixing in a Reality Program," there were also some odds and ends of note. Childrens Hospital – yep, Childrens Hospital will now be known as "The Emmy Award-winning Childrens Hospital" – won for Outstanding Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Program. The Daily Show won for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series because they always win. Jimmy Fallon won the award for Outstanding Guest Star in a Comedy Series for his turn hosting SNL. SNL also won for the direction and camerawork on the Mick Jagger episode, and hairstyling for the Zooey Deschanel episode. (I guess the Emmy voters are also into bangs.)
