Louis C.K., Melissa Leo, ‘Childrens Hospital’ Won at the Creative Arts Emmys
The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, where awards are given to technical positions as well as categories that don’t quite fit into the main Emmys night, were held last night, and as is the way with award shows these days, Louis C.K. did pretty well for himself. He won for Outstanding Writing For A Variety Special for his HBO special, Oh My God, and Melissa Leo won Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series for her fantastic appearance on Louie.
Other big comedy winners included Bob Newhart for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for his turn on The Big Bang Theory, Childrens Hospital for Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program, and Outstanding Interactive Program for Jon Stewart’s standup gala Night Of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together For Autism, while Outstanding Animated Program went to South Park for the episode “Raising The Bar.” An edited version of the event will air Saturday, Sept 21 on FXX, and the full list of winners is over at Hitfix.
