‘Orange is the New Black’, Harry Shearer, HBO all win Creative Arts Emmys


The Primetime Emmy Awards are a week away, but this past weekend the Creative Arts Emmys awarded many of the other finest in television. Among the highlights, Harry Shearer, the long running character actor behind many of the voices on The Simpsons, won his first ever Emmy for Outstanding Character Voice Over Performance. The Netflix show Orange is the New Black also picked up its first three of what may be many Emmys to come next week, including awards for Best Casting for a Comedy, Best Single-Camera Editing for a Comedy and Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Uzo Aduba.

The Creative Emmys even continued the trend of expanding what’s actually considered TV. Oscar nominated documentary The Square, which made its premiere on Netflix last year, won two Emmys, and a segment of Zach Galifianakis’ web series Between Two Ferns featuring President Obama won for “Outstanding Short-Format Live Action Entertainment Program.”

HBO still dominated however, claiming 15 statues, followed by NBC with 10 and PBS with eight. View the complete list of winners at The Hollywood Reporter.
