John Adams, Mad Men, Kimmel Win Creative Arts Emmys


HBO's John Adams and AMC's Mad Men kicked off what should be an awards-filled Emmy season over the weekend, when the annual Creative Arts Emmys were handed out in LA. John Adams took home eight awards at the ceremony, while Mad Men nabbed four of its own.

The Creative Arts Emmys recognize a variety of technical categories (lighting design, etc.) — but they also award some Emmys that non-industry types can understand, too. Tim Conway nabbed an Emmy for his guest role on 30 Rock, while Kathryn Joosten beat out several 30 Rock guest stars to take home a statuette for her Desperate Housewives role. Cynthia Nixon and Glynn Turman won Emmys in the drama guest actor and actress categories.

Meanwhile, the "I'm F***ing Matt Damon" episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live won two Emmys — alas, nothing for the Ben Affleck companion piece. Also winners: This American Life, Wade Robson's choreography for So You Think You Can Dance, and . . . Pirate Master. The show, which Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Chalke co-hosted, will air on Saturday night, but to see all the winners now, just read more.
