The Creative Arts Emmys ceremony was held last September 15 at the Nokia Theatre and Margo Martindale was one of the presenters.
FXX will air an edited version of the ceremony on September 21 at 9pm Eastern/Pacific.
The ceremony was started off by Joel McHale, star of the ‘The Soup’ and NBC’s critically acclaimed, Emmy snubbed, and ratings starved ‘Community’ with the genius season 1,2,3,5, show runner Dan “The Man” Harmon. They presented the first Emmys including 3 awards for casting and 1 award for guest comedy actress. Neil Patrick Harris, star of the hit show ‘How I Met Your Mother’ presented the last awards and will host the Primetime Emmys.
The first award was won by Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ for drama series casting. There wasn’t too much time for speeches as music started playing as soon as the winners got up to receive their awards. The winners wouldn’t care, they just won an Emmy.
‘Behind the Candelabra’, one of the most talked about TV movie of the year won casting for a mini-series. Expect this to be one of the many awards that this TV movie will win. If you’re placing a bet, always bet on A-list actors acting as gay people. They always win.
30 Rock was given one of its final awards for casting, this show will be missed.
There were a lot of Awards for that night but one of the highlights was when Margo Martindale presented the award for main title theme music. She sang an explanation of ‘The Americans’ using the famous tune of the opening theme of the ‘Brady Bunch’, it was called “The Commie Bunch”. The Emmy went to Bear McCreary and ‘DaVinci’s Demons’ of the Starz network.
I couldn’t find a clip of what she did but I bet it was awesome! All we could do now is just wait for the September 21st airing at FXX.
