Creative Arts Emmys 2019: 'Queer Eye' Among Winners, Beyonce's 'Homecoming' Is Snubbed

While wins in the Creative Arts awards don't necessarily point toward Primetime successes, it's hard to imagine the big winners here this weekend won't be taking home some more gold come next Sunday.

Corden won two Emmys as a producer Saturday, for "Carpool Karaoke: The Series", the victor for outstanding short form variety series, and outstanding pre-recorded variety special, "Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool". The second night saw prizes awarded for short-form drama and comedy series, casting, cinematography and guest performers in comedy and drama series. The show was in the race to win in 18 categories on Sunday, out of which it took home 10 trophies.

Winners in the more than 45 other categories were handed out on Saturday in the first part of the two-night Creative Arts ceremony. Taking after the Oscars's decision to go host-less a year ago, the Emmys will not have a host this go around.

Game of Thrones won a further seven Creative Arts Emmys at this year's awards, including another specificly for "The Bells", in Outstanding Sci Fi/Fantasy Costumes. Among the winners in first night were "Queer Eye", "Leaving Neverland", "Saturday Night Live" and "Free Solo".

Other British-based comedy series to triumph in the awards included Fleabag, the BBC Three series published in the US on Amazon Prime: editor Gary Dollner and casting director Olivia Scott-Webb picked up prizes.

Martin Dockrell, of PHE, said there are plans to publish a comprehensive evidence review on the safety of e-cigarettes next year. The devices, available in the United States since 2006, work instead by heating a liquid that turns into vapor and is inhaled .

Game of Thrones got 32 nominations in total, making HBO the network with the most total nominations this year - 137 in all.

HBO's "Chernobyl", which dramatises the story of the 1986 nuclear accident, won seven awards, followed by Amazon Prime Video's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" with six wins, which included acting accolades for Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby.

The Handmaid's Tale excelled itself too this Sunday by taking home awards in both drama guest categories-which was the limit of its eligibility anyway, given it was reduced to submitting episodes from previous year under "hanging episodes" rule.

Awards in the top 27 categories in comedy, drama, competition, limited and variety sketch and talk series will be presented at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards on September 22.
