Creative Arts Emmy winners

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards has honored the behind-the-scenes talent of your favorite TV shows!


These special Creative Arts Emmy Awards are presented to recognize the particular achievements of the technical side of the biz, plus guest appearances.

The always fabulous Betty White took home the statue for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for hosting Saturday Night Live, bringing her total career Emmy count to seven. Unfortunately the last standing Golden Girl was not around to pick up her award. Getting a standing ovation instead was Ann-Margret, who won Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her turn on Law & Order: SVU.

The event will air in a two-hour special August 27 at 1 pm on E!
