Creative Arts Emmys 2010 Winners

Last night saw The Creative Arts Emmys take place, which is basically an excuse to get most of the lesser categories out of the way before the big show next Sunday.

The main categories that were announced last night included the outstanding guest star in both comedy and drama for actors and actresses. So this gives me my first chance to check off how I did with my predictions when the nominees were announced last month…

As the above picture probably gives away guest actor in a comedy went to Neil Patrick Harris for his turn as Bryan Ryan in Glee. I picked Mike O’Malley as the most deserving of the nominees and Harris obviously thought O’Malley was just as deserving, going as far as to name drop him in his speech. I had also suggested that Emmy golden boy Jon Hamm could inexplicably win here for his guest spot on 30 Rock, so no points here!

Of course Betty White won guest actress in a comedy and although I disagree with SNL being included in this category for the performers when the show doesn’t qualify itself I rightly picked out Betty White for this award so I’m 1 for 2.

Guest actor in a drama series went to predictably John Lithgow, who was, from what I’ve read, unreal on Dexter last season – I rightly tipped him last month, so I go 2 for 3.

Finally of the important awards last night, and by important I mean the ones I actually covered in my nominations piece last month, was guest actress in a drama series which went to Ann-Margret for Law & Order: SVU. This was a tough category for me to pick a winner in as I was only familiar with Elizabeth Mitchell’s work so I took a wild stab at Lily Tomlin here so it puts me at a 50% strike rate thus far.

We’ll see how that total changes after the main show next Sunday, but in the meantime you can check out the full list of winners from last night’s show after the jump:
