Did you know the Creative Arts Emmys were this weekend? Of course you didn’t! They aren’t nearly as important as the Primetime Emmys, which will air on August 29, but a few of our favorite celebs actually showed up this year, so let’s find out who won!
The Creative Arts Emmys (dubbed the Schmemmys by Kathy Griffin) are gaining more attention each year – due in part, I’d argue, to Griffin’s mocking. Ryan Seacrest was among the celebs who attended — he picked up an award for producing Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. Neil Patrick Harris put on his best suit to accept the award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on Glee. He was also honored for making the Tony Awards watchable (or something like that).
Beloved octogenarian Betty White won a trophy for her highly-anticipated episode of Saturday Night Live, though she couldn’t make it to the ceremony. My celeb crush Isaiah Mustafa’s Old Spice ad won for Outstanding Commercial. We’re really hoping the ad agency behind the spots, Wieden + Kennedy, lets Mustafa take the trophy home – after all, the ads would be nothing without “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” himself.
But those weren’t the only important winners. Click here to read more about the Creative Arts Emmys, which, if this year is any indication, may soon be important enough to be considered a “real” awards show! (Newser, PopEater)
