Aduba, Janney among winners ‘True Detective’, ‘OITNB’ score at Creative Arts Emmys

 LOS ANGELES, Aug 17, (RTRS): “True Detective” and “Orange Is the New Black” emerged from Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards with key wins and momentum heading into next week’s Primetime Emmycast. “Saturday Night Live” led the field overall with five wins, including guest comedy actor for “Tonight Show’s” Jimmy Fallon for hosting last December. The same episode won the variety series directing trophy for “SNL” vet Don Roy King during the marathon kudos presentation held at the Nokia Theater in downtown L.A. HBO’s “True Detective” landed four wins in craft and technical categories, including casting and cinematography for a drama series. HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Fox/Nat Geo TV’s “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” and PBS’ “Sherlock: His Last Vow” also claimed four awards.

“OITNB” clinched guest actress in a comedy for the much-praised Uzo Aduba (pictured) along with two other awards: casting in a comedy series and single-camera picture editing for a comedy. “Scandal’s” Joe Morton got the nod for guest actor in a drama series while Allison Janney won guest actress in a drama for Showtime’s “Masters.” Morton walked away a winner for his first-ever Emmy nom. Janney is a double nominee this year, also for her costarring role on the CBS comedy “Mom.”

Accepting her trophy, Janney thanked the “Masters” team, particularly the crew member. The win marked Emmy No. 5 for Janney, who previously landed four statuettes for her role on NBC’s “The West Wing.”
Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” won for writing for a variety series. Discovery’s “Deadliest Catch” hooked the Emmy for unstructured reality program; ABC’s “Shark Tank” won for structured reality program. (Still to come next week is the prize for reality-competition series.) Jane Lynch won the reality host trophy for NBC’s “Hollywood Game Night.” Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers” won for animation program. TNT’s “AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks” took the variety-special award. FX’s “Fargo,” coming in with 18 nominations, scored the casting for a miniseries win.
 
Highlighted
The work of casting directors was highlighted in the presentation of this year’s Governors Award, which was a posthumous tribute to Marion Dougherty, the film and TV vet credited with coining the term “casting director.” Jon Voight, who is nommed for supporting actor for Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” told the Nokia crowd the story of how she cast him in the landmark 1969 pic “Midnight Cowboy.” “You can certainly feel the love she had for this industry, the love she had for her work, and the love that all of us had for this remarkable woman,” Voight said of Dougherty. “There couldn’t be a more perfect recipient for this prestigious award.”
 
Costumes for a miniseries was sewn up by the team from FX’s “American Horror Story: Coven.” “Game of Thrones” nabbed costumes for a series.” “How I Met Your Mother” d.p. Christian La Fountaine won his second consecutive trophy in the multi camera category. HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” one of this year’s top nominees with 16 bids, scored its first win for longform makeup. The team led by Sherri Berman Laurence had the tough job of allowing actors to portray the ravages of AIDS. “True Detective” won for single-camera series makeup (non-prosthetic), while the prosthetic glory went to “Game of Thrones.” Multi-camera makeup honors went to “Saturday Night Live.” Veteran producer Don Was wins music direction for his work on the CBS tribute special “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America.”
 
Alan Silvestri beat out higher-profile competition to win music composition for a series for Fox/Nat Geo TV’s “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.” And Silvestri won a second trophy for main title theme music for “Cosmos.” David Arnold and Michael Price of PBS’ “Sherlock: His Last Vow” won music composition for a miniseries or special. “Bigger,” the tune penned by Tom Kitt and Lin-Manuel Miranda that was warbled by Neil Patrick Harris during last year’s Tony Awards telecast wins for original music and lyrics. The choreography award once again was bagged by Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” for Tabitha Dumo and Napoleon Dumo.
 
The spotlight for lighting design fell on the team from ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” for series, and the crew from NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremonies of the Sochi Winter Games wins for special.
HBO docu “One Last Hug: Three Days at Grief Camp” wins for children’s program.
“Cosmos” won a writing award but was topped by in the docu/nonfiction series category in a tie between PBS’ “American Masters” and Showtime’s “Years of Living Dangerously.”
CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” and HBO’s “Vice” tied for the win in the informational series heat.
Jennifer Euston won the casting award for “OITNB.” Casting for a drama series went to HBO’s “True Detective” (Alexa L. Fogel, Christine Kromer, Meagan Lewis); FX’s “Fargo” won casting for miniseries (Rachel Tenner, Jackie Lind).
