Creative Arts Emmys Night 1 Predictions

The 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be presented this weekend in two parts – on Saturday, September 8th and Sunday, September 9th. These cover the wide array of technical and ‘below the line’ categories like Stunt Coordination, Music Supervision or Single-Camera Picture Editing bu they also give us the Guest Acting categories. 

Although the Creative Arts Emmys event is filmed, it doesn’t air for broadcast until September 15th on FXX.

The ‘above the line’ Emmy categories will be presented at the Primetime Emmys ceremony on Monday, September 17th. 

Here are my predictions for night one of the Creative Arts Emmys (winner predix in bold)

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
