Creative Arts Emmys Preview: Guest Actor and Guest Actress (Drama and Comedy), Reality Host Predictions


As is usual, the Creative Arts Emmys are held the weekend before the Primetime Emmys. We’ll see a handful of technical awards handed out but also four important acting awards for the guest performances and also for Reality Host. Those winners will then present on Monday, August 25th at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Here are who our Emmy Experts  (yours truly included) think will be taking home Emmy gold tomorrow.
