Dave Chappelle’s Sticks & Stones swept the Variety Special categories at night five of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, winning the top award plus both directing and writing for a variety special.
Maya Rudolph, a triple Emmy nominee this year, won her second in as many nights tonight, securing her first win in Guest Actress for a Comedy Series (for her appearance as Kamala Harris on Saturday Night Live) following up her historic win for Character Voice-Over (for Big Mouth) the night before. Rudolph is the first Black actress to win in this category since Uzo Aduba in 2014 when Orange is the New Black was still in the comedy category.
Ron Cephas Jones won his second Guest Actor in a Drama Series Emmy for playing William Hill in This Is Us, making him the first actor ever to win twice in this category for playing the same character. His daughter, Jasmine, won Short Form Actress last night, making them the first father/daughter duo to win in the same year.
Cherry Jones won her second Emmy in a row for Guest Actress in a Drama Series, this time for her turn in HBO’s Succession as a Walmart-type heiress.
RuPaul Charles won his 5th Host for a Reality or Competition Program Emmy, breaking the record previously set by Jeff Probst of Survivor. RuPaul’s Drag Race now has 5 Emmy wins this season.
BoJack Horseman lost Animated Program, in its final season, to previous winner Rick and Morty.
Emmy leaders The Mandalorian and Watchmen increased their numbers with Ludwig Göransson (The Mandalorian) leading the way in Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score). This win puts him just a T away from EGOT.
Once again, these Emmys were pre-recorded and hosted by Emmy nominee Nicole Byer (Nailed It!). Tomorrow night’s Primetime Emmy Awards will be live and hosted for the third time by Jimmy Kimmel.
