Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys take place at the Nokia Theater, the same venue where the Primetime Emmys will be held on Monday, Aug. 25. While both ceremonies run for three hours, the primetime kudocast hands out only 26 trophies while the creative awardsfest crams in a staggering 80 races.
While more than three-quarters of the Creative Arts awards are in technical and creative categories, the ceremony also bestows 13 programming prizes as well as the four guest acting and reality host Emmys.
