2017 Creative Arts Emmy Awards: Complete list of all 92 categories

The Creative Arts portion of the Emmy Awards has grown so big that the ceremony has been split into two and will be held this coming weekend (Sept. 9/10) at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. That’s the same venue as the Primetime Emmys, which take place on Sunday, Sept. 17 and air live on CBS.

These precursor prizes often point the way that the main award will go. Last year, “Game of Thrones” claimed a record-breaking nine Creative Arts trophies. We Emmy watchers weren’t shocked when it picking up another three awards at the primetime festivities.

The Creative Arts Emmys honor the best craftspeople in the TV industry, including cinematographers, makeup artists, costume designers, editors, composers, choreographers, and much more. They will also celebrate outstanding achievements in nonfiction, documentary, reality, short form, animated, and interactive programming.

Be sure to check out our racetrack odds in 24 of the 92 Creative Arts categories listed below. Our exclusive forecast is based on the combined predictions of hundreds of savvy Gold Derby users.
