What time do the Creative Arts Emmy Awards start?

The Creative Arts Emmys take place on Saturday (Aug. 16) at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles with the three-hour plus ceremony kicking off at 4 p.m. PT/ 7 p.m. ET.

Almost all of the awards, which number a whopping 80, are in technical categories that honor hundreds of below-the line television talent. However, the four guest acting winners as well as top reality host will also be crowned on Saturday.
