Creative Arts Emmy Awards 2016: Complete list of all 91 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. 10/11) at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. That’s the same venue as the Primetime Emmys, which take place on Sunday, Sept. 18 and air live on ABC.

These precursor prizes often point the way that the main award will go. Last year, “Game of Thrones” claimed a record-breaking eight Creative Arts trophies. We Emmywatchers weren’t shocked when it smashed the all-time benchmark of nine (set by “The West Wing” in 2000) by picking up another four awards at the primetime festivities.

We’re predicting 36 Emmy categories this year, and nine of them will be presented during these two Creative Arts ceremonies. Have you made your predictions yet?

Do that right here. You’ll compete to win our contest prizes for best picks — $500 (first place), $300 (second place) and $200 (third place) in Amazon gift certificates — a place of honor on our leaderboard and a starring role in next year’s Top 24 Users (the two dozen folks who do the best predicting this year’s Emmys). Be sure to read our contest rules.
