After two nights and nearly 100 categories, the 2016 Creative Arts Emmys are in the record books with a number of repeats, several surprises, and some refreshing new blood among the winners. After the second ceremony on Sunday night, September 11, our forum posters were extremely excited for the wins by RuPaul Charles (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and more, though they’re disappointed “Crazy” star Rachel Bloom didn’t get to share in the love. Meanwhile, was the “Steven Universe” loss for Best Short Form Animated Program one of the year’s biggest outrages?

Nate: I am very happy for Kathryn Bigelow winning for “Cartel Land” and for Patrika Darbo beating Erinn Hayes [for Best Short Form Actress], but am just floored by the RuPaul win! Maybe there is some hope for new blood after all! Even though “Shark Tank” three-peated and “Anthony Bourdain” four-peated, “Born This Way” managed to stop “Deadliest Catch”! Now let’s just see what happens next Sunday!
ChristopherK: Thrilled “Crazy Ex Girlfriend” won two Emmys! But as Teridax said, of the other two that it lost, Rachel Bloom was a nominee both times. Fingers crossed for next year, dear! By the by, looked her up on IMDB and she was nominated last year as well for writing on “Robot Chicken,” so she’s 0-3.
jjjmoss: The sum total of network show wins while competing as a comedy: “SNL” [for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler], “Big Bang Theory” for Editing, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” for Choreography and Editing. Competing as drama: N/A. So “CEG” had half of all network comedy/drama Creative Arts wins; amazing.
Teridax: “Steven Universe” losing Short Form Animated Program is for me this year’s Finn Wittrock for his spectacular work as Dandy Mott losing to Bill Murray’s forgettable “Olive Kitteridge” work. Both are completely inexcusable.
Atypical: I told you guys to watch out for James Corden [winning Best Variety Special]! Yassss! He could seriously upset in Variety Talk Series!
jeffreykare: The set and costume designers of “Hamilton” both won Emmys tonight!
