Prelude to the real Emmys: Betty White, John Lithgow, Old Spice dude and creative-arts winners

In television on 08/22/2010 at 6:35 pm

Creative Arts Emmys were handed out Saturday, an appetizer for next Sunday (Aug. 29) when the more prominent categories are handed out.
Of course, Betty White won for best guest in a comedy series, that being her hosting stint of Saturday Night Live. It is a tribute to her skills and appeal that she can be at once the most over-exposed performer in U.S. entertainment right now, and still celebrated for this prize.
Most of the categories are technical, but there are a few that mean something to regular viewers like you and me:
Best guest actor in a drama: John Lithgow for Dexter, probably the most richly deserved acting away on the Emmy ticket this year. Chilly, chilly good as the family-man serial killer.
Best guest actor in a comedy series: Neil Patrick Harris as Bryan Ryan on Glee
Best guests actress in a drama series: Ann-Margret, Law & Order: SVU
Best short-format animated program: Robot Chicken
Best voice-over: Anne Hathaway for Once Upon a Time in Springfield
Best non-fiction series: The National Parks: America’s Best Idea
Best commercial: The Man Your Man Could Smell Like, Old Spice Body Wash
Best reality program: Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
Best host for a reality or reality-competiton program: Jeff Probst, Survivor
