Game of Thrones and Sherlock honoured at Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Orange Is The New Black and Breaking Bad  were also honoured at the ceremony

Game of Thrones and Sherlock have each walked away with four awards at this year’s Creative Arts Emmys.

HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones took home prizes for User Experience and Visual Design and Outstanding costumes. While the season four finale ‘The Children’ was given awards for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup and Outstanding Special and Visual Effects. The episode featured the infamous White Walkers and furious fire-breathing dragons.   

The show is adapted from George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels and is renowned for its high production values in re-creating in vivid detail the expansive fantasy world depicted in the books.

 

Meanwhile home grown favourite Sherlock was given the award for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a miniseries for the final episode of series three ‘His Last Vow’. The episode saw the super-sleuth kill media mogul Charles Augustus Magnussen before he was swiftly exonerated to investigate the return of Moriarty.

The show also garnered awards in the categories of Music Composition for a miniseries, Sound editing for a miniseries and single-camera picture editing.

Other notable winners included Netflix series Orange Is The New Black, which was awarded three trophies. Uzo Aduba was presented with a trophy for playing Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren in the category of Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.

The on-demand show also won awards for Outstanding Picture editing in comedy series and Outstanding casting in comedy series.

Orange Is The New Black (L-R) Diane Guerrero, Jackie Cruz, Dascha Polanco and Kate Mulgrew
Breaking Bad won Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series.

Comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live took home the most prizes after it earned five trophies.

The Creative Arts Emmys are held the weekend before the Emmy Awards, which will be broadcast on 25 August.
