Juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer group, with the possibility of one, more than one, or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence, there are no nominees, but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include open discussions of each entrant's work, with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. At the conclusion of each deliberation, the jury considers the question, "Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award – yea or nay?" Only those with unanimous approval win.

The 2016 Creative Arts Emmys Awards, executive-produced by Bob Bain, will be held over two nights at the Microsoft Theater from 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11. FXX will broadcast the awards on Saturday, September 17 from 8:00 PM – 10:30 PM (ET/PT) with an encore from 10:30 PM – 1:00AM (ET/PT).
