The Last of Us Comes in First at Saturday Creative Arts Emmys

The dystopian HBO drama leads the way with eight Emmys, including two guest performer honors; three programs follow with four each.

Last was first at the first.

Translation: At the first of two 75th Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies, the HBO drama The Last of Us led the night with honors in eight categories.

Set in the aftermath of a pandemic that has turned large portions of the global population into fungus-infected zombies, The Last of Us, adapted from the popular video game of the same name, took awards for outstanding guest actress, which went to Storm Reid; guest actor, won by Nick Offerman; picture editing; main title design; prosthetic makeup; sound editing; sound mixing and visual effects.

There was a three-way tie for second-most Emmys, with four each: the FX comedy The Bear, the Netflix comedy Wednesday and another HBO drama, The White Lotus.

The Bear won for outstanding comedy casting, picture editing, sound editing and sound mixing; Wednesday scored wins for outstanding contemporary costumes, contemporary makeup, main title music and production design; and The White Lotus captured Emmys for outstanding drama casting, contemporary hairstyling, music supervision and music composition for original score.

Close behind, with three Emmys, was the Netflix limited series BEEF, followed by four programs with two each: Prime Video's limited series Daisy Jones and the Six; the comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, also from Prime Video; another comedy, Ted Lasso, from Apple TV+; and the Roku Channel telefilm Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

BEEF won for outstanding casting for a limited or anthology series or movie, contemporary costumes and picture editing. Daisy Jones won for outstanding period costumes and sound mixing, Mrs. Maisel for outstanding period makeup and cinematography. Ted Lasso took outstanding guest actor in a comedy series, which went to Sam Richardson (his first ever), as well as outstanding music and lyrics, for the song "A Beautiful Game." Weird was a winner for outstanding music composition and television movie.

In the other guest performer category, Judith Light was named outstanding guest actress in a comedy for the Peacock comedy Poker Face. It was the first career Emmy for five-time nominee Light and the first-ever Emmy for the streaming platform Peacock.

Jasmine Guy took the Emmy for outstanding actress in a short form comedy or drama for her performance in Prime Video's Chronicles of Jessica Wu, and outstanding actor in a short form comedy or drama went to Tim Robinson for the Netflix sketch series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson. Guy's Emmy was the first of her career; Robinson's was his second — he prevailed in the same category in 2022.

The Saturday Creative Arts show focused primarily on scripted programming. A second show, on Sunday, will be dedicated to crafts in reality, unscripted and documentary programming.

Bob Bain is executive producer of the Creative Arts Emmys for the ninth time. The Television Academy's Creative Arts Emmy Awards Committee is led by cochairs Charlie McBrearty and Nena Erb.

FXX will broadcast edited highlights from the Saturday and Sunday Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, September 13, at 8:00 PM ET/PT. It will be available for streaming on Hulu on Sunday, January 14.

The 75th Emmys telecast will air live Monday, September 15, at 8:00 pm ET/5:00 PT, on Fox.
