A handful of stage veterans took home trophies September 14 and 15 as the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Among the winners: Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen Tony winner Alex Lacamoire.
The Broadway mainstay earned his first win for his work as music director on the FX limited series Fosse/Verdon, on which he reunited with Hamilton collaborators Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Andy Blankenbuehler. The show also won for Outstanding Makeup for a Limited Series or Movie (Non-Prosthetic) and Outstanding Hairstyling for a Limited Series of Movie.
Live musical broadcasts got some recognition as well, with Fox’s January presentation of Rent winning Outstanding Production Design for a Variety Special for Jason Sherwood, Adam Rowe, and John Sparano as well as Outstanding Lighting Design.
Rachel Bloom, who recently announced she is expecting a child, received her first Emmy Award for the final season of her musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, winning for the song “Antidepressants Are So Not a Big Deal.” The show also landed Kathryn Burns a win for Outstanding Choreography.
Additional winners included recent Off-Broadway star Hannah Gadsby (Douglas) in Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for Nanette, Tony winner Cherry Jones for her guest arc on The Handmaid’s Tale, and director Thom Zimny for the Netflix filmed version of Springsteen on Broadway.
The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards, airing on Fox, will be held September 22.
