Bob’s Burgers, Orange Is the New Black, Game of Thrones Among Early Emmy Winners

I threw my Emmy for you.

tip from me to you

The main Emmys don’t take place until August 25th (on a Monday this year, for some reason—the world is a strange place), but last night we got the Creative Emmys, which consists of  a whole bunch of technical and (wait for it) creative categories like directing, editing, cinematography, and costume design, plus some scattered categories like Outstanding Animated Program, Outstanding Special and Visual Effects, and the guest acting awards. Winners of particular relevance to our geeky purview (Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Cosmos, Orange is the New Black, etc.) are behind the jump—if you’re waiting on the edge of your seat to find out whether Nurse Jackie pulled out a win in the Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation category, The Wrap has the full list of winners and nominees.
