2011 Creative Arts Emmys: John Walsh, Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Timberlake, Jeff Probst, 'Deadliest Catch', 'Boardwalk Empire'

2011 Creative Arts Emmys By The Numbers; ANALYSIS: Newcomer ‘Boardwalk Empire’, Comeback Kid ‘Futurama’, Justin Timberlake & Jeff Probst Rule The Creative Emmys

The first 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out this afternoon at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Like last year, pairings of showrunners with talent from the shows they produce presented. They included Jon Cryer & Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men), Connie Britton & Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), Phil Keoghan & Bertram Van Munster (The Amazing Race), Jeff Probst & Mark Burnett (Survivor) and Chris Colfer & Brad Falchuk (Glee). Among the categories awarded today were Outstanding Reality Series and Best Guest Actors/Actresses in both Drama and Comedy series. The ceremony will air September 17 on ReelzChannel. Deadline’s Diane Haithman and Karen Nicoletti were on the scene. Walking the Red Carpet leading to tonight’s awards, Robert Kirkman, the Executive Producer of Walking Dead, reminds us that the Creative Emmys are for categories that are “the heart and soul of the television shows.”

And the winners are:

Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series
Harry’s Law • NBC • Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with David E. Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television
Paul McCrane as Josh Peyton

Winning the evening’s final award, Paul McCrane dedicated it to the memory of his father, James J. McCrane. “He would do anything to make a living in this business,” he said, adding that any actor who can make a living at the craft is lucky. “Anything else is gravy, and this makes some awfully nice gravy.”
BACKSTAGE: “I would like to say [the award] really doesn’t matter that much, but the truth is the nomination meant a lot to me. It was a fun challenging character that David Kelley wrote. I worked really hard on it, and I was happy with the work. Some other people were too, and that was really gratifying.” McCrane said that these days he is directing a lot of episodic TV “and I act when they let me. On Monday I go back to work on Harry’s Law.” He recently helmed a Harry’s Law episode and has directed CSI, “the mothership,” and has another CSI directing gig coming up next month. He said that Ted Danson’s addition to the CSI cast “breathes all kind of new life into the show. But [as a director] you don’t reinvent the wheel over there. They know what they’re doing.”

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series
Grey’s Anatomy • ABC • ABC Studios
Loretta Devine as Adele Webber

This is her first Emmy nomination and first win. “I’ve been on that show for seven years, and they always make it feel like I’m coming home.”
Backstage, Loretta Devine updated on her career. She will be back on Grey’s Anatomy: “They haven’t killed me yet.” Says work continues on her upcoming TV series State of Georgia, starring Raven Symone for ABC Family: “We are trying to wait to see what happens to that. ” Also in the works for her is the film sequel to Terry McMillan’s Waiting to Exhale called Getting to Be Happy.

Presenting team of Friday Night Lights executive producer Jason Katims and co-star Connie Britton gave a makeup award and joked about how little makeup there was on FNL, a show known for “sweat and grittiness”.
Jason Katims: “Makeup aside, we are so proud to have made a show about human dignity.”
Connie Britton: “If I’d had a little more makeup, I would have had a little more human dignity.”

Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series
Saturday Night Live • NBC • SNL Studios in association with Universal Media Studios and Broadway Video
Justin Timberlake, Host

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series
Glee • FOX • Ryan Murphy Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television
Gwyneth Paltrow as Holly Holliday

After Gwyneth Paltrow’s Glee win for Outstanding Guest Actress, the presenters joked about her absence. Alison Brie: Gwyneth Paltrow is not here. She couldn’t make it because she is at Happy Hour at the Starlight Room. Dan Harmon: Snap!

Governors Award honoree John Walsh, backstage, talked about how continuing to do specials for Fox, which carried his show America’s Most Wanted for 23 years, is like “dating your ex.” The always-intense Walsh says he accepted the offer to move his program to Lifetime instead of accepting any of “tons” of other offers, including hosting other sorts of crime-related programs, because “all I really want to do is catch bad guys and find missing children.” He says he is still trying to get an international crime-busting program, The World’s Most Wanted, off the ground.

Bob Mackie: Growing up, I wanted to be Fred Astaire… or probably Ann Miller.

Later, Maya Rudolph, as a presenter of  Outstanding Directing for  a Variety, Music or Comedy Special, introduced herself as “Mitzi Gaynor’s nipple tassels”.

It was my idea to put hair in the show. [He shushes Alison] It is the creator’s time. I created an Emmy nominated show. This is a platform to get some stuff of my chest. Glee didn’t get a hair nomination either. You’ve got the heart, but where’s the hair? Bad hair day, Glee?”

Justin Timberlake, Lyrics by
John Mulaney, Lyrics by

(Correction: SNL was nominated for 2 Justin Timberlake songs. The other one, 3 Way, Timberlake’s collaboration with Andy Samberg and the rest of the Lonely Island gang, did not win.)

Seth Meyers accepts for SNL saying: “Justin Timberlake wanted to be here. But we said, no, they really want to see the writers.”
Backstage, Meyers said that Justin Timberlake provided the idea of singing a song about not wanting to sing, and that gave the writers something to run with. Asked where he plans to keep his Emmy, Meyers said: “I’m just going to put it somewhere where Andy Samberg can see it.”

Deadline asked if Meyers and the SNL writing staff is looking forward to a fun 2012 election year: “Very fun. And I think, as comedy writers, what we’re seeing from the early GOP debates is what you hope for: characters. We’ve got what seems like a handful of characters, so that’s a nice start for us. Let’s hope they all stay in the race.”

Emmy winner Diane Biederbeck, who won with her team for camerawork on American Idol, didn’t go up onstage with her team to get her award because she was working – as a camera operator for the Creative Awards show today.  “I was shooting the accepter’s speech, and I had his close-up,” she said.  So after the show ended, she was backstage, trying to find out where to pick up her Emmy, but the remaining ones had already been locked up.  But she was not disturbed. “They’ll send it,” she said.  “And I’d almost rather have it sent than pick it up, because when they send it, you get a nice box with it. You know, you can put it in there when you are moving or something.”

2011 Creative Arts Emmys By The Numbers;
  1. While HBO is usually outstanding, “Mildred Pierce” is overwrought and it’s winning because…HBO markets itself for awards. “Downton Abbey” (PBS) was one of the best pieces of television in years. (As one critic put it–if Downton was on HBO, it probably would have won more awards in Emmy History than any miniseries…” but sadly, it’s on PBS, which doesn’t “buy” Emmys with marketing campaigns….

  2. Why the Boardwalk hate? I agree with Brandon. Downton Abbey was so dazzling. The fact Mildred Pierce is winning “makeup” and art Direction is a joke. You could argue that it might have individual performances or possibly (if you don’t watch the performances) better casting. But not art. And not music. That’s absolutely rubbish. To me, this is HBO buying awards and voters obviously loyal to HBO for other projects simply–as always–voting in an HBO block of votes. Sad. Sad. Sad.

    1. Firing Bob Shaw as production designer of Boardwalk Empire was such a mistake on Winters part. What a disgrace. Winter may have written a fine pilot but without the incredible vision of Bob Shaw this would just be another gangster show. Shaw is a wonderful human being and great talent who didn’t deserve to be treated so badly. HBO should thank their lucky stars to have had him on this show.

  3. Remove from the set all these very creative people, who unfortunately are second-tiered and demoted via this ghetto non-publicized awards show, and let’s see what would result for those Big Name Big Winners on the other upcoming Emmy broadcast. Classic Hollywood B.S. to relegate the people who work very very hard and do great work to a lower tier so the “stars” can shine on their own special show.

  4. Robert Shaw’s speech was the best. He did brilliant work and then the mercurial and paranoid Creator/EP Terence Winter fired him.

  5. About winning for sound mixing for HOUSE. Please give more high-end EQ to the voices especially Hugh(too much monotone mumbling). Congrats…You do a good job…

  6. Congrats to all the winners. You guys are the creme of the crop (and the others ain’t to bad, neither!)

  7. @TV Queen, Mildred didn’t win makeup.

    The cast and crew of Mildred Pierce worked very, very hard and put lots of passion into the project. They deserved the majority of their nominations. I also happen to think they deserved the 3 wins they received here: art direction, music, and casting. I hate that people get upset because a ‘starry’ project wins over something smaller. The fact that something is smaller doesn’t make it more deserving of an award. People just like rooting for the underdog and assume that anything big is bought. There are people who enjoyed Mildred Pierce, you know. Get off your high horse, please.

  8. Looks like Boardwalk Empire continues to sweep for HBO (as expected), but Mildred Pierce is sharing awards with the others. Rightfully so. I’d say if Downton Abbey were with HBO, it would be winning everything! Downton Abbey was one brilliant mini-series!

  9. The Walking Dead won stuff? Good. And did ‘Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas’ from Community get something? Score!

  10. Everything nominated WAS good. That being said, Mildred Pierce is a dime a dozen show. Without hollywood stars (And unfortunatley, the emmy’s love to pretend they are the oscars) it wouldn’t even be nominated this year. I do think it had good sets and music, but I agree with TV Queen (not as good as Downton or in the same league, actually) and Dee123 you’re right. I fear academy members will immediatley reward “Mildred” for being on HBO over the superior Downton. But at least a lot of writers on blogs keep saying Downton is the show that “should have” won… that’s some consolation! (Plus, there’s another miniseries this year!)

  11. Boardwalk Empire is winning only because it spent $18 million for the pilot. All the awards in the creative arts emmy category are for the Pilot alone. So every emmy voter decided to not let them down by voting for them. Just because you’re in HBO and you spend a lot of money doesn’t mean you need to win like that. For many shows, even one emmy feels so great and deserved.

  12. I actually think tonight improved Downton Abbey’s odds of winning Outstanding Mini next week. Had Mildred Pierce performed as well as Boardwalk Empire did in the Drama categories, it would have sunk Downton’s chances for good. But Mildred only won 3 out of the 12 categories in which it was nominated. Downton didn’t sweep either (2 out of 6, Costumes and Cinematography), but at least Mildred doesn’t look as formidable as it did pre-CAE, even though it’s still very much the one to beat.

  13. I take it the Emmy voters aren’t big fans of Game of Thrones giving most of the awards it deserves to Boardwalk Empire. Special effects, art direction and casting should have went to Game of Thrones.

  14. I’m sorry, but if they’re gonna side with HBO this year, why are the overwhelmingly favoring “Boardwalk Empire” over the FAR superior “Game of Thrones”. It’s not even that great of a show. Yeah, “Mad Men” has been around for a couple years, but it’s 4th season was waaaaaay better than Boardwalk’s so-so first season. The pilot was descent, but c’mon. It’s evident the from this the voters aren’t actually WATCHING their screeners. I’m also gonna be pissed if Steve Buschemi beats Jon Hamm or Kyle Chandler for Best Actor.

    RE: Mildred vs. Downton… Mildred only won 3, to Downton’s 2. Downton was absolutely the better of the two, so perhaps there’s hope it can bring home Best Miniseries.

  15. Love Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire. Amazing shows. Congrats to the amazing Bob Shaw whose work is sublime. Is he no longer on Boardwalk Empire? What happened?

  16. I would like to add a few areas for which Mr. Walsh should be recognized. He has a large share of responsibility in the current state of the sex offender industry in America. This is the industry that has made life-long registered criminals out of children and teenagers for childish pranks, normal curiosity, and teenage romance. It is this industry that is responsible for parents being terrified every second because they have been brainwashed into believing that predators are lurking at every corner ready to snatch a child. It is this industry that has put children more at risk than ever. The children and other family members of the many thousands of low-level offenders that are required to register have their lives destroyed along with their parent. But by far the worst destruction is suffered by the hundreds of thousands of children who are still being sexually molested, often in their own homes, by family members and family acquaintances, NOT by registered sex offenders, with nothing being done to stop the cycle of sexual victimization of our children. The registry, thanks largely to Mr. Walsh, has so completely consumed all resources, leaving nothing, not even awareness, with which to combat the cause of close to 100% of child sexual molestation.
    So please be sure that Mr. Walsh is given his due recognition for all that he has accomplished, all in the name of his poor dead son who was not even the victim of a sex offender.
