Harry Shearer finally won a voice-over Emmy for The Simpsons, but an Emmy statuette continued to elude CW at tonight’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, despite the networks first-ever two noms. HBO once again won the most trophies, 15, followed by NBC (10) and PBS (8). Half of NBC’s wins came for veteran Saturday Night Live, which topped the list of programs with 5 Emmys.  Seth MacFarlane’s passion project Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey kept company with hot True Detective,  Game of Thrones,  and Sherlock: His Last Vow in the 4 Emmy Wins club.  Joe Morton (Scandal), Allison Janney (Masters of Sex), Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black) and Jimmy Fallon (SNL); all won guest-star Emmys, while Shark Tank and The Deadliest Catch bagged the reality wins, and Jane Lynch (Hollywood Game Night) won an Emmy for her debut as a reality series host.

Big victory tonight: producers squeezed tonight’s orgy of statuette dispensing — swelled to 80 categories from last year’s 75 — into 3.5 hours. The ceremony ended by 7:30 PM, as Emmy organizers had advised media before tonight’s ceremony began. Pitching in to this herculean effort — a number of big-ticket winners were no-shows, meaning no acceptance speeches.

Here is Deadline’s running account of tonight’s ceremony as it happened, with reporting from Diane Haithman and Anthony D’Alessandro  who were at the scene at the Nokia Theater.

I'm amazed that DWTS won for camera operators. I've never seen such a sloppy show before. Shakey...

All the Emmy love for SNL validates the show, which has been a train wreck for years....

3:40 PM:  Blistering heat made for a thin-ish Red Carpet, despite umbrellas set up to to create some shade; lots of A-listers took the fast lane in order to get into the Nokia Theater ASAP.  Matthew Weiner, asked about last year’s 45 Second Acceptance Speech Rule, said,  “I personally could use less time, because I’m not great at it.  But… when I see someone who has been working in show business for so long, such as Bob Newhart who has been working in comedy for 50 years, I think they should give him more time in his acceptance speech.” Which, to refresh everyone’s memory, is exactly what happened last year — the 45 Sec Rule was not enforced when Newhart won his first Emmy for guest starring on The Big Bang Theory.

Warren Littlefield, whose FX miniseries Fargo is up for 18 noms, said enthusiastically of tonight’s ceremony,  “We already won. We made something that we were wildly in love with. Then MGM and FX were in love with it. Critics asked, ‘Why would you remake the iconic film Fargo? Why would you touch that for television?’  — and then when we showed it to them, they said ‘Oh, my god, we love it.’ Then the audience fell in love, so we’ve satisfied ourselves, we satisfied all the people that matter, and we have 18 Emmy nominations. We are walking in here winners.” (Fargo would go on to win one trophy tonight.)

Asked if he thought broadcast programs should have to compete with cable at the Emmys – a hot-button issue this season —  the former NBC programming chief acknowledged, “That’s the elephant in the room. I honestly don’t know. I look at Game of Thrones and they probably average three times the budget we get. I look at network shows that have a lot more money than we have. Then I see that we compete with them, and that’s OK.” Not having to cater to advertisers gives premium cable networks’ programs a huge advantage as to what they can do with content. Then there’s those FCC restrictions on broadcast programs. “When a judge of panelists says, ‘What did I really fall in love with?’ — it’s when creators have no restrictions. And, let’s face it: You get more creative freedom in cable,” he said.

4:02 PM: Last year, to try to get it done in a reasonable time, Creative Arts Emmys producer Spike Jones Jr. appeared onstage before show time to urge winners to keep it short, announcing a 45-seconds limit from the moment the winner’s name is announced. It caused quite a stir — and not in a good way, as winners had to race down the aisle and leap up on stage to gasp out a 10-seconds worth of acceptance speech. This year’s bad news: “After 30 seconds we will start our special Emmy play-off music,” attendees were told before the ceremony started. Matthew Weiner and Vince Gilligan, first presenters, welcomed them to the awards ceremony tonight “And when I say tonight I mean the next 8 to 10 hours,” Weiner joked but not really.

Exclaimed Walsh, “Directors, stop excusing all your mistakes with ‘Oh, we’ll fix it in post.’ And, editors hate the question ‘Can you make it good?’ Here’s a thought – how about making it good on set. Is that too much to ask?”

4:38PM: Amy Schumer, presenting the Emmys in animation derbies,  brought some edge to the ceremony, saying “when I was first asked to present tonight, I was so humbled because half way through the call I realized they thought they were talking to Chelsea Handler.” She said she’s in awe that in Hollywood, a “girl like me – Size 6” can still be cast “as a woman getting gastric bypass surgery…or Gilbert Grape’s mom.”  Schumer joked about the fact that the Emmy for Individual Achievement in Animation is a juried award but the winner will take the stage anyway because “like all of us narcissists, they still want to talk.”

Janney thanked the crew for getting her that shot of bourbon before her first sex scene. Backstage, Janney, previously a four-time winner for The West Wing, called being in both Masters of Sex and her comedy Mom “a great year.”  She said that her winning role tonight, Margaret Scully, “challenged me in ways that I’ve never been challenged before — especially the sex scenes.  The sex scenes were extraordinarily difficult for me and something I didn’t think I’d have to do at this age.”  The actress admitted its was “devastating” when The West Wing ended.

5:23PM: Before announcing wins in various sound mixing categories, Key And Peele’s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordon Peele did one of their trademark cross-talk acts – this time, Key waxed eloquent about the power of television to inspire, singling out Saturday Night Live and Eddie Murphy for inspiring his own career, while Peele complained they aren’t being paid a nickel and the producers sent an Uber car to pick them up, whose driver is “a hipster from Silver Lake” who “asked me for a five-star rating,” adding, “I’m doing his podcast on Thursday.”

5:43PM: Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein of Portlandia said they were supposed to be joined by former First Lady Roselyn Carter in presenting Emmy wins for music competitions, but regret to inform attendees she could not be there. “She sends her regards and wants you to know she’s just really swamped right now,” Brownstein said.

“Music. Everybody hate it. And music is hard,” Armisen, a musician and Late Night bandleader, continued. Brownstein agreed, noting the movie Moulin Rouge had been nominated for multiple awards back in its day, “but tonight, nothing – zero.” Then Armisen gave out his phone number and Brownstein her email address.

No, we cannot explain it.

5:55PM: Community’s Joel McHale and Jim Rash, on stage to present Emmys in camerawork and lighting design categories, said their being on stage can only mean one thing: “This show has been cancelled” and then renewed on an internet streaming network. Jim Rash wanted to sing: “Oh TV, What have you got on all your channels? What’s on them tonight?”

“You just stabbed these people with sharpened screwdrivers in their ears,” McHale said, accurately.

Governor’s Award: Marion Dougherty C.S.A.,
Jon Voight reflected on his late supporter who discovered him and ultimately championed him for the feature film Midnight Cowboy: After about 90 breakneck minutes of awards dispensing, stage dashing and speech giving, Jon Voight took his time presenting the Governor’s Award to late casting director Marion Dougherty.  The Emmy-nominated actor told a rambling tale of how Dougherty gave him his first part in Naked City, but as an inexperienced young actor he used up all his emotion on the long shots so had nothing left for the close-ups. Then, he said, he wrote several apologetic letters to Dougherty for blowing the part. But he never sent them. Years later, when he found out Dougherty was the casting agent for Midnight Cowboy, Voight used his last dollars to take a red-eye to New York, hoping she would see him. He ran into her in her office and told her about the letters of apology he never mailed.  “I wish you’d mailed that letter,” she said. Then she introduced Voight to director John Schlesinger. “That was to become the turning point of my career,” Voight said.

Fallon was a no show.  “Fallon was unable to be here tonight, cause he was arrested,” Joel McHale joked. “But we are happy to accept this award and will keep it forever. Haha.”

It’s an important series in my life and the world’s life,” he said, adding, “It’s my first time out with Showtime — HBO was not happy about that. They’ll figure it out.” He called fellow producer Arnold Schwarzenegger a great governor “who did a lot of great things.”

Always a highlight of any Emmy night in which it falls: the best Variety Series Writing category. This year, the nominee clips included The Daily Show‘s reading of its writers’ names using George W. Bush portraits,  while Amy Schumer’s late-night show went with doctored American Apparel ads, and Tonight Show had Brian Williams rap its writers’ names. The soon-to-be-ended The Colbert Report won.
