Night 4 of the Creative Arts Emmys was headlined by Quibi winning prizes at TV’s top awards. The short-form content producer went home with two statuettes on Thursday night, both of which went to actors from the series #FreeRayshawn. Maya Rudolph won her first Emmy for voicing Connie the Hormone Monstress on Netflix’s Big Mouth. She could potentially pick up another come Sunday, as she is nominated for both Saturday Night Live and The Good Place in the guest actress in a comedy category.
With a leading 26 Emmy nominations this year, HBO’s Watchmen is certainly a juggernaut when it comes to the Creative Arts Emmys and Sunday’s Primetime Emmys ceremony. On the third night of the Creative Arts ceremony Wednesday, Damon Lindelof’s alternate-universe adaptation of the critically acclaimed graphic novel took home four trophies, which may be just the start for the sci-fi drama starring starring Regina King.
The second of this week’s virtual Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies Tuesday focused on the Variety genre, with top honors including fourth consecutive wins for two series and a director. NBC’s Saturday Night Live won its fourth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and SNL‘s Don Roy King won his fourth consecutive Emmy for directing.

The awards are being handed out over five nights this week in ceremonies hosted by Nicole Byer.
