Judging by the results of the Creatives Arts Emmy Awards, which took place September 14 and 15, the night will not be dark and full of terrors for Game of Thrones at the Primetime Emmys, no matter how polarizing Season 8 may have been. In addition to winning as an executive producer he also won for outstanding writing for a nonfiction program. On Sunday, best cast in a comedy was awarded to Amazon's "Fleabag", which appears to be in a dead heat in the best program comedy category against the three-time victor "Veep" and last year's victor, "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel".

The Simpsons won the Emmy for best animated series, while gay makeover series Queer Eye took home four awards.

Winners in the more than 45 other categories were handed out on Saturday in the first part of the two-night Creative Arts ceremony.

The documentary, directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, also won the award for outstanding creative achievement in interactive media within an unscripted program.

The Creative Arts Emmys celebrate things like guest acting, animation, and categories related to things like score, cinematography and production design - so it's no surprise to see Thrones do so well last night.

James Corden's Carpool Karaoke special with former Beatle Paul McCartney returning to his Liverpool hometown won over Homecoming for pre-recorded variety special, while the filmed version of Bruce Springsteen's acclaimed one-man Broadway show triumphed for variety special directing.

The CNN travel series took home a win for outstanding informational series or special on Saturday, while Bourdain himself won the outstanding writing for a nonfiction program for writing the episode titled "Kenya".

Outstanding Main Title Design: Game of Thrones' always impressive opening sequence became especially helpful in Season 8 as it reflected the many changes in Westeros week to week, even as the dizzying pacing threw us all for a loop.

Netflix was the top victor among networks and streaming services with 15. HBO notched 25 Creative Arts wins over the weekend compared to Netflix's 23. Guest actor in a drama series was presented to Bradley Whitford for The Handmaid's Tale, which also won for guest actress Cherry Jones.

RuPaul won for host of a reality or competition program for the fourth consecutive year.
