Creative Arts Emmys: “The Night Of”, “Stranger Things” & “Westworld” Lead The Pack

In an Emmy race with surprisingly strong competition, the Creative Arts Emmys saw HBO’s “The Night Of” and “Westworld”, along with Netflix’s hit “Stranger Things” rise above the rest to take home numerous awards.

With lots of stiff competition this year, it was interesting to see the popular “Stranger Things” take so many awards, along with HBO’s hit mini-series “The Night Of”, not just for acting but technical disciplines as well. It will be interesting to see how this translates to the Primetime Emmy Awards next Sunday, September 17th.
