While most spend Labor Day weekend desperately squeezing one last drop of summer out of the calendar, it’s go time for the Television Academy. The Creative Arts Emmys are a two-night affair honoring the best in American prime-time television from categories that are not always top of mind but still fun to follow. Will Barack Obama win outstanding narrator for his work on Our Great National Parks, or will David Attenborough’s work on The Mating Game play spoiler? There are also the guest-actor categories at hand, promising potential acceptance speeches from Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, and more. 

The first night of the ceremonies, held at Los Angeles’s Microsoft Theater, kicks off at 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 3, and runs until 7:15 p.m. Then everyone catches their breath (or attends the Governors Gala in a plaza beside the Los Angeles Convention Center) and prepares to do it all over again on Sunday. The ceremonies will be edited and televised on FXX on Saturday, September 10, at 8 p.m. The broadcast will be available on Hulu the following day. The main 2022 Emmy ceremony, hosted by Kenan Thompson, will be broadcast live on Monday, September 12. You can catch up on the full list of 2022 Emmy nominations before the big event. 

Presenters at this year’s Creative Arts Emmys include W. Kamau Bell, Colman Domingo, Marcia Gay Harden, Randy Rainbow, Judd Apatow, and RuPaul. 

Leading the nominations in Creative Arts categories are Succession and Euphoria, tied at 13; Hacks and Stranger Things, tied at 12; Only Murders in the Building at 11; and Ted Lasso at 10.

There are approximately 400,000 awards to hand out, so let’s get down to it, shall we? As winners are announced they will be moved to the top of each category’s nominees and highlighted in triumphant bold.
