With eight wins, HBO’s “The Last of Us” was by far the favorite. Four awards were given to FX’s “The Bear,” Netflix’s “Wednesday,” and HBO’s “The White Lotus.” On the first night of the two-night Creative Arts Awards, Netflix’s “Beef” brought home three medals at the Peacock Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Guest actor and actress in a drama series for Nick Offerman and Storm Reid were among the “Last of Us” winners. Visual effects, picture editing, sound editing, and other key craft categories were also awarded to the series.

“Poker Face” star Judith Light won the award for guest actress in a comedy, while “Ted Lasso” fave Sam Richardson won the award for guest actor in a comedy.

Roku Channel defeated more known competitors to win the TV movie award with “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.” Yankovic was on hand to accept the trophy, echoing other winners’ views about the significance of accepting one’s genuine self.

“Live the life you desire.” Be as eccentric as you wish. “Believe me, you will never find true happiness until you truly accept who you are,” Yankovic stated as the “Weird” team won the night’s final award.

Last year’s Hollywood labor unrest caused a three-month delay in the Emmy Award season.

“Daisy Jones & the Six” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” from Amazon Prime Video both took home two awards. For period attire, “Daisy Jones” reigned supreme. Backstage, costume designer Denise Wingate called the series “a gift” and mentioned that she grew up in Los Angeles in the 1970s, so she was extremely familiar with the show’s setting. “At a young age, I was sneaking into clubs with a fake ID.” So I felt like this was the first project where I knew I could be real,” she explained.

Casting for a limited or anthology series was one of the “Beef” victories. “Beef” casting director Charlene Lee specifically mentioned episode eight, which forced them to audition multiple actors playing the same roles at different ages. “It was a puzzle to put that together, and that was a fun search.” Lee went on to say. “It was rewarding to find each piece because it was a hard episode.”

The Creative Arts Emmys winners were emotional as usual, considering the importance of an Emmy victory for the careers of craft and technical professionals.

“Oh my god, this is crazy,” John Koyama exclaimed as he won the award for stunt coordination for Prime Video’s “The Boys.” Much later in the three-hour presentation, cinematographer Natalie Kingston, who won for the limited series Apple TV+’s “Black Bird,” told the audience, “My 12-year-old self would be freaking out running around with a camcorder.”

The jury winners included HBO and Max’s “We’re Here,” Disney Plus’ “Ms. Marvel,” and ABC’s “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration,” as previously revealed.

The following is a continuous list of winners from the first night of the 2023 Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
