Behind the TV Shows’ Big Successes: 2010 Creative Arts Emmy’s

The biggest, most anticipated awarding ceremony of the year for TV is coming up in one week, but before the main Primetime Emmy Awards 2010 shower today’s hottest TV shows and stars with golden trophies to add to their display cases in their living rooms, Emmy’s wave of intensity and excitement directs its spotlight first to the recognition of the efforts of the behind-the-scenes and guest stars as well as some other categories that are considered less controversial than the primetime with the 2010 Creative Arts Emmy’s.

Hundreds of hopeful nominees walked (or missed) the red carpet but only 67 winners were declared at the Nokia Theatre Los Angeles – so who brought home mini golden statues last Saturday? The list follows shortly, but the biggest win went to HBO’s The Pacific as the miniseries about World War II racked up 7 wins, but HBO’s got more to celebrate than that because all in all, the television network garnered a total of 17 Emmy’s! Now, that’s really something!
