A number of the music industry’s biggest names took home some prizes over the weekend. No, you didn’t miss some big music awards show. Instead, the likes of Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Eminem won Creative Arts Emmy Awards for their recent work on various television projects.
Timberlake took home two Emmys: one for guest-hosting “Saturday Night Live” and another for co-writing the lyrics to his monologue song from the show, according to The New York Times. Timberlake previously won four Emmys for his work on the hit sketch comedy show.
Gwyneth Paltrow took home an Emmy for her guest-starring role on “Glee.” The Chrysler 200 commercial starring Eminem also took home an Emmy, according to Allhiphop.com. The commercial, titled “Born of Fire,” features the Detroit-born rapper driving through his hometown while his track “Lose Yourself” plays in the background.
“We were very surprised,” Aaron Allen, the creative director at Wieden + Kennedy, the ad agency that created the commercial, said. “We really wanted to win but wondered if humor would win instead.”
HBO’s drama “Boardwalk Empire” was the big winner at Saturday night’s Emmy ceremony. The show took home seven awards including art direction, editing, sound editing and visual effects.
HBO also took home awards for “Mildred Pierce,” the Lady Gaga Monster Ball concert special that aired earlier this year and the children’s program called “A Child’s Garden of Poetry.”
The Creative Arts Emmy show will air on the ReelzChannel on Saturday. The prime-time Emmys will take place Sunday in Los Angeles.
