Creative Arts Emmys 2022 – ‘The Beatles: Get Back’ and ‘Adele: One Night Only’ Win Big

·5-min read

Emmy voters were moved by music, handing out five awards apiece to “The Beatles: Get Back” and “Adele: One Night Only” at Saturday’s portion of the two-night Creative Arts Emmys.

The music of “The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show” was also a big winner, with three awards, including Music Direction for Adam Blackstone.

In the reality TV world, “Love on the Spectrum U.S.,” the Netflix series that follows people on the autism spectrum as they navigate the world of dating and relationships, snagged three Emmys, including ones for casting, picture editing and unstructured reality program. And, RuPaul Charles won his seventh Emmy — in a row — for hosting “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

The 2022 Creative Arts Emmys: Night 1, which was held at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown, Los Angeles (where it was a scorching 105 degrees outside), honored outstanding artistic and technical achievement in various television program genres, guest performances and exceptional work in the animation, reality and documentary categories.

This year’s show is a two-night affair, following the template set in 2021. The year prior, however, was spread out across five ceremonies/nights to honor the below-the-line workers in Hollywood.

For those who want to watch this year’s Creative Arts Emmys, they’ll have to wait until next weekend. An edited version of the two shows will air Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX. The 74th annual Primetime Emmys air the following night at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC. It will also stream live for the first time on Peacock.
