"Leaving Neverland", "Queer Eye" among 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Award winners

39;Game of Thrones' leading the way in Emmy nominations

Judging by the results of the Creatives Arts Emmy Awards, which took place September 14 and 15, the night will not be dark and full of terrors for Game of Thrones at the Primetime Emmys, no matter how polarizing Season 8 may have been.

The traveling food series was nominated for a total of six Emmys; Bourdain won the two he was eligible for, in the Outstanding Informational Series or Special and Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program categories. "Queer Eye" won four awards.

Almost 100 categories were presented over two ceremonies on Saturday and Sunday, majority for technical achievement, as well as guest acting honours and others not considered viewer-friendly enough for the live telecast of the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards on September 22.

The programme, which aired earlier this year, 10 years after Jackson's death, was met with outrage by his family and brought fresh scrutiny to the Thriller singer's legacy.

HBO's limited series, "Chernobyl", about the 1986 nuclear reactor disaster, also had a strong night on Sunday, earning seven Creative Arts Emmys. It was the sixth series win for VFX supervisor Joe Bauer while VFX producer Steve Kullback and VFX associate producer Adam Chazen - who have been with the series since season one - now have seven Emmys each for the HBO fantasy series.

"Game of Thrones" has won more Emmys than any other drama in the history of television.

General Motors strike could have local impact
If the sale happens, Lordstown Motors officials have told local officials they want production to begin as early as late 2020. On Sunday, about 200 plant-level leaders voted unanimously to strike against GM if no deal could be reached by Sunday night.

The show won in the Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category, whilst the two leads both won in the acting categories. The show won for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for Luke Kirby as Lenny Bruce, Outstanding Period Costumes and Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series for Jane Lynch's portrayal of Sophie Lennon, among others.

Netflix topped among the networks with 15 wins.

The Handmaid's Tale excelled itself too this Sunday by taking home awards in both drama guest categories-which was the limit of its eligibility anyway, given it was reduced to submitting episodes from a year ago under "hanging episodes" rule.

- Host for a reality or competition program: RuPaul, "RuPaul's Drag Race".

The Emmys will be broadcast live Sunday on Fox on at 8 p.m. ET.
