    'Stranger Things' and 'Westworld' each picked up five awards at Creative Arts Emmy Awards

    The Netflix series picked up the coveted Drama Series Casting accolade, which is often seen as an indicator of a likely strong performance at the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards as well as Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series, Main Title Design, Sound Editing for a Series, Original Main Title Theme Music.


    Meanwhile, HBO's 'Westworld' won for visual effects, hairstyling, make-up, sound mixing, and interactive programming, while the network's 'The Night Of' followed close behind with four prizes in the cinematography, sound mixing, sound editing, and editing mini-series categories.

    'Saturday Night Live' added to the three wins it had achieved at the first part of the prize giving on Saturday (09.09.17), taking another two prizes for Guest Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday.

    Dave Chappelle scored his first Emmy for hosting the long-running sketch show, in a controversial episode that marked the first episode after Donald Trump won the US presidential election, while Melissa McCarthy's popular portrayal of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer led her to victory.

    'The Handmaid's Tale's Alexis Bledel and Gerald McRaney from 'This Is Us' scored them the Guest Actress and Actor in a Drama Series prizes, while 'Big Little Lies' scooped the Casting for a Limited Series accolade, as well as the first-ever Music Supervision award, and Contemporary Costumes.
