    'Game of Thrones' dominated the second night of the Creative Arts Emmys

    The HBO fantasy series picked up 10 awards in craft and technical categories at the ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, winning awards for visual effects, non-prosthetic make-up, main title design and drama series casting.

    'Game of Thrones' was feted for its eighth and final season during the second night of the annual awards ceremony.

    Other big winners included HBO's limited series 'Chernobyl', which picked up seven awards in total, including cinematography, sound, music and video editing.

    'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' also had seven wins in total, including Outstanding Guest Actress and Actor for Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby.

    Bradley Whitford made history on the night as he became the first person to win an Emmy in both the comedy and drama guest categories.

    The actor previously won for 'Transparent' in 2015 and picked up the drama award for his work on 'The Handmaid's Tale' on Sunday.

    He joked: "Awards show are not arenas of justice. We know that because the 'hot priest' [Fleabag's Andrew Scott] did not get nominated. They are conspiracies of circumstance and my circumstances are so lucky."

    He went on to praise the show, adding: "I get to look into Lizzie [Elisabeth] Moss' eyes. She's getting to perform what I think is the voice of a generation. It's like Sophie's Choice the series... I want to thank Margaret Atwood with giving us perspective... action is the antidote to despair."
