Creative Arts Emmys: The British Winners

The Creative Arts Emmys were handed out in an untelevised ceremony this weekend. Which shows and stars from across the Atlantic snatched some gold this time around?

The BBC saw several wins, including two for the U.S. production of Dancing with the Stars. The ABC dance-competition series won for Outstanding Hairstyling For A Multi-Camera Series Or Special and Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, and Video Control For A Series.

Return To Cranford, the sequel to the Emmy-winning miniseries with Dame Judi Dench, won Outstanding Cinematography For A Miniseries Or Movie and Outstanding Costumes For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special.

In news that will be received with a hearty “Duh!,” the gloriously shot Life won Outstanding Cinematography For Nonfiction Programming.

Emma, BBC’s Masterpiece Theater production with Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller, took home the Outstanding Hairstyling For A Miniseries Or A Movie award. Check out some of the coifs on display in this clip:

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, which is produced by Ryan Seacrest‘s production company, received the award for Outstanding Reality Program. Note: this is different from the Outstanding Reality-Competition Program category, which has been won by The Amazing Race for the past seven years.

The Primetime Emmy televised ceremony will be held this Sunday. Take a gander at some of the other Brit nominees.
