The final night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards aired on Saturday, September 19, and viewers streamed it live on FXX. There were a few mistakes due to the virtual nature of the show – namely the screen reading the award winner for guest actor in a drama was Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) while the voice over said it was Jason Bateman (The Outsider). However, here is the final list of winners from the night.
