The 69th edition of the Emmy Awards, which takes place on September 17 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, will celebrate the top TV programs from 32 categories. This year, Stranger Things and Westworld each won five Creative Arts Emmys, which may signal an overall fondness for both shows among voters that could translate into further victories down the line at the Primetime Emmys, where both shows are nominated in the Best Drama category.

Deadline reports that after accepting the award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special, DuVernay used the moment to talk about amplifying unheard stories. Those were followed by four awards for limited series The Night Of, which earned nods for cinematography, sound mixing, costumes and single-camera picture editing.

Dave Chappelle won guest actor in a comedy for his November 12 Saturday Night Live hosting gig. The long-running sketch comedy nabbed the awards of Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for Dave Chappelle and Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Melissa McCarthy.

Alexis Bledel wins the guest drama actress for her work in Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale". So is the show looking even stronger to win Best Comedy Series?

DuVernay said making 13th was "a lovely process" and also "an emotional process to steep yourself in". "Mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, who don't know where their loved one is".

"I wanted to go to Broadway before I won any awards".

Just after walking the red carpet with Hayley at the 2017 Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend, and dipping her for a kiss, the Emmy nominee headed to Instagram to rave about his love for the DWTS troupe dancer. NBC's Hairspray Live! took home three awards, in categories celebrating Outstanding Hairstyling (duh), Outstanding Technical Direction and Outstanding Production Design (Tony victor Derek McLane was among the winners on this team). It was back in 2015, that he won an Oscar alongside singer-songwriter John Legend for Best Original Song for "Glory", the powerful anthem that come with "Selma" the Martin luther King Jr. biopic also directed by DuVernay.
