That’s a wrap on all three of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards shows, so let the music play!

“RuPaul’s Drag Race,” the reality competition series which is hosted by drag queen RuPaul Charles, won big with five Emmys in several categories, including Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program and Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program (which is RuPaul’s sixth straight Emmy win for the category).

Also, to further the franchise’s stardom, “RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked,” a behind-the-scenes spinoff of the reality series, won the unstructured reality category for the first time.

None of this weekend’s three Creative Arts shows were televised. Next Saturday, a highlights show of sorts will air on FXX starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

It’s checkmate on the first of three 2021 Creative Arts Emmy Awards shows, and Saturday was a huge evening for “The Queen’s Gambit.” The excellent Netflix limited series led by Anya Taylor-Joy has already won seven 2021 Emmys, technically (and in mostly technical categories).

Sunday’s first show began at 1 p.m. PT. The second Sunday show, the final one of the two-day 2021 Creative Arts Emmys, begins at 5 p.m. PT. That’s the presentation that has most of the mainstream categories that don’t fit in next week’s Primetime Emmys.

None of the three Creative Arts Emmys shows are being televised live. Next Saturday, a highlights show of sorts will air on FXX starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
