Netflix’s “Making a Murderer,” Fox’s “Grease Live,” FXX’s “Archer” and ABC’s “Shark Tank” were among the top winners Sunday as the second half of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards were handed out at the Microsoft Theater.
Director Liz Garbus noted backstage that the singer’s daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, once told her mother “I have your back” when it comes to how history would remember her.
“She felt like she kept her promise” with the documentary, Garbus said.
Adult Swim’s “Children’s Hospital” wrapped its final season on a high note with two wins for short form comedy or drama series and for star Rob Corddry.
“Murderer” collected victories early on in the ceremony: documentary or nonfiction series and writing, directing and editing for a nonfiction program.
“Murderer” filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos thanked the families of those involved in the case detailed in the 10-hour series.
“Grease Live” grabbed the special class program award as well as lighting, production design and technical direction honors.
