The 74th annual Creative Arts Emmys took place over two evenings on Saturday 3 September and Sunday 4 September.
The awards honour artistic and technical achievement as well as reality, documentary and animation series. Barack Obama became the second United States president to win an Emmy. Obama won the award in the Outstanding Narrator category for Netflix’s Our Great National Parks. The Primetime Emmy Awards are set to take place on Monday 12 September.
WHO WON BIG AT THE CREATIVE ARTS EMMYS? Adele marked her first-ever Emmy win after winning the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special Award. The win means the Easy On Me hitmaker is one Tony Award away from EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) status.
Former US president Brack Obama beat out the likes of David Attenborough and Lupita Nyong’o to win the Outstanding Narrator Award for Our Great National Parks.
Taking to Instagram on 4 September to celebrate the win, Obama reflected on visiting the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. “Climate change is having an impact all around the world, including in Yellowstone National Park, which was recently devastated by wildfires,” wrote Obama.
“National Wildlife Day should be an urgent reminder for all of us to do our part to protect our wildlife and environment.”
