The Television Academy presented the 68th Annual Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend, where Time Warner’s divisions received 33 awards (with HBO again leading among all networks with 16).  HBO demonstrated its broad range of breakthrough programming with wins across dramatic, variety and reality series categories.

Additionally, Turner brought in 10 awards from its portfolio of leading brands such as CNN and Adult Swim. Warner Bros., the top producer for broadcast television, earned seven for shows such as The Big Bang Theory and The Voice.

Among the highlights:

  • Game of Thrones continued to lead the way with nine wins, and with 35 trophies to-date is now the winningest TV drama of all time. 
  • Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital got a big sendoff for its final season, with wins for Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series and Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series awarded to Rob Corddry. 
  • Last Week Tonight with John Oliver took home two Emmys, including its first for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series.
  • For the fourth year in a row, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was crowned Outstanding Informational Series or Special.

Congratulations to all the winners, and be sure to tune into ABC next Sunday, September 18 to see who takes home the gold at the 68th Annual Emmy Awards
