'Boardwalk Empire' wins 7 at Creative Arts Emmys

The Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 18, but for now we're focusing on the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys, which were handed out over the weekend in L.A.

HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" walked away from the ceremony with seven awards, including Emmys for outstanding casting, outstanding makeup for a single camera series (non prosthetic) and outstanding art direction for a single camera series.  (HBO is owned by CNN's parent company.)

Gwyneth Paltrow's frequent stops by "Glee" weren't in vain, either: The "Contagion" actress picked up an outstanding guest actress in a comedy series Emmy for her portrayal of substitute teacher Holly Holliday. "Glee" also won the award for outstanding casting for a comedy series.

Loretta Devine took the Emmy in the drama guest actress category for her role as Chief Webber's wife Adele on "Grey's Anatomy."

Justin Timberlake may not care if the world takes him seriously, but the Emmy voters clearly did.  He was awarded two: One for guest hosting "Saturday Night Live" and another for co-writing the lyrics to his "SNL" monologue's song.

"Futurama" picked up the outstanding animated program Emmy, as well as another Emmy for outstanding voice-over performance (handed to Maurice LaMarche, who portrayed Lrrr and Orson Welles in the episode "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences").

Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" was awarded the outstanding cinematography for nonfiction programming Emmy for the "Haiti" episode, while "Deadliest Catch" - which took home four Emmys overall - received the outstanding reality program award and outstanding cinematography for reality programming award for "Redemption Day." "Survivor's" Jeff Probst was the winner in the outstanding host for a reality or reality competition program category.
