Televisions biggest and brightest stars came to Downtown Los Angeles this weekend for the 2010 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards! The ceremony was held at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Saturday, August 21st.

The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards are dedicated to key technical disciplines and behind-the-scenes crafts essential to television production - including art direction, cinematography, hairstyling, makeup, music, picture editing, sound editing and mixing, special visual effects, stunts and more.

HBO and ABC were the most honored networks with 17 and 15 wins, respectively. On the acting side, Betty White won for her much-publicized guest hosting gig on Saturday Night Live in May.
