While we were all getting our Pride on Sunday, in Hollywood, the gays were dressed up (sans Speedos) to attend the creative arts Emmy Awards ceremony — the precursor to next Sunday’s primetime ceremony. And if these awards (for design, casting, guest actors and such) are any indication, the gays have some mo(mentum) headed into the big game.
Among the big winners were Project Runway‘s Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn (co-winners for best reality show host) and Behind the Candelabra, the HBO film about Liberace, which won a staggering eight awards (casting, costumes, art direction, hairstyling, editing, sound mixing, prosthetic makeup and non-prosthetic makeup). It’s still up for six more next week, including two for best actor, best miniseries/movie and best director.
Other gay interest winners: Gay actor Dan Buchatinsky, who won best best actor in a drama for Scandal; American Horror Story: Asylum (for sound editing); Lily Tomlin’s narration of An Apology to Elephants (for best voice-over performance); and “IF I Had Time,” Neil Patrick Harris’ closing song at the 2012 Tony Awards (for best song).
