The 67th annual Tony Awards garnered two Creative Arts Emmy Awards on August 16. The 2013 ceremony received the Emmy for Special Class Program, and Tom Kitt and Lin-Manuel Miranda took home trophies for their opening number, “Bigger!”, performed by host Neil Patrick Harris and cast members from pretty much every show on Broadway at the time. (Miranda is now an Oscar away from joining the exclusive EGOT club.) Broadway alum and Orange is the New Black favorite Uzo Aduba also won for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
Additional Creative Arts Emmy recipients included Tony nominees Joe Morton and Allison Janney for their guest appearances on Scandal and Masters of Sex, respectively, the HBO film adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart for Makeup for a Miniseries or Movie and The Sound of Music Live! for Technical Direction, Camerwork, Video Control for a Miniseries, Movie or Special.
The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Monday, August 25 on NBC. Seth Meyers will host. Nominees include Tony winners Bryan Cranston, Kevin Spacey, Christine Baranski, Mandy Patinkin, Cicely Tyson, Ellen Burstyn, Maggie Smith and Joe Mantello.
