HBO’s “Game of Thrones” was the big winner at last night’s Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards with six, but two of the horror crowd’s favorites also took home one Emmy each.
As most of us suspected, Greg Nicotero and KNB EFX Group won for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Miniseries, Movie Or A Special (because, really, does anyone do zombies better than Greg?):
“What Lies Ahead” • AMC • AMC Studios
Greg Nicotero, Special Makeup Effects Department Head
Jake Garber, Special Makeup Effects Artist
Andy Schoneberg, Special Makeup Effects Artist
Kevin Wasner, Special Makeup Effects Artist
Gino Crognale, Special Makeup Effects Artist
Carey Jonse, Special Makeup Effects Artist
Garrett Immel, Prosthetic Designer
And on the opposite end of the spectrum, for mostly making people look good, the hairstyling team from “American Horror Story” won for Outstanding Hairstyling For A Miniseries Or Movie:
FX Networks • Twentieth Century Fox Television
Monte C. Haught, Department Head Hairstylist
Samantha Wade, Key Hairstylist
Melanie Verkins, Hairstylist
Natalie Driscoll, Hairstylist
Michelle Ceglia, Hairstylist
A hearty congratulations to all of the above individuals as well as to “Game of Thrones,” which won for art direction, special visual effects, sound mixing, sound editing, makeup (non-prosthetic), and costumes.
