Game Of Thrones, Kathy Bates, win early Emmys

 
 

LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Medieval fantasy Game Of Thrones lead the winners at the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday in a ceremony that also honoured Kathy Bates for channelling Charlie Sheen on Two And A Half Men but shut out Emmy darling Mad Men.

On a night that rewarded guest actors, choreographers, musicians and editors of the year's leading TV shows, Game Of Thrones on HBO won six awards, including costumes, make-up and special visual effects.

Sketch show Saturday Night Live took home four - including a best guest actor trophy for comedian Jimmy Fallon as host - tying for second place with the Charles Dickens drama Great Expectations on PBS and Discovery Channel's nature documentary Frozen Planet.

Bates, 64, was a popular winner for her guest actress turn as Charlie Sheen's killed-off bad boy Charlie Harper in CBS comedy Two And A Half Men.
