She also won a Tony and a Grammy for that show and its cast album.

Erivo would be the fourth actress to win in this category in the 2000s for playing a real-life entertainer.

4. Will Leslie Odom Jr. beat Lin Manuel-Miranda at the Emmys, as he did at the Tonys, for their leading roles in Hamilton?

Odom won a Tony for best performance by lead actor in a musical five years ago for his role as Aaron Burr in Hamilton, beating out Lin-Manuel Miranda, who played the title role. The actors are competing again, this time for outstanding lead actor in a limited or anthology series or movie for their performances in the Disney+ filmed version of the theatrical blockbuster. This would be Odom’s first Emmy, following his Tony and Grammy wins for Hamilton. Miranda has already won all three of those awards and is just waiting on an Oscar to become an EGOT.

Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry, who won Tonys for their featured roles in Hamilton, are also nominated for Emmys in supporting categories.

'SNL' hosts Rudolph, Chappelle win guest actor Emmy honors

  'SNL' hosts Rudolph, Chappelle win guest actor Emmy honors LOS ANGELES (AP) — Claire Foy, Courtney B. Vance, Maya Rudolph and Dave Chappelle won guest actor Emmys at Sunday's creative arts awards ceremony. On the drama series side, Foy was honored for “The Crown" and her reprisal of Queen Elizabeth II, the role that won her a lead actress Emmy in 2018. Vance won for his role in “Lovecraft Country," which was canceled after one season. Rudolph and Chappelle won comedy series guest acting trophies as hosts of “Saturday Night Live.” For Rudolph, it was a repeat of her victory in the category last year, also for “SNL.” In the short-form comedy or drama series, the winners were J.B.

6. Will Ted Lasso make Emmy history?

Ted Lasso won three Creative Arts Emmys and is nominated in six categories on Sunday, including outstanding comedy series. If it wins them all, upping its total for the season to nine, the series will tie two major Emmy records – most Emmys won by a comedy series in single season (Schitt’s Creek set the mark just last year) and most Emmys won by a series in its first season (The West Wing set the mark in 2000). If Lasso falls short in one category and winds up with eight Emmys, it would still tie The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2018) for the most Emmys won by a comedy in its first season.

7. Will Last Week Tonight With John Oliver win outstanding variety (talk) series for the sixth year?

That would put the HBO series in a tie with Late Show With David Letterman (CBS) for second place on the all-time winners list in this category, behind only The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Comedy Central), which won an astonishing 11 times. Both of those franchises are nominated again this year, with their current hosts – Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah, respectively.

The other nominees in the category are Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC) and Conan (TBS). This is the 10th nomination in the category for Kimmel’s program; it has yet to win. It’s the second nod in the category for Conan, which concluded an 11-season run in June. It too has yet to win.

Season 11 is something else,” Smoove, who portrays Leon Black in the hit comedy series, told Deadline at the Creative Emmy Awards on Sunday. “Where does Larry end this? I don’t know. When I first met Larry in season 6, I asked him when he was going to end this and he said he didn’t know.

8. Will Saturday Night Live win outstanding variety sketch series for the fifth straight year?

There is only one other nominee in the category — the buzzy A Black Lady Sketch Show. SNL won seven Creative Arts Emmys this year, bringing its Emmy total to 84, more than any other series in TV history. Five cast members are competing for Emmys Sunday night – Kenan Thompson, Bowen Yang, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong. All are nominated for outstanding supporting actor or actress in a comedy series.

9. Will Bo Burnham become just the fourth person in Emmy history to win four Emmys in one year?

Comedian Bo Burnham won three awards at the Creative Arts Emmys for his work on his Netflix special, Bo Burham: Inside. He took outstanding music direction and both outstanding directing and writing for a variety special. If Burnham also wins on Sunday for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded), he will become just the fourth individual to win four Emmys in one year. The first three were Moira Demos (Making a Murderer, 2016), Amy Sherman-Palladino (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, 2018) and Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek, 2020).

But the competition in the variety special category is fierce. Dave Chappelle, who has won in this category in two of the last three years, is back with 8:46 (also on Netflix). The competition also includes Hamilton (Disney+), David Byrne’s American Utopia (HBO), Friends: The Reunion (HBO Max) and A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote (HBO Max).

Several of these entries have proven awards appeal. Hamilton won a near-record 11 Tony Awards. Its cast album won a Grammy. David Byrne’s American Utopia is set to receive a special Tony at the long-delayed Tony Awards on Sept. 26. Its cast album was nominated for a Grammy. The West Wing won four consecutive Emmys for outstanding drama series. Friends won an Emmy for outstanding comedy series.

The first stand-up special to win in this category was Chris Rock: Bring the Pain (HBO) in 1997. The next two were Dave Chappelle: Equanimity (2018) and Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2020).

Burnham’s album, Inside: The Songs, reached No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square’ Brings Holiday Movies Back In Emmy Winning Circle .
Holiday movies are great business, consistently bringing in female audiences and delivering big ratings to establish themselves one of the most lucrative programming genres. But along with their success, the holiday movies also have carried stigma over formulaic plots and characters and are not typically considered awards material. Netflix’s Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square broke through that stigma to win the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie at the Creative Arts ceremony Sunday.
