With the Emmy Awards presentations slated for next month, the industry is gearing up for a first--two separate Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies the weekend prior to the Emmy Awards telecast.

The new two-show format at L.A. LIVE’s Microsoft Theater will include presentations of above- and below-the-line awards, as previously presented in a single evening event. These back-to-back ceremonies--on Saturday, Sept. 10, and Sunday, Sept. 11--will honor a wide range of contributors including art directors, costume designers, cinematographers, sound editors and will include both non-traditional short form content as well as traditional content. 

Earlier this year, the Television Academy’s Board of Governors voted to expand its Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony to two consecutive nights in response to how the TV landscape continues to grow and evolve as the Academy’s 20,000-plus professional members increasingly create and produce content for new and emerging global platforms. Two Creative Arts Emmy shows have become necessary to properly accommodate the growing number of categories.

The 2016 Creative Arts weekend shows will be produced by Bob Bain who also produced the 2015 show.

“One of our primary missions as an Academy is to recognize creative excellence, both in front of and behind the cameras,” said Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. “Our Academy has a legacy of adjusting and expanding our awards to reflect the changing nature of our members’ Emmy-worthy work. The industry is growing, and we now have more than enough wonderful creativity to enjoy a second Creative Arts show where we can celebrate the excellence and achievement of this year’s work.”

To avoid audience-attendance overlap, the two shows will be split into two broad category groups. Additionally, identical Creative Arts Ball celebrations will be held on each night.

Here’s a breakdown of the Creative Arts Emmy categories that will be awarded on Saturday, Sept. 10, and Sunday, Sept. 11:
