Netflix’s Stranger Things and HBO’s Westworld gained momentum in the Emmy Award race as both shows racked up five wins at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

NBC’s This Is Us pulled out a big win with the last award of the night — the guest drama actor win for Gerald McRaney. The same was true for Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale as Alexis Bledel prevailed for guest drama actress.

Saturday Night Live, the venerable NBC sketch comedy, also took five wins, including comedy guest actor and actress awards for Dave Chappelle, as host, and Melissa McCarthy, for her guest appearances as former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. …

Highlights from Saturday and Sunday’s award presentations in 92 categories will air September 16 as a special on FXX.
