Two-day Creative Arts ceremony in downtown LA draws TV stars and nonfiction talent
It never fails. No matter what weekend the Creative Arts Emmys are held on - and it varies from year to year - it is guaranteed to be blazingly hot.
So it was over the weekend when documentary and other categories were presented in a two-day ceremony at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. A publicist told me it was 102 degrees on the red carpet on Saturday, which I have no trouble believing. It also felt like the highest humidity of the summer.
But what's a little more sweat when you've already poured blood, sweat and tears into the work that got you an Emmy nomination? Plus, it was only hot on the red carpet - once indoors, blessed air conditioning revived guests before trophies were handed out.
