The 2017 Creative Arts Emmys are here!

The annual ceremony—which honors outstanding artistic and technical achievement in a variety of television program genres—was split into two nights for the second year in a row. The two-night event held at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. (the same place that the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Sept. 17) and features a whopping 92 awards, split into 46 awards per night. The Creative Arts Emmys will be televised on Saturday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. on FXX.

Rachel Bloom, LL Cool J and T Bone Burnett were among the presenters at Saturday night's event.

These precursor awards often illuminate who may take home the big awards at the Primetime Emmys.

Last year, Game of Thrones nabbed nine Creative Arts trophies. This year Netflix's Stranger Things and HBO's Big Little Lies and Westworld were some of the big winners. HBO earned the most out of any network, winning a whopping 19 trophies.
