Taylor Swift Celebrates Emmy Win -- See Who Else Snagged Awards!
By Desiree Murphy
Taylor Swift has no chill, and we don't blame her.
She just won her first-ever Emmy on Thursday, and her excitement over snagging the Creative Arts Emmy award hasn't cooled down one bit. The 'Wildest Dreams' singer won the award for Original Interactive Program for her AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience, in which she served as the executive producer and star. Ever since the big win, she's been celebrating with her tour crew and, of course, posting about it on Instagram.
'WHEN THEY OVERNIGHT YOU AN EMMY. I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS A THING,' Taylor captioned her first post-win photo.
In another photo, Swift and her crew took an epic selfie with the shiny new statue. 'If you need us, we’ll be taking selfies with the Emmy ALL DAY,' she wrote.
Swift then started giving out her own version of Emmy awards. In this video posted to her 46.3 million Instagram followers, she jokingly presents her tour dancer, Giuseppe Giofrè, with the award for 'Dramatic Actor Performance.'
Swift isn't the only one continuing to take in the reality of her Emmy win, however. The Creative Arts Emmys, a precursor to the Primetime Emmys, took place at the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday, and HBO and its hit drama, Game of Thrones, came out the major winners.
HBO snagged 29 awards as a network, followed by NBC with 11. Other leaders include FX Networks with 8, and ABC, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, FOX and PBS with 4.
HBO's fantasy drama television series, Game of Thrones, is the clear Emmys frontrunner, as the show won eight technical achievement awards, including Outstanding Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic) and Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Contemporary Or Fantasy Program.
Following not far behind with five individual awards is FX Network’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, whose wins included Outstanding Makeup For A Limited Series Or A Movie (Non-Prosthetic and Outstanding Hairstyling For A Limited Series Or A Movie.
A taped version of the Creative Emmys will air on FXX on Sept. 19. The Primetime Emmys air Sept. 20 on Fox.
