Laurie Metcalf won her fourth Emmy and Nathan Lane his first as the two-night 2022 Creative Arts Emmy Awards wrapped up Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater with awards given out for scripted programming in 48 categories.
Metcalf won best guest actress in a comedy for her portrayal of the tour manager in HBO’s “Hacks.” There were three other “Hacks” nominees on the court – Jane Adams, Harriet Sansom Harris and Kaitlin Olson.
The other nominees were Harriet Walter, who played the mother of Premier League team owner Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham) in Apple TV+’s ‘Ted Lasso’, and Jane Lynch, who played the stunt double of the semi-retired actor Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin) in Hulu’s “Only Murders In The Building.”
The Emmy was the first for Metcalf since her win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy from 1992 to 1994 for her role as the sister of the character played by Roseanne Barr in “Roseanne.” Metcalf has been nominated eight times between her wins in 1994 and Sunday.
Lane won for his role as deli chain owner Teddy Dimas in “Only Murders In The Building,” his sixth nomination in the category and seventh overall.
Jerrod Carmichael was trying to follow Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle as the third consecutive “Saturday Night Live” host to win for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.
There were two ‘Ted Lasso’ nominees on the pitch – James Lance nominated for his portrayal of journalist Trent Crimm and Sam Richardson for his role as the Ghanaian billionaire who tries to persuade AFC Richmond right wing Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh) to sign with the Moroccan team he owns.
The other nominees were Bill Hader, nominated for portraying three characters in an episode of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and Christopher McDonald, who has the recurring role of Palmetto Casino CEO Marty Ghilain on “Hacks.”
HBO’s “Succession” represented four of the six nominees for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series – Adrien Brody, James Cromwell, Arian Moayed and Alexander Skarsgard – and three of the six Guest Actress in a Drama Series nominees – Hope Davis, Sanaa Lathan and Walter – but did not win in either category.
Colman Domingo won Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his recurring role as recovering drug addict Ali Muhammed in HBO’s teen drama “Euphoria.” Lee You-mi won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for portraying a gamer in the South Korean Netflix survival drama “Squid Game.”
Both were nominated for the first time.
Tom Pelphrey of Netflix’s “Ozark” was the other Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series nominated. The other Outstanding Guest Actresses in a Drama Series nominated were Marcia Gay Harden of Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show” and Martha Kelly of “Euphoria.”
The Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie went to Disney+’s live-action/computer-animated action-adventure comedy “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” based on characters from the 1989-90 Disney Channel and the syndicated animated series of the same name.
Other nominees were Showtime’s “Ray Donovan: The Movie,” Paramount+’s “Reno 911!: The Hunt For QAnon,” HBO/HBO Max’s “The Survivor,” and The Roku Channel’s “Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas.”
Most of Sunday’s awards were in various technical categories, including hair, makeup, production design, picture editing, sound editing, sound mixing and visual effects.

“Euphoria” also won for Outstanding Choreography for Scripted Programming, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour), Outstanding Contemporary Makeup (Non-Prosthetic), and Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a drama series.
