Outstanding programs and talented individuals working behind the scenes and serving as guest performers were feted at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Saturday night, August 16 ahead of the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards next weekend. Jimmy Fallon and Jane Lynch were among the winners.

Fallon was named Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, thanks to his appearance on "Saturday Night Live". "Fallon was unable to be here tonight, cause he was arrested," presenter Joel McHale joked. "But we are happy to accept this award and will keep it forever. Haha."

Lynch, who previously won an Emmy for "Glee", this year took home Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for her debut as a host on reality series "Hollywood Game Night". She thanked the producer, "Sean Hayes, thank you for taking your crazy party and pitching it to NBC - thank you NBC for taking the bait. I hope we'll do more. I'm tickled pink, actually."

Other actors bringing home the golden winged trophy at the event included Uzo Aduba as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for "Orange Is the New Black", Joe Morton as Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for "Scandal", Allison Janney as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for "Masters of Sex", and Jeremy Irons as Outstanding Narrator for "Game of Lions".

"SNL" won 5 Emmys including Outstanding Makeup, Outstanding Directing, and Outstanding Costumes for the episode in which Fallon served as a host. The fifth win was for Outstanding Hairstyling, thanks to the episode where Anna Kendrick was the emcee. Following "SNL" with four prizes each were Seth MacFarlane's "Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey", "True Detective", "Game of Thrones", and "Sherlock: His Last Vow".
