Game of Thrones, which was nominated for 12 Emmy awards this year, collected six trophies at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, more than any other show, and genre shows were represented in animation and children's programming as well.

The major categories are still to be awarded; we'll find out the rest of the news at the Primetime Emmy Awards, broadcast Sep. 23 on ABC. There Thrones will be up for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Among the categories handed out this weekend, Thrones was up for and won: Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Art Direction (shared with Boardwalk Empire), Outstanding Costumes For A Series, Outstanding Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series,

Categories where Thrones missed out: Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series (won by Homeland), Outstanding Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series (Downton Abbey), Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Miniseries, Movie Or A Special (The Walking Dead), and Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media—Enhancement To A Television Program Or Series ("The Team Coco Sync App").

Meanwhile, Futurama succeeded in one of two nominations: Maurice LaMarche won for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance against stiff competition. But the show lost Outstanding Animated Program to Nickelodeon's The Penguins of Madagascar: The Return of the Revenge of Dr. Blowhole, which is a gyp. The Wizards of Waverly Place won for Outstanding Children's Program.

The rest of the Creative Arts sci-fi/fantasy nominations was a wash-out. Treasure Island fell to Great Expectations in its miniseries categories. Grimm lost out to Southland in stunt coordination, and Touch, Falling Skies, and Once Upon a Time all lost as well (in a couple of cases to Thrones).
