2018 Emmy Winners — Three ASC Members Earn Awards

In their respective Academy of Television Art & Sciences categories, ASC members Adriano GoldmanEllen Kuras and Gary Baum (seen above) took home trophies for exceptional camerawork during the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Show, which took place in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater on September 15 and 16. 

The Creative Arts Emmys spotlight key technical disciplines and behind-the-scenes crafts, such as production design, casting, cinematography, costumes, hairstyling, makeup, lighting design, music, picture editing, sound editing and mixing, special visual effects, stunts, title design and more.

This marks the third year in which the Creative Arts has been divided into two ceremonies. At the Saturday show, the emphasis was on scripted programming; Sunday honored unscripted and documentary programming.
