'Adventure Time,' 'Mea Maxima Culpa' and 'Portlandia' Among the Juried Creative Arts Emmy Winners

The Creative Arts Emmy ceremony will take place on September 15 at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, with a two-hour edited version being broadcast on the 21st on the new FX spin-off network FXX — but the folks below already know they’re going home with an award. Today, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the winners for the juried prizes in the categories of Individual Achievement in Animation, Costumes for a Variety Program or Special and Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking, which went to “Adventure Time,” “Portlandia” and Alex Gibney’s “Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God,” among others.

The juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in their peer group — instead of nominees, there’s a one-step evaluation and voting procedure, and it’s possible for there to be no winner awarded. Here’s the list of juried winners below. The big awards — the Primetime Emmy Awards — will air live on CBS on September 22nd at 8pm ET.
