Enterprise won two awards at last night's Creative Arts Emmy ceremony, winning in the visual effects and hairstyling categories.
While the awards in the above-the-line categories won't be presented until next week, yesterday the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences already announced the winners in the so-called creative arts categories, comprising many of the technical fields. The awards were handed out during a special ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium, followed by a banquet.
While Enterprise was nominated in four categories, the show only won awards in the categories Outstanding Special Visual Effects (for 'Broken Bow') and Outstanding Hairstyling (for 'Two Days and Two Nights'. The show had also been nominated for the prosthetics in 'Broken Bow,' but wasn't able to beat the Six Feet Under make-up team, while Smallville's sound editing also beat the 'Enterprise' pilot. The final Series V nomination was for 'Breaking the Ice,' also in the Visual Effects category.
Enterprise was the only UPN show to take home any awards. As previously reported, fellow UPN show Buffy the Vampire Slayer had received four nominations in the technical categories, but was unable to win any awards - even the show's special musical episode 'Once More, With Feeling' lost out to the music direction of the Olympic Games' opening ceremony.
