August 22nd, 2010 // Leave a Comment

While next week is the big Emmy show, yesterday the Emmy’s were given out in some of the “lesser” prominent categories.

Betty White, 88, won her sixth Emmy for guest-hosting stint on Saturday Night Live, while Neil Patrick Harris, 37, picked up two Emmys: for his recent turn hosting the Tony Awards, and for his guest-starring appearance on Glee.

During his acceptance speech for his hosting triumph, Harris thanked his longtime partner David Burtka; the couple is expecting twins via surrogate, due this fall.

Other winners included Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution (best reality series) and Survivor‘s Jeff Probst (best reality-show host).

John Lithgow earned his Emmy for his menacing season-long arc on Dexter. The Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa won (well, the creators of his ad, Weiden + Kennedy, won — for best commercial).

Ann-Margret won for her guest drama turn on NBC’s Law and Order: SVU. Cartoon Network’s Robot Chicken won outstanding short-form animated program.

HBO won the most awards (17), followed by ABC (15) and Fox (9).
