The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the

2014 Creative Arts Emmy Winners include 'Sex,' 'Scandal' co-stars
The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

Whoopi Goldberg Debuts Film About Iconic Lesbian Comedian At Tribeca Film Festival

Whoopi Goldberg Debuts Film About Iconic Lesbian Comedian At Tribeca Film Festival
Whoopi Goldberg recently made her directorial debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Her groundbreaking documentary, "I Got Somethin' To Tell You," is about the life of African-American and openly lesbian stand-up comic Moms Mabley, born Loretta Mary Aiken.

The North Carolina-born comedian graced stages such as New York City's Apollo Theatre and Carnegie Hall with her quirky acts touching on racism and romance between the 1920s and 1960s. Mabley came out in her late twenties and often made her sexuality a part of her routines.

She appeared in the 1933 film "The Emperor Jones" alongside Paul Robeson, which was inducted into the Library Of Congress' National Film Registry Library in 1999. Her wardrobe in the film was markedly androgynous, an unusual sight on a woman in the 1930s.

She was also referenced in the 1995 queer favorite "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar," starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo.

Whoopi Goldberg's Moms Mabley Feature Documentary Will Make World Premiere At Tribeca

Last summer, despite some criticism of her use of the online crowd-funding website, Kickstarter, to raise funds for her Moms Mabley documentary, Whoopi Goldberg did reach her campaign goal, actually surpassing it, raising over $73,000, when her goal was to raise $65,000. Goldberg had been working on a documentary feature on the life of pioneering comedian Moms Mabley for at least 3 years, and it looks like she's reached the tail-end of its journey, as it's been announced this afternoon that the film will make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, this spring.

Whoopi Goldberg Tells Indiewire Why She Is Using Kickstarter to Fund Her Directorial Debut
Celebrities using Kickstarter to raise money for a venture is nothing new. "Napoleon Dynamite" star Jon Heder, author Neil Gaiman and musician Amanda Palmer have all done it. But when Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg launched her own crowdfunding campaign yesterday to help fund her directorial debut "I Got Somethin' To Tell You," you can bet more than a few folks' eyebrows were raised. Goldberg is hoping to make her Kickstarter goal of $65,000 to finish producing her documentary on one of her role models, legendary stand-up comedian Moms Mabley (born Loretta Mary Aiken), who rose to national recognition in the 1960s. Mabley, who passed away at the age of 81 in 1975, has over 20 comedy records to her name and performed everywhere from Harlem's Apollo Theater to Carnegie Hall. As Goldberg says in her Kickstarter pitch, "Moms was the first and without her there probably would not have been a Totie, a Joan,
