A trio of shows — "Westworld," "Saturday Night Live" and "Stranger Things" — each took home five wins and HBO notched 19 wins total at the 2017 Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend. 

Though the bulk of the awards handed out Saturday and Sunday nights were for behind-the-scenes and technical achievements, there were some performance awards as well. 

Melissa McCarthy and Dave Chappelle won for guest actress and actor in a comedy series for their appearances on "Saturday Night Live," while the awards for guest actor and actress in a drama went to Gerald McRaney, for his work as Dr. Nathan Katowski on "This Is Us," and Alexis Bledel, who played Ofglen in “The Handmaid’s Tale."

RuPaul Charles was once again named outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program. Leah Remini won her first Emmy, and Meryl Streep took home her third. 

The 69th Creative Arts Emmys, which saw awards handed out in 93 categories, will be broadcast at 8 p.m. Sept. 16 on FXX, leading up to the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards at 5 p.m. on Sept. 17 on CBS.

For the record, 4:48 p.m.: An earlier version of this post gave RuPaul Charles' name as RuPaul Jones. It also said the ceremony was Friday and Saturday; it was held Saturday and Sunday.
