The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences held its even-less-popular Creative Arts Emmys awards ceremony on Saturday—though it’s not like we need to tell you, considering Twitter was absolutely aflame with outrage over Return To Cranford’s surprise upset win for Best Costume for a Movie/Miniseries. But now that we’ve all had 48 hours to process it, perhaps the sting has lessened, and we can move on to discussing some of the other categories?

Among the more notable wins, Betty White’s stranglehold over media grows stronger every day, and this weekend her appearance on Saturday Night Live allowed her to clasp the Best Guest Actress in a Comedy trophy in her steely fists and once again sound her barbaric yawp across the roofs of the world. Surprising no one, John Lithgow collected a Best Guest Actor win for his show-saving performance on Dexter, Neil Patrick Harris took home one of his own for Glee, and Anne Hathaway nabbed Best Voiceover Performance for her cameo on The Simpsons. And of course, Jeff Probst continues to be America’s favorite reality show host.

That’s pretty much it for the statuettes claimed by famous people. Some of the more interesting technical trophies: Robot Chicken is now “the Emmy-award-winning Robot Chicken.” (Of course, by that same token, you could also call it “the Emmy-award-winning Flash Forward,” since it was recognized for Best Stunt Coordination for those daring wheel-spinning scenes.) The Colbert Report took home a prize for writing, while Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution won Best Reality Program. Lost received what could end up being its only Emmy this year, for best editing—and the bad news is that Michael Giacchino’s stellar composing work on the final season lost out to 24. But Saturday was nothing but good news for “The Old Spice Guy,” because we now officially love those “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” commercials so much we gave it an award. Here’s the full list of winners. [Movieline]
