Melissa Leo

Melissa Leo was an early winner while the team of Behind the Candelabra took home eight Creative Arts Emmys Sunday night.

The Academy Award winner won best guest actress in a comedy for her work on hit US television series Louis, starring comedian Louis C.K.

The 53-year-old star beat out Saturday Night Live hosts Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy as well as 30 Rock's Elaine Stritch for the honour.

"Gracias Louie!" Melissa said taking the stage, "And thank you, Blair," she added, giving nod to the show's executive producer M. Blair Breard.

Behind the Candelabra, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in the story of Liberace and his lover, was the toast of the evening with eight wins, including best casting, art direction, editing, hairstyling, sound mixing, non-prosthetic make-up, prosthetic make-up and costumes for a miniseries, movie or a special.

The team of Boardwalk Empire took home four prizes, including best art direction, hairstyling, sound mixing and sound editing for a single-camera series.

Other big winners included Bob Newhart, who took home the honour best guest actor in a comedy for his role in The Big Bang Theory.

In the drama category, Dan Bucatisnky won for his guest role in Scandal, starring Kerry Washington.

Casting executives for Netflix's original series House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, also took home a win.

Saturday Night Live also broke a new record after marking its 39th Emmy win with accolades for best make-up, art direction and hairstyling.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Peace and quiet will help you recover from a busy social life. Although you love attending parties, these engagements can take a toll on your health. Set aside a few hours in your busy schedule for solitary pursuits. Taking a nap, reading for pleasure or luxuriating in a hot bath is strongly advised. You've lost touch with your spiritual side. Take this opportunity to reconnect with it. You'll be surprised to learn how much you enjoy your own company.More
