'John Adams' cleans up at Emmys no one sees



The Creative Arts Primetime Emmys are about as exciting as watching paint dry, but networks managed to avoid it while waiting to see Tina Fey do a dead-on impersonation of Sarah Palin, we guess you should know the biggest winner was John Adams (the miniseries, not the dead president), which won eight statues. Oh, and Mad Men won four.

Johnadams Also winning for technical or other nebulous achievements were Cynthia Nixon, who won a second after Sex and the City for a guest role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. That should sum up the rest of the competition right there.

Other acting honors went to Glynn Turman, who won best guest actor in a drama for In Treatment; Kathryn Joosten, best guest actress in a comedy for Desperate Housewives as Mrs. McCluskey (she won in 2005, too); and Tim Conway, best guest actor in a comedy for 30 Rock, the AP reports. You can watch the show Saturday on E! before Sunday's main event on ABC, but if it was interesting enough to watch, they woulda broadcast it live in the first place.
