Trevor Noah bags his first Emmy

Trevor Noah wins Emmy for The Daily Show        By Zukiswa Zimela

He has since made appearances on several USA late-night talk shows, including on The Late Late Show with James Corden on which the karaoke series aired until technology giant, Apple, bought the rights to the feature past year.

Stranger Things, Westworld and The Crown were among the big winners at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were handed out in Los Angeles at the weekend. Veteran arranger-conductor Rickey Minor won his first Emmy (on his sixth nomination) for Music Direction for the ABC special Taking the Stage: African-American Music and Stories That Changed America.

The actor-songwriter-producer, Common, took home his first Emmy Award on Saturday for co-writing "A Letter to the Free" for Ava DuVernay's 13th documentary.

On Sunday evening, the 69th annual Emmy Awards will air, bringing to the small screen witty humor from host Stephen Colbert, as well as an extremely competitive lineup of nominated shows. Melissa McCarthy and Dave Chappelle took Guest Actress/Actor in a Comedy, respectively, for their hosting stints on Saturday Night Live.

Saturday Night Live was another big victor of the two-night ceremony in Los Angeles, also getting five awards in the variety, reality and documentary sections. Lee and his team won for Outstanding Production Design for a Variety, Nonfiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Series for the February 11, 2017, episode, hosted by Alec Baldwin. (Consider the Best Comedy category, where "Veep" has been nominated yearly since its 2012 premiere and won twice — so far.) The last time as many as half the drama field was newcomers happened more than 30 years ago. Westworld picked up awards for visual effects, sound mixing, interactive programming, hairstyling and make-up. We love you and we see you.

HBO has led all networks at the Emmy Awards in total wins for 15 straight years, and has the early lead yet again.
