The Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented this weekend at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter had a full run-down of all the results, and Star Trek: Discovery was among the winners, for the first time.

Discovery won the 2019 Emmy for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special, for the episode “If Memory Serves”. That was the season two episode where Spock and Commander Burnham journey to Talos IV.

In the prosthetic makeup category, Discovery beat out the likes of American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Chernobyl, Fosse/Verdon, and (Emmy darling) Game of Thrones.

Star Trek: Discovery was also nominated for Outstanding Main Title Design, Outstanding Sound Editing, and Outstanding Special Visual Effects; those awards were won by Game of Thrones, Game of Thrones, and Game of Thrones.

You can watch the now-Emmy-award-winning Star Trek: Discovery episode “If Memory Serves” on CBS All Access now. And if you’re interested in hearing from Harry Judge, the actor who portrayed the Tellarite admiral in the episode, then you should check out the latest episode of The Trek Files, in which he and Larry Nemecek discuss the Tellarites’ place in Star Trek lore.
