The network-televised Primetime Emmy Awards may not be happening until next Sunday—but the biggest dance prize has actually already been handed out. That'd be the award for Outstanding Choreography, presented during this weekend's Creative Emmy Awards, honoring artistic and technical achievement in television.
The Outstanding Choreography field was absolutely STACKED. (No surprise, given all the fantastic dance happening on TV these days.) Nominees included Travis Wall, for his ever-excellent work on "So You Think You Can Dance," and Derek Hough, for his high-octane "Dancing with the Stars" routines. So, who actually took home the statue?
It was a tie! Quest Crew was recognized for three of its jaw-droppingly fabulous numbers for "America's Best Dance Crew," and Kathryn Burns also won for her charmingly kooky choreography for "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." Congrats, you guys!
A little behind on your TV watching? We've got you covered: Here are the routines that earned Quest Crew and Burns their Emmys. (We're particularly obsessed with Burns' "Settle for Me"—last video below—which channels Fred and Ginger in the most delightfully offbeat way. If you haven't gotten into "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" yet, go binge-watch it on Netflix RIGHT NOW.)
