Emmys week is officially over, and while we're a little sad that the celebrations are over, there are so many reasons to be happy that all the winners are finally announced. At Sound Particles, we were really looking forward to a specific list of winners: the sound and music department!

So we compiled the winners of these categories for you, because we know that these are the results that matter the most to sound lovers like us.

The Creative Arts Emmys — which honor outstanding artistic and technical achievement in a variety of television program genres, guest performances in weekly series, as well as exceptional work in the animation, reality, and documentary categories — kicked off on Monday night. The awards were spread out throughout the week, with winners also announced on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in the run-up to the Primetime Emmys on Sunday.

The Monday through Thursday shows are available to watch on the Television Academy's YouTube channel. The final night aired Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on FXX. Nailed It! host and Emmy nominee Nicole Byer hosted all five shows.
