Mel Brooks, Neil Patrick Harris and President Barack Obama helped boost the winners at this year's creative arts Emmys.

But Winter Park wasn't so fortunate. The Emmy for outstanding commercial went to Apple's "Misunderstood." Budweiser's "Hero's Welcome," which filmed in Winter Park, was a nominee.

Emmys in the creative arts portion of this year's awards were handed out Saturday. Awards in the major categories will be announced Aug. 25 on NBC.

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" collected five awards, the most for any show Saturday. Four awards apiece went to "Game of Thrones" and "True Detective," both HBO; PBS' "Sherlock: His Last Vow"; and "Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey" on Fox.

HBO will have more reasons to crow in its advertising. The premium cable channel topped all networks with 15 prizes. NBC placed second with 10, followed by PBS with eight, Fox and Netflix with seven apiece, CBS with six and ABC with five.

"Between Two Ferns" was named best short-format, live-action entertainment show for Zach Galifianakis' interview with Obama. "Between Two Ferns" is on the Funny or Die website.

CBS' broadcast of the 67th annual Tony Awards was honored in a special class. Neil Patrick Harris was producer and host. The Tony telecast was also honored for the song "Bigger," which Harris performed.

The best variety special was the "AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks" on TNT.

Awards for guest actors are presented at the creative arts ceremony. In dramatic series, the winners were Joe Morton for ABC's "Scandal" and Allison Janney for Showtime's "Masters of Sex."

On the comedy side, the winners were Jimmy Fallon for hosting "Saturday Night Live" and Uzo Aduba, who plays "Crazy Eyes" in "Orange Is the New Black" from Netflix.

Discovery's "Deadliest Catch" was named outstanding unstructured reality program while ABC's "Shark Tank" was best among the structured series.

CNN's "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown" and HBO's "Vice" tied for outstanding informational series.

In variety, "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central won for writing and "Saturday Night Live" was honored for direction of the Fallon episode. Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" won for its choreography.

For documentary or nonfiction series, there was a tie between PBS' "American Masters" and Showtime's "Years of Living Dangerously" about climate change. Top documentary special was "JFK" from PBS' "American Experience."
