A trio of Emmy-honoured actors are winners again for their guest performances in TV series, joined by an awards newcomer.

Bradley Whitford and Cherry Jones received trophies for their The Handmaid’s Tale roles at Sunday’s creative arts Emmy ceremony.

Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby won on the comedy side, both for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Game of Thrones led with 10 Emmys in technical and other categories at the two-night weekend ceremony, which is the precursor to the main Emmy Awards that will air Sept. 22 on Fox.

A Game of Thrones team captured Emmys in 10 categories during the two-day ceremony, including for sound editors Tim Kimmel, Tim Hands, Paula Fairfield, Bradley C. Katona, Paul Bercovitch, John Matter, David Klotz, Brett Voss, Jeffrey Wilhoit and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit. (Amy Sussman/Getty Images)

The 10 wins included a trophy for Halifax’s Paula Fairfield in the sound editing category as part of the team on the HBO drama. It’s Fairfield’s second win after nabbing a trophy for the same series in 2015. She’s been nominated for Game of Thrones in four other years, and received three previous nominations for work on ABC/CTV’s Lost.

Meanwhile, Montreal-based Elisabeth Williams was among the team of winners for best production design for The Handmaid’s Tale, which airs on Crave. She also won last year for the series, and earned a nomination in 2016 for FX’s ​​​​​​​Fargo.
