In the lead-up to its final season, CBS' hit show How I Met Your Mother won two creative Emmys one week before its final season premiere.
The show won for two of the four categories it was nominated in. Susan Federman won for Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series for the episode P.S. I Love You while Chris La Fountaine won for Outstanding Cinematography for a Multi-Camera Series for the episode The Final Page: Part Two.
Show creator Carter Bay tweeted that this makes the third Emmy for Federman, who previously won in the same category in both 2011 and 2012, and the second for La Fontaine, who previously won in 2006. The prior wins for both were for work done on How I Met Your Mother.
Neil Patrick Harris won for his 2013 Tony Awards telecast, his third such win in four years. Harris is also hosting the Primetime Awards telecast this year and has revealed that he will not perform a song and dance number to open the show so as not to compete with what he did at the Tony Awards, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The 65th installation of the awards show, also held one week before the televised broadcast of the Primetime Emmys, was Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre. It will air in an edited two-hour special on FXX Saturday, Sept. 21, at 9 p.m.
The Primetime telecast airs Sunday, Sept. 22 on CBS. How I Met Your Mother premieres the following night.
