We already know Jeff Probst is an Emmy winner this year, as is Betty White. While it might have been more fun to see those awards presented at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards show to be seen live Sunday on NBC, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences can't present every award live.

Thus the Creative Arts Emmys were presented on Aug. 21. A replay of the event can be seen at 1 p.m. today on the E! channel.

Another fun category we missed was Outstanding Commercial. I really think this category was a two-way race, between the "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like: Old Spice Body Wash" or "Green Police: Audi."

I would have been happy with either winner, however the Emmy went to "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like: Old Spice Body Wash."

Jimmy Fallon will be the host of Sunday's Emmy show. In an Emmy first, the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards will stream a live companion show from backstage on Emmys.com and NBC.com.

Another highlight of Sunday's show will be the presentation of the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award to George Clooney. He will be just the fourth person ever to receive the award.

On Sunday, Emmys will be award in 27 categories.
