‘Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker Adele will need to expand the size of her award cabinet as she has scooped a sting of gongs at the 2022 Creative Arts Emmy.
The 34-year-old chart topping star can add Emmy awards to her endlessly growing list of accolades – to sit nicely alongside her Oscar and multiple Grammy Awards.
On Saturday evening (London time), she was honoured in the USA for her special TV show ‘Adele: One Night Only’ which aired via CBS last year as she prepared to unleash her chart topper, ’30’. Her show was up for five awards – and won all of them.
According to Mirror.co.uk, the on-off special — which saw the singer interact with fans and celebrities while singing a number of her songs — scooped the Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) award; beating Dave Chappelle for his Netflix show ‘The Closer’.
She also defeated ‘One Last Time: An Evening with Tony Bennett’, Norm Macdonald’s Netflix special, and the Harry Potter 20th anniversary special ‘Return to Hogwarts’.
Mirror further states that Adele’s show also won Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special and Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction.
Paul Dugdale was awarded Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, and the show also nabbed Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction and Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Special.
Adele’s wins give her a chance to become an EGOT winner – if she were to perform on the theatrical stage and win a Tony Award as she now has an Emmy and already has a Golden Globe and Oscar. IANS
