This weekend, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences held the 2011 Creative Arts Emmys, and The Walking Dead walked home with the award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Miniseries, Movie or Special.

The award — the first Emmy for The Walking Dead — was presented to Special FX Makeup Artist and Consulting Producer Greg Nicotero and his team from KNB EFX, who together beat out makeup teams from HBO’s Game of Thrones, Fox’s Glee, NBC’s The Cape and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

AMC’s Mad Men also took home a Creative Arts Emmy this year, for Outstanding Hairstyling.

Mad Men and The Killing are still up for seven Primetime Emmy Awards across categories such as Best Drama, Best Actor and Best Actress, which will be presented during a ceremony airing this Sun., Sep. 18 on FOX.
