The Super Bowl LVI halftime show was among the big winners at this year's Creative Arts Emmys.

The performance, which featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special on Saturday. It marks the first time the Super Bowl halftime show has won an Emmy in this category, according to Deadline's Lynette Rice.

"It's amazing. This is the first time this show has ever won this award, and it's so incredible to be a part of this moment," executive producer Jesse Collins said while accepting the honor. "It took an incredible team to pull this together, and I thank you all."

The Super Bowl LVI halftime show was also awarded Emmys for Outstanding Production Design for a Variety Special and Outstanding Music Direction.
