Hard-hitting western drama Deadwood was the big winner at the 2005 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Sunday night when it swept hit shows Lost and Desperate Housewives away to claim five honors.

The hit period show, starring Brit Ian McShane, won for cinematography, art direction, costumes, make-up and hairstyling.

Lost and Desperate Housewives won four awards apiece.

Among the actors honored were Desperate Housewives' nosy neighbor Kathryn Joosten, who took home one of the night's Best Guest Actress awards, Ray Liotta, for his guest role on ER, and Will & Grace regular Bobby Cannavale (Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series).

Controversial cartoon South Park picked up its first Emmy for Best Animated Program.

Meanwhile, comedian Jerry Lewis was also honored with the Governors Award for his pioneering work with victims of muscular dystrophy.

The comic hosts an annual telethon to raise cash for the victims of the disease.
