Cynthia Nixon, who gained fame and an Emmy with "Sex and the City," added a second trophy Saturday for a guest role on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

Nixon was honored at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys, which recognize technical and other achievements for the 2007-08 season and preceded next weekend's main ceremony.

Other acting honors went to Glynn Turman, named best guest actor in a drama for "In Treatment"; Kathryn Joosten, best guest actress in a comedy for "Desperate Housewives"; and Tim Conway, best guest actor in a comedy for "30 Rock."

Joosten's portrayal of Mrs. McCluskey on the ABC drama also earned an Emmy in 2005.

The creative arts Emmys will be shown as a special next Saturday on E! Entertainment, followed Sunday by ABC's live broadcast of the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Among networks, HBO received a leading 16 awards, followed by ABC and PBS with 9 each. CBS earned eight awards and NBC six.

HBO's miniseries "John Adams" was Saturday's top winner with eight awards, including best costumes for a miniseries, movie or special. AMC's "Mad Men," the top series nominee, took home four awards, including best cinematography for an hourlong series.
