The Dutch editor Henk Van Eeghen won a Creative Emmy in the night from Wednesday to Thursday (Dutch time) for the editing of the action series

Watchmen

, he reports to NU.nl.

The nomination for

Watchmen

was Van Eeghen's sixth chance at an Emmy.

The editor, who assembles separate moving images into a whole in a film or series, already won the prize in 2010 for the series

Lost.

The Creative Arts Emmys mainly award prizes for work behind the scenes, but there are also awards for small categories such as documentary series and specials.

"The strange thing is that you never get used to it", the editor told NU.nl in July in response to his nomination for the American television award.

"Suddenly your entire mailbox is full of congratulations, great fun. It feels like a new experience every time."

Watchmen

is based on the 1987 comic novel of the same name about superheroes living in an alternative future.

The HBO series was nominated for the most awards at the 72nd Emmy Awards.

With 26 nominations,

The Marvelous Mrs.

Maisel

(20 nominations),

Ozark

and

Succession

(both 18) for.

The regular Emmy Awards will take place on the night from Sunday to Monday.
