Irish costume designer, Joan Bergin, and wardrobe supervisor, Susan O'Connor Cave, won an Emmy on Saturday night at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, for their work on "The Tudors".

Filming of the final series, of the hugely popular period drama, has recently been completed in Ardmore Studios, Wicklow. The drama starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII, James Frain and Henry Cavill amongst others.

This is Bergin's third Emmy for Outstanding Costumes. She won her first, also for "The Tudors" in 2008. In 2007 both, Bergin and O'Connor Cave, along with costume supervisors Ger Scully and Jessica O'Leary won awards.

Other winners on the night included the ever popular, former "Golden Girl" Betty White. She took home her fifth Emmy for her appearance on "Saturday Night Live". The biggest winner of the night was the HBO miniseries "The Pacific" along with "Modern Family".

"Glee" took home two awards including one for best guest star, which went to Neil Patrick Harris. Surprisingly "30 Rock", which stars Alec Baldwin, went home empty handed.
