How did the director of the 2010 winter Olympics opening ceremony win an Emmy?

Didn't the opening ceremony get totally messed up?

Gunts has directed and won the Emmy for four Olympic ceremonies including Athens, Salt Lake, Bejing, and now Toronto. While the ceremony did go particularly great it may be his legacy that helped him get a leg up. The broadcast was also arranged differently for CTV in Canada and went much smoother.
