9/5/14 Update: We heard from CalArts alumnus Gregg Barbanell (Film/Video BFA 77), who was also nominated for an Emmy this year—and for the past 3 years—for his work as a foley artist. He’s part of the sound editing team of the award-winning series, Breaking Bad. Although the Starz show Black Sails eventually took home the Emmy for Sound Design, the Breaking Bad sound team did win a Golden Reel Award this year, handed out by the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE).
Nominations for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced recently and CalArts alumni have, as in previous years, made it to the shortlist.
Don Cheadle (Theater BFA 86) received his third consecutive nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as slick management consultant Marty Kaan in Showtime’s House of Lies. Johnny Bradley (Theater BFA 07) and Daniel K. Boland (Theater BFA 95) are part of the lighting design team for NBC’s reality television singing competition The Voice, which was nominated for Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction for a Variety Series. ABC’s 86th Academy Awards, for which Gloria Lamb (Theater BFA 05) served as an Art Director, garnered a nomination for Outstanding Art Direction for Variety, Non-Fiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Programming.
The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by comedian Seth Meyers will be broadcast on Aug. 25 at 8 pm on NBC. The Creative Arts Emmys, which honor the technical and behind-the-scenes crafts of television, will be held on Aug. 16 in LA and will be broadcast on Aug. 24 at 8 pm on FXM.
