Ken Burns’s ‘The War’ was nominated for several awards last night but only walked away with three:
OUTSTANDING SOUND EDITING FOR NONFICTION PROGRAMMING (SINGLE OR MULTI-CAMERA) went to the episode “When Things Get Tough”. Congratulations must go to Erik Ewers, Ryan Gifford, Mariusz Glabinski, Magdaline Volaitis, Ira Spiegel, Marlena Grzaslewicz and Jacob Ribicoff for winning with their work on this episode, and for their exceptional achievment with the sound on the rest of the series.
Geoffrey C. Ward was awarded Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming for ‘Pride of Our Nation.’ Nice one.
Keith David was also awarded a jury prize for Outstanding Voice Over Performance for his narration of ‘A Necessary War’
‘Pride of Our Nation’ (one of the episodes on which I was lead assistant editor) was also nominated for Outstanding Picture Editing For NonFiction Programming, but that award went to Kim Roberts for ‘Autism: The Musical.” I should probably go watch that now…
