Bring the Bling, Eh? The Kennedys Success Goes International
Posted 08.04.11 by reelz
Not satisfied with garnering 10 Emmy nominations last month, The Kennedys — the 8-part movie event you almost weren't allowed to see — has also charmed another 10 noms for the Gemini Awards.
The Geminis hono(u)r the best in Canadian television (the Canadian equivalent to the Emmys) and as The Kennedys is a joint production, filmed in Canada and airing on the Canadian History Channel, they qualify. The mini-series even stars some Canadians (Barry Pepper and Kristin Booth).
Here's a list of the nominations:
– Best Dramatic Mini-Series or TV Movie
– Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series
– Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series
– Best Achievement in Make-Up
– Best Costume Design
– Best Direction in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series
– Best Original Music Score for a Dramatic Program, Mini-Series or TV Movie
– Best Photography in a Dramatic Program or Series
– Best Production Design in a Fiction Program or Series
– Best Sound in a Dramatic Program
