The Kennedys' winning streak continues, taking home its first three winged statuettes at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards — Outstanding Makeup, Outstanding Hairstyling, and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a TV Miniseries or Movie. The epic 8-part movie event is nominated for four additional Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie. Both Greg Kinnear (JFK) and Barry Pepper (RFK) are up for Lead Actor, and Tom Wilkinson (Joe Kennedy Sr.) is nominated for Supporting Actor.
The Pillars of the Earth also won its first Emmy tonight, Best Sound Editing in a TV Miniseries or Movie. ReelzChannel will be airing this sweeping nine-part miniseries — which also has an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie — starting Sunday, December 4. The Pillars of the Earth stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, and Donald Sutherland.
The Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were taped tonight at the Nokia Theatre in L.A., will air next Saturday, Sept. 17 at 8PM ET/PT.
