Sound editorial and re-recording mixing teams from the Warner Bros. Post-Production Services group have garnered four 2006 Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Awards in these categories will be announced on August 19.
In the “Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series” category, Warner Bros. Studios teams received three of the five total nominations. A team led by supervising sound editor Walter Newman received a nomination for their work on an episode of ER. Newman, whose credits include The West Wing and Third Watch, has accumulated five Emmys during his sound editing career.
Two teams led by supervising sound editor Michael E. Lawshe also received nominations in the “Outstanding Sound Editing For a Series” category—one for work on an episode of Smallville, the other for the pilot episode of Supernatural. Lawshe, who has also worked on such shows as The O.C. and Malcolm in the Middle, led a team that last year received an Emmy nomination in the same category, also for Smallville.
Re-recording artists Charlie McDaniel and Kathy Oldham received a nomination for “Outstanding Multi-Camera Sound Mixing for a Series of Special” for their work on Two and a Half Men. Having both received an Emmy in 2005 for their work on Two and a Half Men, McDaniel and Oldham (who have both received multiple Emmy nominations) have worked on such shows as Friends and Home Improvement while at Warner Bros. Oldham also received an Emmy in 2003 for Everybody Loves Raymond.
