Lighting designer Robert Dickinson and production designer Jeremy Railton were among the many contributors to the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games Opening Ceremony to be feted during the Creative Arts Awards of the Primetime Emmys, held Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Michael Curry, who contributed typically dazzling puppets to the broadcast, was also among those honored. The show won six Emmys in all.
Other big winners during the Emmy ceremony, which will be televised on E! Entertainment Television Saturday, Sept. 21, included the freshman HBO series Six Feet Under, which took home five awards, and Frasier, which won three Emmys for an all-time total of 30. That surpasses The Mary Tyler Moore Show's 29 to achieve an Emmy record. (It should be noted, however, that Frasier took nine years to reach that number, while MTM managed its feat in only seven.)
You should also be happy to know that The Osbournes triumphed in the category of Outstanding Non-Fiction Program (Reality). The major Primetime Emmy awards will be handed out Sunday, Sept. 22, in a ceremony to be televised at 8pm EST on NBC.
