LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2020 / Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), a leading entertainment marketing and premium content production company, today congratulated its subsidiary, the entertainment PR powerhouse 42West, on a monumentally successful night at the 72nd Emmy Awards.
42West was involved in various capacities with 33 programs and individuals that earned a total of 145 nominations and won 43 Emmy Awards overall. During Sunday's broadcast, 42West clients took home more than half of the awards presented.
Among the company's highlights was Pop TV's "Schitt's Creek," which 42West has been representing since 2018. The series, winner of nine Emmy Awards overall, made history as the first comedy series to win all seven major awards in the category in the same year, comprised of Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing For a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The "Schitt's Creek" sweep also marked the first time any show, either comedy or drama, has captured all four of its genre's acting categories (Lead Actor, Lead Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress) in the same year. Creator/Executive Producer/Star Daniel Levy also made history for the most Emmy wins in one night with four.
42West also served as a consultant for HBO, which led all networks by winning 30 Emmy Awards. HBO's winners included "Watchmen," which won Outstanding Limited Series and was the most-honored program of the year with 11 wins; "Succession," which won Outstanding Drama Series and tied as the third most-honored series with seven awards; and, "Bad Education" which won the award for Outstanding Television Movie.
42West's Crafts division represented Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," which received four Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour), Outstanding Music Supervision, Outstanding Period and/or Character Make-up and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour).
"What an incredible, history-making Emmy night for 42West and its clients," said Bill O'Dowd, CEO of Dolphin Entertainment. "To represent the winning program in all 3 televised categories of Comedy, Drama and Limited Series, and to passionately represent the first series to ever sweep the comedy category as well as to sweep all four acting awards in either comedy or drama, is a true testament to the company's expertise and passion for television. All of us at Dolphin could not be more proud of the teams at 42West, and we are grateful to witness on a daily basis their amazing work and tireless dedication to the clients they represent."
