This week, of course, is Emmy week and everyone is giddy in anticipation of this Friday’s big event. Even before the stars trail down the red carpet and through the packed aisles of the theatre for the primetime ceremony, some awards are already being given out. Murray Bartlett (Cyrus Foley) and Bonnie Dennison (Susan “Daisy” LeMay) were at a black-tie gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City for the 35th Annual Daytime Creative Arts and Entertainment Awards, being handed out on Friday. In spite of being Friday the 13th, luck proved to be on Guiding Light‘s side when it scooped up a trio of honors. These technical honors recognize excellence in achievement in the creative fields which normally catch our notice, even if they get less public attention.

Hanne Anderson took home the first statuette for Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing. Hanne was recognized for the work done on last year’s historical “Hands On: After Katrina” episode which broke away from the traditional frame of the series to document the cast and crew as they took part in reconstruction initiatives. The show’s second nod came in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction And Composition For A Drama Series. This award was shared by music directors Gary Deinstadt, Billy Barbwr Robyn Cutler and composers Brian D. Siewert, Danny Pelfrey, Chieli Minucci, Mark Stephen Ross, Kenneth Eberhard, Linda Lawley, Michele Vice-Maslin and Ron Komie.

The show took home its final trophy of the night for Outstanding Achievement in Live and Direct To Tape Sound Mixing For A Drama Series. Taking home that prize were production mixers Charlie Jones, Robert Drew Primrose and Steve Watson; post-production mixers Thomas Ineson, Thomas Bornkamp and Doug Kent; boom operators Andrew C. Capuano, Charlie Iacono, Anthony Valentino, Anthony Butch Inglese and Eric Shuttleworth. For the full list of this year’s Creative Awards winners, please see our article.
