    Juried Primetime Emmy Awards Procedures: The juried categories require each entrant to be screened by a panel of professionals in the peer group, with the possibility of one, more than one or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence, there are no nominees, but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure.  Deliberations include an open discussion of the work of each entrant, with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. At the conclusion of each deliberation, the jury votes on the question, “Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award – yea or nay?” Only those with unanimous approval win.

    Iconic casting director Marion Dougherty will be posthumously awarded the 2014 Governors Award

    Casting director Marion Dougherty not only had an eye for talent, the department store window dresser-turned-Hollywood star-maker had the eye for talent.

    But on August 16 at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmys, the Television Academy will turn the spotlight on to Dougherty — who cast such then-unknowns in her time as Warren Beatty, James Dean, Jack Klugman and even paired Carroll O’Connor with the role of Archie Bunker in groundbreaking series “All in the Family”— and posthumously honor her with the 2014 Governors Award.

    The pioneering Pennsylvania native, who literally defined the role of the casting agent for both television and film, began her career in 1949 casting over 500 episodes of NBC’s “Kraft Television Theatre”. HBO aired the Emmy-nominated documentary “Casting By” on her career in 2013.

    Dougherty’s work on “Kraft” introduced many young performers who grew to become huge celebrities: Beatty, Dean, Klugman, Jack Lemmon and more.

    She meanwhile went on to cast such popular shows as “Naked City” and “Route 66”, and ultimately established her own casting agency. Not bad for Pennsylvania State University grad who had taken off to New York shortly after finishing college in 1943, dreaming of a career in set design, and earned $45 a week creating window displays for Bergdorf Goodman for a stretch.

    Dougherty’s gutsy, creative spirit drove her to think differently about how to discover the right performer for a given situation. Whereas conventional casting called for summoning streams of the same type of actors to read for a role, she instead pioneered the approach of selecting a just a handful of very different performers who could present varying nuances and options to a director. 

    “I won’t work on a project unless I appreciate the writing and the story and the characters,” Dougherty said in an interview with scholar, author and screenwriter Andrew Horton. “When I read, it is always a good sign when an actor or actress I know pops into my mind as I read. Because I do, at that point, feel I know the character, I only need to bring in a very few candidates, not dozens.”

    This approach lead to such lofty discoveries as Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight, Martin Sheen, William Shatner, Christopher Walken, Robert Duval, Glenn Close and James Caan.

    Among her greatest television moments, when Norman Lear approached Dougherty in 1969 to cast the pilot which later became CBS sitcom “All in the Family”, she fatefully recommended that Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton play the bigoted though somehow loveable blowhard Archie Bunker and Archie’s better, sweeter half, wife Edith.

    Undisputedly one of the greatest television programs of all time, Archie, Edith and family tread upon such then-controversial ground as women’s liberation, homosexuality, racism, rape, breast cancer, the Vietnam War, among other hot-button topics. “All in the Family” checked in at number one atop the Nielson ratings for 5 of its 8 years on the air.

    I am surprised that the two winners for The Simpsons won for “Treehouse of Horror XXIV”, since there wasn’t any CGI or stop-motion involved (usually the two things the Animation branch likes when giving out this award – then again, other than Robot Chicken, did any of the winners have either of these?), while “Brick Like Me” (the LEGO episode) didn’t get one.
