The sound teams for several TV shows produced and presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 last season received 20 audio-related Emmy nominations for the upcoming 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, to be broadcast live on CBS Sunday September 18 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. This number is up from nine last year.
The number of episodic television programs with Dolby Digital 5.1 has increased significantly from last year, with CBS, Fox and NBC adding regularly scheduled episodic programming in Dolby Digital 5.1 in the 2004-2005 season. Networks such as ABC, HBO, and Showtime have been including Dolby Digital 5.1 audio with many of their original prime time programs and movies for several years.
Dolby Laboratories will host the Television Academy’s Sound Editing and Sound Mixing Nominees Reception at its Burbank, CA, facility this fall.
