Friday Night Lights Wins Best Casting Emmy

by at . Comments

It may have been blanked from the major categories, but Friday Night Lights picked up an Emmy for best casting when the creative arts Emmy awards were bestowed Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Austin's Beth Sepko was honored for location casting, reports today's Austin American-Statesman, with Linda Lowy and John Brace both taking home Emmys for the show's primary casting.

This is nice, but ow a series can win best casting while no members of its cast receive individual Emmy nominations is beyond us. It makes zero sense.

The Leaders

Friday Night Lights' cast was universally snubbed.

Nevertheless, the Central Texas-filmed series, as it enters its sophomore season, should have received Emmy consideration for best drama series and several acting nods, but it got only two nominations, for casting and directing.

The Primetime Emmys will be handed out Sunday, September 16, with Friday Night Lights nominated for best directing in a drama series. Peter Berg, who adapted FNL for TV, and helmed the pilot, is up for the award.

For the best casting in a drama series award, Friday Night Lights beat Brothers & Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and The Tudors. Not bad for a show that earned high praise but low ratings its first season.
