Warner Bros. Studios teams received three of the five nominations in the “Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series” category. A team led by supervising sound editor Walter Newman received a nomination for their work on an episode of ER. Newman, whose credits include The West Wing and Third Watch, has accumulated five Emmys throughout his sound editing career.
Two teams led by supervising sound editor Michael E. Lawshe also received nominations in the “Outstanding Sound Editing For a Series” category — one for work on an episode of Smallville, the other for the Supernatural pilot. Lawshe, who has also worked on such shows as The O.C. and Malcolm in the Middle, led a team that last year received an Emmy nomination in the same category, also for Smallville.
And re-recording artists Charlie McDaniel and Kathy Oldham received a nomination for “Outstanding Multi-Camera Sound Mixing for a Series or Special” for their work on Two and a Half Men. They both received Emmy Awards in 2005 for their work on the show.
Oldham also received an Emmy in 2003 for Everybody Loves Raymond.
