Television Academy Lauds Casting Director Marion Dougherty with Governors Award

Juried Emmy winners for costume design, animation unveiled

The late casting director Marion Dougherty will be awarded the Television Academy’s 2014 Governors Award.

Dougherty will be feted for her more than 50-year legacy as a casting director in film and television, starting with NBC’s “Kraft Television Theatre.” She is credited with coining the term “casting director” and for giving early breaks to such notables as Dustin Hoffman, William Shatner, Glenn Close and Christopher Walken.

Dougherty, who died in 2011, was the subject of the 2012 HBO docu “Casting By.”

The TV Academy also announced the juried award winners for outstanding costumes for a variety program or special and outstanding individual achievement in animation. These categories do not have nominations, and winners are voted on by a panel of specialists in the respective disciplines.
