Primetime Emmy Nominees Honored at FIDM Event
By Gina Silverstein, August 24, 2011
On Sunday, August 21st, the Fashion Institute of Costume Design (FIDM), in conjunction with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, hosted an afternoon soiree honoring Costume Designers and Costume Supervisors nominated for 2011 Primetime Emmys. In attendance were Costume Designers Janie Bryant and Lou Eyrich, who have been recognized for Outstanding Costumes for a Series on the hit shows “Mad Men” and “Glee,” respectively. Both have past nods, with Bryant garnering a 2004 win for her work on “Deadwood.” Other CDG-member nominees in the same category who couldn’t make the event are CDs John Dunn (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Gabriella Pescucci (“The Borgias”), as well as CDs Ann Roth (“Mildred Pierce”) and Suttirat Anne Larlarb (“Cinema Verite”), nominated in the Outstanding Costumes for a Miniseries, Movie or Special category.

Mary Rose, who serves as both CDG President and on the Board of Governors for the Academy, presented a certificate to Bryant and Eyrich during the cocktail reception, thanking them for their exceptional contributions in Costume Design for television. The outdoor plaza, adjacent to the FIDM Museum & Galleries, provided a delightful backdrop for this annual event, with more than 250 guests in attendance enjoying food, cocktails and picture-perfect Los Angeles weather during the ceremony.
Bryant and Eyrich were in good company at the occasion. Lending support on behalf of the CDG were Board Vice President, CD Van Broughton Ramsey, who knows a thing or two about the Primetime Emmy hot seat, having won for his work on the miniseries “Lonesome Dove”(1989) and “Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All” (1994), as well as CD Julie Weiss, who won Emmys for her work on “The Dollmaker” (1984) and “A Woman of Independent Means” (1995). Also spotted in the crowd of Academy and FIDM notables were CDG Executive Director Rachael Stanley and Board Member, CD Salvador Perez.
Next up for Bryant, Eyrich and their fellow nominees, is the big event itself – the Primetime Emmys. This year the Creative Arts segment, which includes Costume Design, will air on September 17th at 8:00 p.m. (PT) on ReelzNetwork.
