Honors for Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (One Hour) and Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series contribute to a total of five Emmys won by Society members this year.
The fifth and final night of the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys took place on Saturday, September 19, recognizing nominees in 30 categories. During this televised ceremony on FXX, M. David Mullen, ASC won the Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (One Hour) for his work in the Amazon Studios series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel episode “It’s Comedy Or Cabbage.” (Five other awards for expert cinematography were previously presented.)
The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony took place on Sunday, September 20, honoring artists in 23 categories — just a fraction of the 123 categories recognized by the Television Academy. During this televised ceremony on ABC, Andrij Parekh, ASC was presented with the Emmy for Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series for his work in the HBO series Succession episode “Hunting.”
This was the first Emmy nomination and win for Parekh, and the third nomination and second win for Mullen, all for his work on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Both filmmakers participated in our Clubhouse Conversation interview series, with Mullen discussing his work in Maisel with ASC President Stephen Lighthill:
