And the winner is...


We won! We won!

It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Did I mention that WE WON!!!

The whole experience is kinda surreal. Well for me at least. They call your name (in our case they called "The Team From Smallville") everyone jumps up screaming, you are rushed up onto the stage, there is 3,000 people clapping & smiling at you, then you are ushered back stage for a million pictures and a quick interview. Obviously everyone you are surrounded by is smiling and people are congratulating you everywhere you look. It really can make you feel something special. Not to mention the real celebrities that are mingling all around. I would have to say that Tom Hanks was the biggest of my up close celebrity spottings. Seth Green, Jenna Fischer, Tim Conway, Sarah Silverman, Kathy Griffith and Ashley Tisdale were among the few famous faces we stood near trying to look like we knew what we were doing...Haha.

Then the real party begins. The Ball is even more spectacular. The theme this year was Diamonds so there were lit crystal balls hanging everywhere amidst the black velvet and hot pink decor. Two live bands play music throughout the night and people dance and drink the night away. I'm sure it was even that much more exciting to be sitting at the table filled with Emmy's rather than if we would have lost.

**Thank you to Mike Lawshe (who will never see this but still) for recognizing the work I do and thinking of me when extra tickets came available.
**The biggest Thank You goes to Chris McGeary who brought me into this crazy industry. I am so thankful for you mentoring me, ultimately getting me to this point where I am able to share such a special award with you. Thank you!!

Side note...We attended the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy's....not the one you would normally watch on TV. They split the award show into 2 nights. All the big awards people really care about and then us... The behind the scenes people. :) The Creative Arts Emmy's will air on Saturday the 20th on E!. I think they said 5 pm or maybe 8 pm. The category we were nominated in will be about 2/3 the way thru the ceremony (in case you care) and is listed as Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series.

That is so awesome! So cool that you got to go! Glad you had such a fantastic time. And that you won!:)

Jaime said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask if you get to keep that statue? Or is it for the person that couldn't go? If it's yours, where will you keep it?

Laura said...

Jenny, I'm so proud of you. I could cry. So cool that you have a tangible token or recognition for the work that you do. Why does Tony have an Emmy too? Is that the perk of being your hubby? j/k.

Stephanie said...

Yippee! I was thinking about you this weekend, and wondering how the event turned out for you! That's great news. What an amazing experience. I wondered the same as Angie with Tony's Emmy!!!

Your dress is wonderful, and you got that haircut squeezed in? Looks like a fresh cut ;)

Great job!

There was another guy on our team that decided not to come so we had an extra Emmy to take home to him. It made for a pretty fun night :)
