Four Irish crew members of the Showtime TV series ‘The Tudors’ have received Emmy nominations for their work on the hit series, which filmed in Ireland last year. Irish/American actor Aidan Quinn has also received a Supporting Actor nomination for his work on ‘Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee’.

Irish production designer Tom Conroy has been nominated for Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series prize; casting directors Nuala and Frank Moiselle have been nominated for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, and Joan Bergin is up for an award in the Best Costume category. Costume department assistants Jessica O’Leary and Ger Scully were also mentioned in this nomination.

Irish American actor Aidan Quinn has also received an Outstanding Supporting Actor nomination for his role as Senator Henry Dawes in the HBO TV movie ‘Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee’. This is Quinn’s second Emmy nomination, having received his first in 1985 for ‘An Early Frost’. The actor is up against Thomas Haden Church (Broken Trail), Joe Mantegna (The Starter Wife), Edward Asner (The Christmas Card) and his ‘Wounded Knee’ co-star August Schellenberg who played Sitting Bull in the movie. ‘Wounded Knee’ topped the overall list of Emmy nominations with 17 nods in total.

Tom Conroy, whose previous credits include ‘East is East’ and ‘The Most Fertile Man in Ireland’, is up against nominees from TV series including ‘Ugly Betty’, ‘Rome’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Deadwood’. No stranger to award ceremonies, the production designer received IFTA nominations for his work on Irish films ‘Intermission’, ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ and ‘Inside I’m Dancing’. He shares his Emmy nomination with Alan Gilmore, Art Director, and Eliza Solesbury, Set Decorator.

Joan Bergin has worked as a costume designer on many high-profile films including ‘In the Name of the Father’, ‘Reign of Fire’ and most recently ‘The Prestige’, starring Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman. She has previously received an Emmy nomination for her work on TV series ‘David Copperfield’, in 2000.

The Moiselles have also worked as casting directors on many projects filmed on location in Ireland including ‘How about You’, ‘Veronica Guerin’, and ‘Goldfish Memory’. Nuala Moiselle picked up an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Irish Cinema’ award at this year’s IFTAs. ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’, ‘Brothers and Sisters’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Friday Night Lights’ also vie for this top award.

'The Tudors' fourth Emmy nomination was received by Canadian-born composer Trevor Morris, in the Original Main Title Theme Music.
