Production designer Derek McLane earned his sixth Primetime Emmy nomination on Thursday. McLane, whom The Gold Knight profiled for his award-winning work, has been nominated for every Oscar ceremony he's designed. He won an Emmy for his 2014 Oscars production design.
In the Outstanding Special Class Program category, The Oscars will compete for the Emmy win against The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, "Grease: Live," the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show and 69th Annual Tony Awards.
In the same category, The Oscars lost to "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (Live From Lincoln Center)" last year and the Tony Awards for five consecutive years before that.
Winners will be announced at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards show on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at 8 p.m. ET / PT, airing on FXX from The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Last year, The Oscars was nominated eight times and won one Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control, Limited Series, Movie Or A Special.
The 68th Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs live Sunday, September 18 (8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT) on ABC and will originate from The Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE) in Los Angeles. Don Mischer will serve as executive producer for the telecast.
