The Television Academy announced that iconic casting director Marion Dougherty will be posthumously awarded the 2014 Governors Award. Additionally, the Academy announced the juried award winners for outstanding costumes for a variety program or special and outstanding individual achievement in animation.

The Governors Award along with the juried awards will be presented during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Aug. 16.

Dougherty was a pioneer in the television casting industry. She is being recognized with the Governors Award for defining the role of the casting director, changing the profession for both television and film. Dougherty created a name for herself by breaking the mold of traditional casting. Instead of following the common practice of bringing in a large number of the same type of actors to read for a role, she would select three or four very different actors to provide the director with casting options and performers who could bring unique shadings to the roles. It was with this approach that Dougherty cast Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight, Martin Sheen, William Shatner, Christopher Walken, Robert Duval, Glenn Close and James Caan in some of their earliest roles.

She began her career in 1949 casting over 500 episodes of NBC’s Kraft Television Theatre. Her work for this program showcased many young and unknown performers who would go on to become some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Warren Beatty, James Dean, Jack Lemmon and Jack Klugman. Following her work on Kraft, Dougherty cast such popular shows as Naked City and Route 66. Dougherty established her own independent casting office and became renowned for her work in feature film. In 1971, she cast Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton in the pilot of the long-running series All in the Family.

Dougherty was the subject of the acclaimed and Emmy-nominated documentary Casting By which debuted on HBO in 2012.

Additionally, the Academy has selected the juried winners for the 66th Emmy Awards in the categories of outstanding costumes for a variety program or special and outstanding individual achievement in animation.

Juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in the peer group, with the possibility of one, more than one or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence, there are no nominees, but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include an open discussion of the work of each entrant, with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. At the conclusion of each deliberation, the jury votes on the question, “Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award – yea or nay?” Only those with unanimous approval win.

The winners are:
