Though the 60th GRAMMY Awards is just six months away, The Recording Academy is excited for another awards show: the 69th Annual Emmy Awards.
The Academy received three Emmy nominations for 2017: two for the 59th GRAMMY Awards and one for the CBS special celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, "Stayin' Alive: A GRAMMY Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees."
The 59th GRAMMYs earned nods for Outstanding Lighting Design Lighting Direction For A Variety Special and Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Variety Series Or Special.
"Stayin' Alive: A GRAMMY Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees" earned a nomination for Outstanding Music Direction under the helm of musical director Rickey Minor of "American Idol" fame.
The prior GRAMMY specials "Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life — An All-Star GRAMMY Salute," with musical direction from Greg Phillinganes, and "The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles," with musical direction by Don Was, each earned Emmys in the same category.
