Sean Callery 24 composer

Congratulations to Sean Callery who has won the 2010 Emmy for Best Musical Score in a Drama Series for the 24 series finale! This is Callery’s third Emmy win, the other two being Day 2: 10:00pm-11:00pm (George Mason’s farewell) and Day 5: 6:00am-7:00am (the Season 5 finale). Callery has been nominated for every season of the show and 24: Redemption. How about releasing another 24 soundtrack now, FOX?

24 nabbed another Emmy win for Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series for Day 8 4:00 AM – 5:00 AM (episode 13). The following people share the credit:

Much like Callery, the sound editing team are also repeat winners at the Emmys having previously won for Day 3: 12:00am-1:00am, Day 6: 10:00pm-11:00pm, and 24: Redemption. They were also nominated for Day 5: 9:00pm-10:00pm and Day 7: 10:00pm-11:00pm.

As for the other three nominations this year? Gregory Itzin lost out to Dexter‘s John Lithgow for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series, best stunt coordination went to ABC’s short-lived FlashForward, and best sound mixing went to FOX’s Glee.

The series has racked up an impressive 68 Emmy nominations during its run with 21 wins. As former 24 director Jon Cassar noted on his Twitter, the series has won at least one Emmy for every season it was on air.

Nope, it actually won Sound Editing for a Series as well.

The Emmy website took a while to update their winner list, but the Press Release mentioned 24’s second (and final) win.

Thanks for the heads up, Christian! When I posted this story that information wasn’t available yet. I have just updated the article to mention the second win.

You’re welcome!

I would have loved Itzin to win Guest Acting, but still getting 2 wins in its least-nominated season is still pretty huge.

Congrats to Sean!! Please become a fan of his page on facebook.


24: Redemption didn’t won an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing, it’s Generation Kill who won this trophee. So 24 won ‘only’ 20 Emmy Awards throughout its run.

24 won less Emmy Awards than the Sopranos (21 Emmy Awards) and The West Wing (25 Emmy Awards) but besides these two shows, there isn’t another drama who won more Emmys, right? 24 is the 3rd, impressive and totally deserved.

@Blurp – that’s interesting. I thought Sopranos and West Wing were way ahead of 24 in Emmy counts. Nice.

I also found out that this 24 *may* be the longest running series to have won at least one Emmy every year it was on.
