CFCC alumni nominated for Primetime Emmy Award
Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) proudly announces that one of our alumni, Susan Russell, has been nominated for the prestigious Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Period Costumes for a Limited Series or Anthology Movie. Susan worked as a Costume Supervisor on the locally filmed George and Tammy set.
Susan has worked on sets in various costumer roles since 2011, when she served as a Costume Assistant Intern on the Heart of the Country set. She is best known for her costume work on The Originals, The Darkest Minds, Shaft, and Doom Patrol. This is Susan’sfirst Emmy nomination.
“We are so excited to see talented alumni like Susan Russell achieve such recognition on a global stage,” said Jim Morton, CFCC President. “This nomination exemplifies the high standard of education and practical experience our Film and Video Production Technology program provides.”
“I am thrilled and honored by this recognition and humbled to see my dedication to the craft acknowledged,” said Russell. “My journey through the CFCC film program has been invaluable, equipping me with the tools to bring stories to life on screen. The opportunity to return to my home state to pursue my passion has been a dream realized, and I am grateful to have had the chance to contribute to the art form I adore in the place where it all started for me.”
The Primetime Emmy Awards, organized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, is a prestigious event that celebrates excellence in the television industry. The Emmy Awards were initially scheduled for September 18 but have been postponed due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
The entire CFCC community sincerely congratulates Susan Russell for this outstanding accomplishment.
