Star Trek: Enterprise won Emmy Awards last night for Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Music Composition (Dramatic Underscore), taking home trophies in two of the three categories in which it was nominated.
StarTrek.com posted photos and a report on the triumph, which comes a year after the series was shut out at the Emmys, winning no trophies. The Creative Arts Awards, which pay tribute to technical achievements, art and casting, were given out last night; the main acting and writing awards will be presented this coming Sunday.
Enterprise earned two nominations this year in the visual effects category. A nine-member team for "Countdown" defeated the team for "The Council" for that prize. Ronald B. Moore and the crew accepted the award for Enterprise, which defeated the pilot of Dead Like Me, Stargate SG-1's "Lost City Part 2" and Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital's "Thy Kingdom Come." Moore said, "I'm not worthy...I'm here because of the gentleman behind me," indicating visual effect producer Dan Curry.
Velton Ray Bunch was honoured for his score for "Similitude", also defeating the pilot of Dead Like Me, Line Of Fire, Pandemic: Facing AIDS, The Simpsons and 24. The composer acknowledged Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) for his loyalty, for Bunch had received prior Emmy nominations for Quantum Leap and Papa's Angels, both Bakula shows.
Perennial nominee Michael Westmore was nominated for Outstanding Makeup for a Series, Miniseries, Movie or a Special (Prosthetic) for "Zero Hour" but lost to a Trek alumnus, Nip/Tuck's James MacKinnon.
Carnivàle, which had the most technical awards of the evening - bringing in five trophies for HBO - is also headed by a Trek alumnus, Ronald D. Moore.
As reported elsewhere, William Shatner (Captain Kirk) won an Emmy Award for a guest role on The Practice. The Creative Arts Awards presentation will be broadcast this Saturday night, September 18th, on E!, one night before the Primetime Emmys on ABC, where Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard) will compete as executive producer of the remake of The Lion in Winter.
