NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 12, 2017 – The Television Academy announced the winners of the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy® Awards this past weekend. Sue Pelino of Broadway Video and the sound mixing team won the award for Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Variety Series Or Special for their work on the 2017 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony that aired on HBO in April. Pelino served as re-recording mixer on the project.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Academy for our work on the 32nd annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Sue Pelino, Vice President of Audio Post Production, Broadway Video. “Our goal in preparing the televised package was to capture the true essence of the night. We wanted viewers to experience the energy and feel as if they were sitting in the tenth row of the Barclays Center. It’s a remarkable feeling to know that we have achieved that goal.”
Prior to this win, Pelino has received two Emmy awards and nine nominations. Her career as an audio post-production engineer rests on her early years playing guitar in rock bands and recording original songs in her home studio.
