Big news from our friends at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter (NATAS) today. So big, we’ve put it in “tweetable” form below for you to share away:
An alumnus of Chicago’s Second City Theater, Koechner got his first break as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and since has become an instantly recognizable face, appearing in more than 130 films and television shows. Additional notable film credits include Waiting, Out Cold, Talladega Nights, Get Smart, Extract, Thank You for Smoking and A Haunted House. When not filming, Koechner performs live stand-up comedy across the country and creates original content videos for his YouTube channel, Full On Koechner.
During the 2015 event, Emmy® Awards will be awarded in more than 90 television, production and creative communications categories. The full list of @RockyMtnEmmy nominees will be announced live on Sept. 10 during nominations parties in Phoenix, SaltLakeCity, Albuquerque, Tucson and Flagstaff. In Phoenix, the party will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Aunt Chilada’s, which is located at 7373 North Dreamy Draw Drive in Phoenix. The nominations event is free, and the entire media and communications community is welcome to attend.
“The Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards is not a competition in the traditional sense. Entries do not compete against each other. Rather, each is judged individually on its own merit against a standard of excellence,” said Theresa Maher, president of the Rocky Mountain Southwest chapter of NATAS. “There is no greater honor the Chapter can bestow on its members. The Emmy statuette symbolizes the excellence for which we all strive.”
Sponsorships are available. For more information about the Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards or to purchase tickets, please visit RockyMountainEmmy.org.
