Sheridan Alumnus Earns two Emmy Nominations
Renowned Sound Editor Craig Henighan (Media Arts ’95) has earned two Emmy nominations for his work on the hit Netflix television series Stranger Things.
Nominees for the 72nd Emmy Awards, which recognize excellence in the television industry, were announced on July 28.
Henighan was part of the teams to be nominated in the categories of Outstanding Sound Editing For a Comedy or Drama Series and Outstanding Sound Mixing For a Comedy Or Drama Series – both for his work on the third season of Stranger Things.
Previously, Henighan won two Emmys in the category of Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series for his work on the first and second season of Stranger Things.
“Part of doing sound work is being an illusionist,” Henighan said after his 2017 win. “You want to create a world. That’s what’s cool with Stranger Things – when you create the world, and you support the visual effects, and the sound design supports the story, people watching just automatically get sucked into it.”
Henighan’s worked on dozens of feature films, including Black Swan, Deadpool, 13th and Hidden Figures. In 2019, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his Sound Mixing work on Roma.
“Craig Henighan is a prolific sound editor and designer, whose work has been heard by audiences around the world,” says Dr. Janet Morrison, Sheridan’s President and Vice Chancellor. “It’s evident that Craig handles every project with precision and care. He’s a true inspiration to our current students, and I’m thrilled to congratulate him on his nominations.”
The Emmy Award winners will be announced on September 20.
