voice over talent mary mckitrick wins an emmy

I think she is the first person I know in real life to win an Emmy.

Female voice over talent Mary McKitrick is an Emmy Award winner.

The 2011 Emmy was awarded May 15th for Best Audio in the nature series “Wild View – Journey to a Wondrous World”. Mary was the series narrator.

Now she may tell you that she did not win the Emmy because they don’t give Emmy’s for voiceover. She is, to put in daintily, full of crap. A narrator is a vital part of every documentary that…has a narrator. Without Mary’s performance, I believe, there may not have been a Best Audio Emmy!

I am giddy like a school girl for my friend and her Emmy and I hope you’ll take a moment to watch the show and then share your good wishes with Mary.

  1. Peter, you are too kind!

    The narration is definitely part of the audio – but I just say that my voice did not cause the film to lose its chance of winning an Emmy for audio!

    But I think this is a cause we should all take up with our regional chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. There are Emmys for on-camera hosts – they don’t lump those guys in with “photography” so I don’t think we can lump VO in with audio either. Maybe someday the likes of us can take those cool statues home as well.

    Take care my friend!


  2. […] for a gig but was pleased to hear from him none the less) about Mary McKitrick’s EMMY-less EMMY win. He read my blog post and it really bugged Erik (as a voice talent and as Mary’s agent too) […]
