All in the Family
Alumni were well represented at the Emmys this year, garnering nominations and wins.
Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s All in the Family and The Jeffersons scored an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Live). It was the first Emmy award for executive producer Justin Theroux ’93 who helped bring the star- studded special to life. Theroux’s work on screen has also earned praise and attention this year. He starred in the American biographical drama, On the Basis of Sex, which was based on the life and early cases of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; co-starred in the all-star Netflix drama mini-series, Maniac, which was met with rave reviews; and was the voice of Tramp in Disney’s remake of Lady and the Tramp released in November 2019.
