Actor Brett Stimely to host the NATAS Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards

Brett Stimely, known for his accurate portrayals of President John F. Kennedy, will host the 41st NATAS Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards in Palm Springs.

Brett Stimely

Stimely’s performance in the film “Watchmen” stuck in the mind of “Transformer’s: Dark of the Moon”director Michael Bay, who said, “Get me the same guy who played Kennedy in Zach Snyder’s movie.” Brett procured praise from Ethel Kennedy herself, when she expressed appreciation for how he portrayed the president. The film “Kill the Dictator” added to his national recognition, but it was with Tom Hank’s “Parkland”, where Brett was able to work alongside Oscar winners Billy Bob Thornton and Marcia Gay Harden, and Oscar nominees Paul Giamatti, Jackie Earle Haley and Jacki Weaver.

The actor wrote, produced and starred in his multiple-award winning production of the film “Ray Bradbury’s Kaleidoscope” (the film that inspired Oscar nominee “Gravity”). He is now in pre-production on his next feature film where he’ll star as “The Champion.”

This year’s NATAS-PSW Emmy Awards will be held Saturday June 20 at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage .

Congratulations to all the nominees!  Click here for a PDF: 2015 Nominee List

Thank you to all our Nomination Party partners, Charcoal House, Jackalope Ranch, and Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar!

Be sure to purchase your tickets for the Emmy Awards Gala on Saturday, June 20th.

Below are our rules for promoting your nomination.

PROMOTION:  All publicity, advertising or any written reference undertaken by nominees and award recipients to the Emmy® Awards, must clearly state that the awarded achievement is for a Regional Emmy® Award. The word “Regional” must appear in these instances. The recipient of a nomination or an Emmy® Award may refer in advertising and publicity to the fact that they have been honored only for one year after the recognition was bestowed. They may use a replica of the Emmy® statuette in such advertising. Individuals who significantly contributed to the production or craft but were not honored with a statuette cannot specifically advertise they are an Emmy® award recipient. They can only state they worked on the recognized program.

STUDENT PRODUCTIONS:  Students are not considered peer professionals and as such, their regional student productions are not eligible for Emmy® award recognition. Student award recipients from any NATAS Chapters’ high school or college competitions may not use the Emmy® name or replica of the Emmy® figure in any form of commercial advertising or promotion for their recognition.
