“Like so many people around the world, I’ve loved the Bee Gees’ music all my life,” said Marshall about the film. “But it wasn’t until I did my first interview with Barry, almost three years ago, that I began to discover their uncanny creative instincts, their musical gifts, their humor, and the brotherhood and family that made them so unique. It’s been such an honor to be involved in this movie and celebrate the massive impact the Bee Gees have had on popular music.” The film was honored with the following awards: Outstanding Directing For A Documentary/Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Picture Editing For A Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Documentary Or Nonfiction Special; Outstanding Sound Editing For A Nonfiction Or Reality Program (Single Or Multi-Camera); Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Nonfiction Or Reality Program (Single Or Multi-Camera); Outstanding Writing For A Nonfiction Program.
Billie Eilish also received a number of nods for the documentary chronicling her massive rise, titled Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry. Along with intimate behind-the-scenes of Eilish at home and recording music, the film also shows her arrival on the world’s stage, when she took home a staggering five Grammy awards, including for Best New Artist and Song of the Year. At this year’s Emmy Awards, the film will be in the running for the following: Outstanding Picture Editing For A Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Music Direction; Outstanding Sound Editing For A Nonfiction Or Reality Program; Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Nonfiction Or Reality Program
