Four Sheridan alumni nominated for Emmys in casting and sound editing, including Stephanie Gorin, who earned her fifth nomination for casting the television series Fargo. She is joined by three other alumni who earned nods for sound editing. The 69th Emmy Nominations were announced on Thursday, July 13, 2017. The Emmys will be handed out on September 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

“Sheridan is extremely proud of its alumni who are being recognized for their outstanding work in television,” says Dr. Mary Preece, President and Vice Chancellor of Sheridan. “Our programs continue to produce graduates who are in demand and who contribute to top-rated programs across North America.”

Sheridan’s 69th Emmy nominated alumni are:

  1. Alex Bullick (Media Arts ’02) and Tyler Whitham (Media Arts ’06), both sound effects editors on the show Fargo, are nominated together in the category of Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited Series, Movie or Special.
  2. Stephanie Gorin (Music Theatre ’81) nominated for Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series, Movie or Special for her work on Fargo.
  3. Craig Henighan (Media Arts ’95) received a nomination for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series for Stranger Things.

For Stephanie Gorin, this nomination is another chance to be recognized for her work on Fargo. She also won an Emmy for best casting in 2014. Over her 26-year career, she has cast more than 200 television shows, movies, and musicals, including:

  1. the Tony Award-winning musical Come From Away,
  2. Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, and
  3. Mamma Mia.

Her other television credits include:

  1. the CBC/Netflix series Anne,
  2. an episode of the Netflix series Black Mirror directed by Jodie Foster, and
  3. Global’s Private Eyes.

Gorin credits her college education with giving her the skills to support actors during an audition, and to judge who is best suited for roles.

“If it wasn’t for the training I had at Sheridan College – how to prepare for an audition, how to bring a character to life, acting classes and scene development, even vocal lessons and dance – I wouldn’t have the skills to properly assess auditions for a variety of shows,” Gorin stated.


Three Sheridan alumni have been nominated for an Emmy for their work on “Fargo” by FX Networks.
