American girl Julianna Rose Mauriello, who plays Stephanie in LazyTown, has been nominated for the prestigious Emmy TV award 2006.
The nomination is in the category of children’s play and LazyTown is one of the most popular and well-known children’s shows on American television. The results will be announced at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on April 28, 2006. “This is a huge milestone on our way to the top. This is a happy day for LazyTown” says Kjartan Már Kjartansson at LazyTown. “This occasion applies to all children’s shows in the United States, which are shown from two at night to six at night. Sesame Street is with us in the category and it has been shown for decades. The fact that we have joined this group immediately is a great recognition for LazyTown and for Julianna” he says.
It should be noted that not long ago LazyTown received the first prize for dubbing in German at a festival held in Germany on the 27th of January, 2006.
Filming for a new series about LazyTown will begin in Iceland in the middle of this month, and preparations have been in full swing recently. Eighteen episodes will be recorded and they will be added to the 35 episodes that have been shown in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
