'Hawaii Five-0' stunts, internment set nominated for Emmys

Three days into shooting its new season and the CBS drama "Hawaii Five-0" is already having a week to remember. The series was nominated for two Emmy Awards on Thursday, one for stunts and the other for visual effects.

Jeff Cadiente, the show's stunt coordinator, was nominated for a body of work, and a nine-person team led by John Hartigan, the "Five-0" special effects coordinator, was nominated for outstanding visual effects in a supporting role.

This is Cadiente's third nomination for work on "Five-0." He was nominated in 2011 and 2012.

Hartigan's team worked on an episode that was special to the cast and crew -- a look at the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and the internment of Japanese citizens that followed. "Five-0" shot an explosive scene on Ford Island and then recreated a World War II internment camp in a Wahiawa field that was accurate right down to the size of the guard tower.

Executive producer Peter Lenkov said he was ecstatic.

"I'm going to throw out all humility and say we deserve the noms," he said. "We have the best crew working in TV, so it's no surprise the voters recognize that too."

Actor Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Chin Ho Kelly on the show, also heaped praise on the production team.

"The Emmys don't often nominate crime procedurals like ours for awards, so it's an honor and a big thrill, especially since the nomination is for the episode that dealt with the Japanese internment, a subject that means a great deal to me," he said in a text message. "Those who follow me on social media though, already know I've been advocating award recognition for our stunt team for a while. I don't think there's another show on TV that does bigger stunts week in and week out than 'Hawaii Five-0.'"

The competition is tough in both categories.

The stunt category also includes "The Black List," "Grimm" and "Revolution" from NBC and "Game of Thrones" and "True Blood" from HBO.

The visual effects category also includes "Almost Human" and "Cosmos" from Fox, "Black Sails" and "Da Vinci's Demons" from Starz, "Mob City" from TNT, "Vikings" from the History Channel and "The Walking Dead" from AMC. 

The winners will be announced Aug. 25 on NBC.

Best K-Drama on the tube next to Grey's Anatomy, and with no sub-titles. The Korean Stars speak good Engrish too!

Why can't we use that internment camp set as a model for a homeless camp. Find a suitable location and build the homeless camp including the "guard tower". Provide food, shelter, security, and job guidance on site. Ban the feeding of homeless people except at this camp. Oh! by the way, good show Hawaii 5-0.
