Leap man Danny Crowley is still figuring out where to put the Emmy he won in LA at the weekend

LEAP man Danny Crowley is still figuring out where to put the Emmy he won in LA at the weekend. 

Danny got the top honours, the equivalent of an Oscar, for his sound-mixing work on the world famous HBO series Game of Thrones. 

The gold statuette is currently residing on his kitchen table, but Danny’s sure he’ll figure out a more permanent spot for it in his West Cork home!

Describing the win as ‘pretty amazing,’ it wasn’t something Danny or any of the sound team had expected. 

He attended the star-studded ceremony with his partner Emily, and speaking from his home in Leap, where he lives next door to parents John and Maureen, he said:  ‘We assumed that because the series was over, that something else would be promoted, so the win was a bit of a shocker.’

Potential projects in the pipeline include a prequel to Game of Thrones, set 5,000 years before the current series, and another HBO series based in Victorian times. 

Meanwhile, the latest film by  Schull-born and bred Mike Ahern will be in Bantry cinema from Friday. Extra Ordinary has already received critical acclaim and has been described as a comedic highlight of the year.
