2014 Governors Award will be presented at the Creative Arts Emmys; “Saturday Night Live,” “The Simpsons” win early Emmys in juried categories

Veteran casting director Marion Dougherty will posthumously receive the 2014 Governors Award from the Television Academy at the Aug. 24 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the Academy announced on Thursday.

Dougherty’s pioneering work in the casting industry made her the subject of the 2012 Emmy-nominated documentary “Casting By,” which premiered on HBO. She began serving as a casting director in 1949 with the NBC series “Kraft Television Theatre” and worked on shows that included “Naked City,” “Route 66″ and “All in the Family.”

Dougherty, who was among the early champions for such actors as Robert Duvall, Warren Beatty and Jack Lemmon, died in 2011 at the age of 88.
