It was the third Emmy nomination for García, his first one came last year for his work on the same TV series, and this year he was nominated for two awards, the second for Outstanding Sound Editing for Nonfiction Programming for the documentary History of the Eagles Part One.

García has built a solid film career working as sound designer, supervisor, and recordist with numerous directors both in Mexico and the United States including Alfonso Cuarón's Y Tu Mamá También (2002), Alex Rivera's Sleep Dealer (2008), Cary Fukunaga's Sin Nombre (2009) and Sebastián Silva's Magic Magic (2013), among others.

The 65th Annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards were held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last Sunday, September 15th. HBO's Behind the Candelabra won eight awards, followed by Boardwalk Empire which won four Emmys.
