Man with local ties up for Golden Globe awards

A Hollywood producer with ties to Whitehall has been nominated for two Golden Globes for a mini-series he co-produced.

Darrell Fetty was one of several producers of the History Channel’s widely popular “Hatfields and McCoys” miniseries, which aired over the course of three days on Memorial Day weekend.

The show drew a record 13.9 million viewers and garnered 16 Emmy nominations, taking home five of the golden statuettes.

On Sunday, Jan. 13, the miniseries will look to add to that tally. The show has been nominated for “Best Mini Series or Motion Picture made for Television,” as well as “Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini Series or Motion Picture made for Television” for co-star Kevin Costner’s portrayal of William Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield.

Fetty, who was born in West Virginia, is married to Joyce Ingalls, the daughter of JoAnn and the late Fredrick Ingalls of Whitehall.

Although the couple does not live in Whitehall, they visit each year and several of Ingalls’ siblings—David, Laura, and Leanne Ingalls and Carol Matheny—reside in the community.

A former actress and model, Ingalls said the couple will attend the awards ceremony with Costner and his family.

“Hatfields and McCoys” tells the story of William Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield and Randall McCoy, patriarchs of two Appalachian families who engaged in a brutal feud in the Tug Fork area of West Virginia and Kentucky after the Civil War. Costner and Bill Paxton played the lead roles in the series.

Besides serving as a producer, Fetty appeared on screen as the character Doc Rutherford and the couple’s son, Tyler F. Jackson (his stage name), also appeared in the series as Bud McCoy.

The Golden Globes will air on NBC at 8 p.m. on Jan. 13.
