News & Documentary Emmy Awards Nominees Announced

Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced the nominees for the 30th annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards.  Awards will be given in 33 categories, because with the Emmy's, everyone is a winner!  Actually, that's not true, but at a whopping 33 categories, it's impressive to see NATAS acknowledge the depth and diversity of the news and documentary genre. 

In case you are wondering (and you can check the list for yourself), PBS leads all networks with 41 nominations while CBS sits at a distant number 2 with 23.  As you can guess, the list is long enough to rival War & Peace, but if you have the time, I suggest checking it out because there are certainly some documentary gems to discover.  Beyond the plethora of nominations, CNN Productions will be honored with the President's Award for its documentary production.

The Emmy award presentations occur Monday September 21, so you have plenty of time to scour the list before the winners are announced.
