This past week, POV received a record 16 nominations for the 33rd Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards, including four of the five nominations in the Best Documentary category. Four films garnered nominations in multiple categories and, in total, PBS programs earned 37 nominations — with ITVS collecting nearly a dozen, along with a Primetime nomination for an Independent Lens program. “The films that the News & Documentary Emmys honor today with nominations represent some of the most creative voices in nonfiction film,” said Simon Kilmurry, Executive Producer of POV. “For POV programs to receive 16 nominations during our 25th anniversary season highlights why documentaries have become such an important part of our culture.”
“Documentaries are a reflection of our times,” added Cynthia Lopez, Co-Executive Producer of POV. “These nominations indicate how conflict at home and abroad, the role of soldiers and veterans as our global ambassadors and the struggle for identity are all vital content for understanding our world.” You can find a breakdown of the nominations, along with links to the films on POV’s website.
