CNN Wins 3 News & Documentary Emmys


CNN was awarded with three Emmys at the 34th Annual News and Documentary Awards.  CNN’s diverse recognitions of its journalism include:

Outstanding Live Coverage of a Current News Story – Long Form
Election Night in America
Seven CNN control rooms in three separate cities with hundreds of staffers worked together to tell the story of the election in a blockbuster broadcast symphony. In addition to getting the votes first, CNN also got the analysis right, with John King at the "Magic Wall" to put reporting expertise on display with a visual tool that out each precinct's fight in geographic and political perspective. 

Outstanding News Discussion and Analysis
Anderson Cooper 360 - Kids On Race: The Hidden Picture
Race is one of the most explosive issues in America, and for many adults the most taboo to talk about. But simply not talking about it does not solve any of the issues and that is what the project aimed to do -- get kids and their parents to talk about race and to look to this younger generation to see how far we've really come.

Outstanding Writing
Nick Paton Walsh: Reports from Syria and Afghanistan
Nick Paton Walsh's poetic writing contrasts with the sobering environments from which his stories are usually drawn. His reports punch through the daily accounts of wounded and dead, and give us a fresh way to see the grinding pitilessness of war, and it's quirky inconsistencies. 

In addition to these News and Documentary Emmy Awards, Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown was awarded with two Primetime Creative Arts Emmys in a ceremony in Los Angeles last month.

Congrats to CNN! Funny coincidence, I wrote a comment in the previous blog post, about Election night in America saying that I noticed tonight during a live Jake Tapper special that the wall dividing the Washington studios has opened up making me wonder if CNN will be going all out for an off year election, bringing back the Election Center. I can't believe it's already October. The only major election I know going on this year though is the New Jersey gubernatorial election. Chris Christi is a big name as a possible 2016 presidential contender, so they may be wanting to make a big deal of this.
