Posted by : Robert Child Friday
New York, N.Y. – July 12, 2012 – Nominations for the 33rd Annual News and Documentary Emmy® Awards were announced yesterday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). The News & Documentary Emmy® Awards will be presented on Monday, October 1 at a ceremony at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located in the Time Warner Center in New York City. The Wereth Eleven earned a nomination in the promotion category for our compelling trailer that editor and co-exec. producer Frederic Lumiere and I labored over for at least three 18 hour sessions. I remember quite well finishing this trailer around 1AM in the morning and Frederic and I both toasted it's completion with a beer (maybe two). It is very gratifying that our work has been recognized as among the very best by industry standards and I believe this will bring even more attention to the film.
Statement from NATAS:
"The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is delighted to honor the outstanding work being done by journalists and documentarians throughout the television industry,” said Malachy Wienges, Chairman, NATAS. "In addition, we are pleased to be honoring Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas, the co-anchors of Univision’s nightly newscast, with our prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. We are happy to highlight their work which represents the very best in news reporting.”
