24/7 HBO Series Nominated for Three Emmy Awards
Today, it was announced that the HBO series was nominated for 3 Emmy Awards. The categories were Outstanding Edited Sports Special, Outstanding Post Produced Audio/Sound and the Dick Schaap Writing Award. It sounds like a really nice achievement given that this is the first venture into production like the 24/7 series.
The most sports broadcasts to recieve nominations were ESPN's(Disney) showing of the FIFA World Cup with 12 nominations and NBC Universal with the XXI Winter Olympics at 11 nominations. So, that just puts things into perspective.
I can't really gage weather this success will encourage the league to promote the game more in this fashion, but I would definitely say that this doesn't hurt either.
