The NFL brings home a record of 39 Sports Emmy Awards Nominations

The NFL has been recording historical numbers recently. From the largest viewing of the NFL playoffs to potentially bringing home more Emmys than before, the NFL is doing a splendid job.



NFL Network's series NFL 360 earned a total of 12 nominations across several categories, which was the most nominations for a single program this year. NFL 360 earned two nominations in the categories of Outstanding Edited Special (Black History Month and Women in Football), Outstanding Long Feature (Kwity Paye: KWITY and Through the Ashes: The Story of Black Wall Street), Outstanding Camera Work – Long Form (Mark Pattison: Searching for the Summit and Solomon Thomas: Breathe) and Outstanding Editing – Short Form (Jonathan Allen: Alone and Ode to South Central).

Even NFL Films Hard Knocks for the Dallas Cowboys, earned five nods, tying the record for most nods in a single year. I can go on and on about the historical nominations that the NFL has received, but ya'll did not come here to read my commentary on who won what. So instead, here is the list of nominations.
