2015 Emmy Award logo

We were excited to learn today that the Independent Lens film The Great Invisible, which aired on PBS in April, was just nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Exceptional Merit for Documentary Filmmaking. Kudos to director Margaret Brown and her whole team for the honor. The Hollywood Reporter called The Great Invisible “a powerful documentary that reminds those of us who’ve moved on to other worries that [the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill] is far from finished.”

Emmy winners will be revealed September 20. A full list of all nominees is here
