FRONTLINE Receives Six Emmy Nominations


Five FRONTLINE films and a video campaign (above) were nominated for News & Documentary Emmy Awards today, on topics ranging from the oil spill in the gulf to false confessions. You can watch each film from our website. Here's the complete list:

The Quake: The film bears witness to the scale of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and takes viewers on a searing and intimate journey into the camps, hospitals and broken neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince. Featuring never-before-seen footage of the moments after the earthquake and interviews with top officials from Port-au-Prince to Washington, The Quake ultimately asks, how will the world respond? (Nominated for Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story -- Long Form.)

The Wounded Platoon: The story of the Third Platoon, Charlie Company: What happened to them in Iraq, and what happened to them when they came home? (Nominated for Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story -- Long Form.)

Law & Disorder: A joint investigation with ProPublica and the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Law & Disorder investigates six cases of questionable police shootings by the New Orleans Police Department in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. (Nominated for Outstanding Investigative Journalism -- Long Form.)

The Confessions: How could four men could confess to a brutal crime that they didn't commit. The Confessions goes inside the incredible saga of the Norfolk Four -- a case that cracks open the justice system to reveal almost everything that goes wrong when innocent people get convicted. (Nominated for Outstanding Informational Programming -- Long Form.)

The Spill: A joint investigation by FRONTLINE and ProPublica into the trail of problems -- deadly accidents, disastrous spills, countless safety violations -- which long troubled the oil giant, BP. The Spill explores whether the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico could have been prevented. (Nominated for Outstanding Business and Economic Reporting -- Long Form.)

Additionally, FRONTLINE's Fall Image Campaign "Times Like These" was nominated for Outstanding Promotional Announcement: Institutional. PBS received 32 nominations in total this year.
