FRONTLINE Nominated for 14 Emmy Awards
FRONTLINE, the acclaimed PBS investigative series, has earned 14 News and Documentary Emmy Award nominations for a range of films exploring pivotal domestic and international issues, from chaos in Iraq and Yemen, to solitary confinement in America, to Vladimir Putin’s grievances against the U.S.
The 2018 nominations were announced today by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. FRONTLINE’s 14 nods, which contributed to PBS’s total of 45, included two nominations for Putin’s Revenge (one of them in the prestigious Best Documentary category), and two nominations each for three separate documentaries on Iraq: Battle for Iraq, Iraq Uncovered and Mosul.
“At FRONTLINE, we are devoted to telling the tough stories that shape our time, and it is an honor to see our journalism recognized in this way,” says FRONTLINE Executive Producer Raney Aronson-Rath. “We are grateful to PBS, CPB and WGBH for supporting both our reporting and our mission, and proud to be nominated alongside so many of our colleagues in public media.”
The 39th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards will take place on October 1. FRONTLINE has won 89 Emmy Awards to date.
