'Hard Knocks' nabs three Emmys
Here are the winners of the 32nd Sports Emmys, awarded Monday night, a ceremony that featured a Lifetime Achievement Award for former Newsday paper boy Al Michaels.
HBO's "Hard Knocks" nabbed three awards, another big moment for Rex Ryan in the middle of his week-long media blitz/book tour.
Other winners included Doc Emrick for play-by-play, Cris Collinsworth for game analyst, Kirk Herbstreit for studio analyst and (Commack) Bob Costas for host.
It was a big night for NFL Films, which partnered with HBO on "Hard Knocks" and on "Lombardi," which won for best documentary.
NFL Network/NFL Films won for Outstanding Live Event Turnaround for "Sound FX: Cincinnati Bengals at New York Jets."
"Writing, painting, music – those are solitary endeavors,” NFL Films president Steve Sabol said. "But great television only happens through collaboration. That’s why everyone at NFL Films is proud to share these Emmys with our friends at HBO and our partners at NFL Network."
