The Sports Emmy Awards were handed out last night, and the totals went like this: NBC 10, HBO 8, ESPN 6, CBS 5, Fox 5, Fox SportsNet 3, TNT 2, ABC 1, NFL Network 1, Showtime 1. Those totals include some shared Emmys for talent appearing on two networks and shows produced by two and also add Web site awards for networks.
The on-air individuals honored:
Studio host: Bob Costas
Play by play: Jim Nantz
Studio analyst: Terry Bradshaw, Tom Jackson
Event analyst: Cris Collinsworth
A few comments: Good to see Jackson recognized. He has been the best thing about ESPN's NFL studio coverage for a long time. ... Bradshaw? Not so much. ... How about Jay Bilas for a share of the studio Emmy? ... You would expect to see NBC leading the way after an Olympic year.
