PBS gets 30 News Emmy nods


PBS took over the lead as the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced nominees for its 15th annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards earlier this week.

PBS snagged 30 nominations while ABC earned 21. CBS took 20 nominations and NBC got 13. Fox trailed with two nominations.

Turner Broadcasting doubled last year's eight nominations for 16 this go-round.

CNN earned nine nominations, followed by Discovery Channel's six, A&E;'s three, and HBO's two. Lifetime picked up one nomination -- Linda Ellerbee's "Ms. Smith Goes to Washington."

And there was a rare nomination in syndication: "Hard Copy" was nominated in the category Individual Achievement in a Craft: Graphic Designer for the opening and internal graphics on that show.

Fox's canceled prime-time newsmagazine, "Front Page," snagged two nominations -- the network's only hopefuls for this year's competition.

A total of 124 nominations in 28 areas were selected by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Winners will be announced at a black-tie event at the Plaza Hotel in New York on Sept. 8.
