Congrats to the 8 Film Independent Members Nominated for Emmys


It’s clear from the heated Emmy debates in the cubicles around here that it’s been a spectacular year for storytelling on the small screen (Cranston v. Hamm! McConaughey v. Harrelson! House of Cards v. True Detective!) Celebrating great new work by innovative artists is woven into Film Independent DNA, so we’re always excited to see who’s nominated for the big TV and film awards and then root for our faves. And yes, admittedly, we’re biased towards our Members. So we’re proud to announce that this year, eight Film Independent Members are nominated for Emmys. (Two of them, Sheila Nevins and Nancy Abraham at HBO, have two nominations each.)

Wish them luck!
