Broadcasters Lead the Way at News and Documentary Emmy Awards

Last night the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handed out this year’s News and Documentary Emmy Awards. The broadcast networks, led by CBS, NBC, PBS and ABC, led the way with a combined 20 wins. The only cable news channel to take home an award was CNBC for its “Inside the Mind of Google” special.

CBS led the pack with seven wins, four for newsmagazine “60 Minutes” and three for the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.”

NBC News took home six Emmys, two for the “Inside the Obama White House” special, two for “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams,” one for “Dateline” and one for “Today.”

PBS took home five awards, two for “Frontline,” two for “Bill Moyers Journal,” one for Frontline/World and one for P.O.V.

ABC News took home two Emmys, one for its coverage of President Obama’s inauguration, and the other for Diane Sawyer‘s 20/20 special on “Children of the Mountains.”

One person who did not win: Former CBS News “48 Hours Mystery” producer Joe Halderman, who attempted to extort late night talk show host David Letterman. Halderman was nominated for a story he worked on related to the Amanda Knox trial. In fact, someone in attendance at the awards ceremony tells TVNewser that Halderman’s name was absent from the official program, even though he was the lead producer on the hour that was nominated.

The full list of winners is after the jump.
