While David Letterman Gets Emmy-Nomination Snub, His Blackmailer Receives Emmy Nomination for Producing Job on ’48 Hours Mystery’

Jul 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A week after David Letterman’s late-night talk show was snubbed for an Primetime Emmy Awards nomination, his blackmailer, Robert "Joe" Halderman, received such a nod among the News and Documentary Emmy Award nominations announced yesterday, reports Lisa de Moraes in the Washington Post

Halderman, who was fired by CBS News and is currently serving jail time after admitting he tried to blackmail Letterman for $2 million, was nominated for his producing work on a "48 Hours Mystery" story about U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox, who was found guilty of murder in an Italian court. Halderman is one of four producers nominated for the story, the article says.

Halderman had tried to extort money from Letterman in exchange for information he had collected about Letterman’s affairs with female staffers on the show. "It’s unclear whether, if Halderman wins, he’d be the first jailed national Emmy winner ever, but we think so," de Moraes writes. The awards for the News and Documentary Emmys will be given out on Sept. 27 in New York City.
