  1. How many nominations did FOX News Get?

  2. Be serious!

  3. Hi Digital Guy. Hi Lindy. Actually it’s a good question. Fox News has not submitted any of its work for consideration for the News and Documentary Emmys for a number of years.
    Here’s a news report from the Los Angeles Times back on July 19, 2006: “The reason Fox News Channel doesn’t participate in the News & Documentary Emmys is because, well, back when they did enter segments for nominations, they got snubbed.”
    The article continued, “In 2003, a FNC spokesman expressed ire over not being nommed, including for the network’s coverage of Sept. 11, [2001,] telling Variety, ‘We’ve submitted news pieces year after year, and when we didn’t get nominated for any of the work we produced during our country’s most prolific crisis . . . we knew it was time to end our participation in the news Emmys. We took the proactive approach.’ ”
