One broadcast took home five Sports Emmys as the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handed out the 39th Annual Sports Emmy Awards.
Leading the pack was CBS’s telecast of the AFC Championship with five Emmys, followed by a three-way tie among CBS’s “118th Army-Navy Game,” ESPN’s “College GameDay” and Fox and FS1’s “NASCAR on Fox,” with each program bringing home three Emmys.
CBS also came out on top in total awards by network with eight, followed by Fox with six, ESPN with five, NBC with four and a tie between FS1 and MLB Network with three apiece. ESPN2 and HBO each claimed two of the total of 40 awards that were presented.
By network group, ESPN led the way with 10 Sports Emmys. The group includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, ESPNews, WatchESPN and ABC. CBS’s eight Emmys were still good for second place, ahead of Fox Sports Media Group (Fox and FS1) and NBC Sports Group (NBC, NBCSN, Golf Channel and Telemundo), tied for third with six apiece.
