HBO Max documentary “38 at the Garden” has received three nominations for the 44th annual Sports Emmy Awards.
The Jeremy Lin documentary chronicling his 2012 “Linsanity” season with the New York Knicks was nominated for outstanding short documentary, outstanding editing – long form and outstanding graphic design – speciality.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, documentary creator Frank Chi mentioned that the individual “38 at the Garden” team members who received nominations are Travon Free, Samir Hernandez, Bentley Weiner, James Pilott, Jesse Medalia Strauss and animator Miguel Hernandez.
Jeremy’s actual story is like “Bend it Like Beckham” on steroids. It’s those kinds of stories that once you have the opportunity to actually tell them, they mean so much to folks because it is something that we’ve always aspired to. We want somebody who shattered that ceiling.
Meanwhile, NBC’s coverage of the XXIV Olympic Winter Games and the NFL series “NFL 360” lead the nominee list with 10 nominations each.
The 44th annual Sports Emmy Awards will take place at New York City’s Frederick P. Rose Hall on May 22.
