Emmy Nods Again

KABC-TV crushed the competition in the area Emmy Awards nominations released April 18.

The o& o got 45 out of 223 bids: 22 for news, 18 for programming such as “Eye On L.A.,” “A.M. Los Angeles” and Chuck Henry specials, and five for graphics. Last year, KABC collected 37 nods to take second place.

Pubcaster KCET, which captured the most Emmys at last year’s awards ceremony, was the runnerup with 33 nominations.

KCAL was close behind with 32 noms. The Disney-owned station mustered only 15 nominations last year. KCBS-TV, the Emmy nomination leader the past few years, saw its total fall to 30 from 39 a year ago.

Back in the pack were KTTV with 21; KTLA, 17; KNBC-TV, 15 (compared with 35 in 1990), and KCOP, 11.

Four nods went to KDOC, three to Cityscope and two each to KLCS and KOCE. With one nomination each were Cencom, City-TV, Continental, Spanish-language KMEX-TV and United Cable.

The only two stations to receive Emmy nominations for best 30-minute news were KCBS’ 6 p.m. program and KMEX’ “Noticentro 34.”

Nominations for regularly scheduled 60-minute newscast as well as camera crew for news features will be announced next month.

The 43rd annual local Emmy ceremony will be held May 18 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
