CBS, NBC, PBS top news, docu Emmys

PBS' 'Living Edens' wins five, NBC's 'Dateline' tallys four

NEW YORK — CBS, NBC and PBS shared an equal portion of the spotlight at Wednesday’s 19th annual News and Documentary Awards as each web took home 10 statuettes.

Among the commercial nets, the only program which came close to achieving juggernaut status was the Peacock’s multinight newsmag series “Dateline NBC,” which won four Emmys, including two for coverage of a breaking news story.

The Discovery Channel was the night’s runner-up in terms of total Emmys won, picking up five, while ABC finished the night with four awards. Cinemax and MSNBC won three, with HBO and The Learning Channel snagging two apiece. A&E, CNN and TBS Superstation all won one Emmy.

Ironically, CBS — criticized a year ago for getting a slow start covering the death of Princess Diana — picked up three statuettes for its reporting on the Diana saga, with “The CBS Evening News With Dan Rather Weekend Edition,” “CBS News Sunday Morning” and a CBS News special on Di’s death all getting nods from Emmy voters. “Sunday Morning” won two other Emmys, bringing its total to three statuettes.

The most-honored program overall was PBS’ “The Living Edens,” winner of five Emmys, including three for outstanding music.

NBC’s “Today” was the only weekday ayem show to snag an Emmy, capturing a craft award for its electronic camerapersons.

The awards were handed out during ceremonies held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan.
