Emmys nominees: Acad honors Showtime, CNN

Diversity, outstanding achievement rewarded

Cablers Showtime and CNN are the recipients of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 2001 Governors’ Award, which will be presented at the Creative Arts Awards ceremony Sept. 8 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

The kudo recognizes the achievements of a company or organization whose work stands out with the immediacy of current achievement.

CNN and Showtime are being recognized “for their innovative and positive programming,” says Meryl Marshall-Daniels, ATAS chairman and CEO.

Showtime is being honored for its diverse programming. Last year it bowed “Resurrection Blvd.,” a weekly hourlong drama that features a Latino cast; “Soul Food,” an African-American family drama based on the 1997 film of the same title; and “Queer as Folk,” about the gay cultural scene in Pittsburgh.

CNN, which debuted 20 years ago, changed TV news coverage by reporting events as they happen, where they happen and broadcasting worldwide 24 hours a day.
