The slew of programming spurred by the events of Sept. 11 has resulted in a wide range of Emmy noms for programs related to the terrorist attacks.

“America: A Tribute to Heroes” — the pan-network telethon featuring appearance by big shots from all corners of the entertainment world — garnered six nominations, including outstanding variety, music or comedy program.

“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal, one of several scribes nommed for his work on the special, said he was “very proud” to have been associated with the project.

“I was a small part of it, but that really was a wonderful thing,” he said.

Two high-profile docs about the tragedy — HBO’s “In Memoriam: New York City, 9/11/01” and CBS’ “9/11” — earned five noms apiece, while VH1’s “Concert for New York City” snagged two.

Journalist-producer Linda Ellerbee was also honored for her “Nick News Special Edition,” which focused on the children of Afghanistan.

And in a classic Emmy twist, Comedy Central laffer “South Park” grabbed a nomination that was at least partially related to Sept. 11. Toon is up for an animated-series statuette for an episode dubbed “Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants.”
