Two of our favorite web series have been nominated for Emmy Awards in the Outstanding Short-Format Nonfiction category. Jay Leno's Garage and Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee are up for the prestigious awards, which will be handed out on August 25.
There are four other challengers in the category, including Park Bench with Steve Buscemi, ESPN's 30 For 30 Shorts, National Geographic's Cosmos: A Deeper Dive, and I Was There: Boston Marathon Bombings.
This is the second nomination for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which is in the midst of its fourth season. Leno, meanwhile, is no stranger to short-format Emmy recognition. This will mark JGL's sixth nomination, and it won the Outstanding Special Class – Short-Format Nonfiction Programs (the predecessor to today's category) in 2011.
