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.

      Imagine, two car shows getting an Emmy nod. 20 years ago... hardly! Jerry is starting to look like Groucho these days. :-)

      I wish I could say that I'm a fan of either of these series. I've tried, but Leno tends to come across flat and uninteresting...and while there are some eps of CICGC that induced a chuckle or two, it heavily depends on the guest Jerry gets. I find most to be rather ho-hum, to be honest.

      I like both shows. I would like more if Jay did a couple long term deals with a cable channel to do a restore/mod show with one car from start to finish kinda like the old PBS show with Bob Sears Last Chance Garage were it took seemed to take year but it went through every choice.
