Thanks to its multiple collaborations with HBO and CBS/Showtime, NFL Films and NFL Network combined for four Sports Emmy Awards including three for the prestigious NFL Films.
The multimedia arm of the National Football League is one of the best in-house branches that documents every game of the league and archives them. One of these days, I’d love to visit the headquarters just to see the mountains of film stored. In any event, let’s take a look at the awards NFL Films and NFL Network won in New York last night.
