ESPN and Fox shared bragging rights as the 41st annual Sports Emmys were handout out Tuesday night. They tied atop the network leaderboard with seven wins apiece. ESPN scored one more nod to lead all sports groups, as it came into the night with the most nominations (58) to Fox Sports Media Group’s 48. CBS’s coverage of the Masters won the marquee Outstanding Live Sports Special category, and the network also scooped the Outstanding Live Sports Series for its NFL on CBS.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said Friday that it is postponing the 41st annual Sports Emmy Awards and 71st annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards dinner, both of which had been scheduled for April. The organization said it will look to move both events to a later date this year, and comes as a reaction to the growing global coronavirus pandemic.
