News & Documentary Emmy Awards: Complete Winners List

HBO leads with 10 awards as PBS comes in second with 9

Last Updated: September 24, 2019 @ 11:03 PM

In a ceremony Tuesday night, the Television Academy announced the winners of the 2019 News & Documentary Emmy Awards.

HBO took home ten statues, the most of any single winner. Six of those wins were the result of HBO’s now defunct relationship with Vice: “Vice News Tonight,” which ended its run this month after being canceled by HBO in June.  (It will return on Viceland.) It took home five, while Vice Special Report took home one. The rest went to HBO Documentary Films.

PBS came in a close second with nine Emmys. Four went to “Independent Lens,” two to “Frontline,” two to “PBS News Hour” and one to “God Knows Where I Am.” And in third place was CBS with six Emmys: Five to “60 Minutes” and one won jointly by “48 Hours” and “CBS This Morning.”

Andrea Mitchell also received the lifetime achievement award.
