Posted by PBS Publicity on

On July 18, 2013 the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy® Awards. PBS programs received 25 nominations for their work over the past year.

PBS programs receiving multiple nominations include MASTERPIECE CLASSIC “Downton Abbey” (12 nominations), LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER (3), AMERICAN MASTERS (3) and THE DUST BOWL (2).

“I’m very proud of all of the PBS programs nominated for Emmys this year,” said PBS President & CEO Paula Kerger. “It’s very rewarding to see 'Downton Abbey' on MASTERPIECE receive such critical acclaim to go along with its immense popularity. I’m also very honored to see some of our most iconic programming recognized, from Ken Burns’s THE DUST BOWL to AMERICAN EXPERIENCE and ANTIQUES ROADSHOW. It’s fantastic to see these programs recognized for bringing stories to our audiences that might otherwise go untold. And, of course, as America’s largest stage for the arts, we’re very pleased to see AMERICAN MASTERS and LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER recognized for their quality programming, which reflects PBS’ commitment to share exceptional programming across many genres.”

The Primetime Emmy Awards will be telecast September 22, 2013, on ABC from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
