M-Net Channels’ Shows Shine At Emmy Awards Nominations

For the past 30 years (and counting) M-Net has been bringing only the best television entertainment to viewers in Africa and beyond. With the 68th Emmy® Awards Nomination announcement, there can be no doubt that there’s a touch of magic when it comes to the pristine selection of series across the M-Net Channels.

The 68th Emmy® Awards ceremony will be televised live on the morning of Monday 19 September, on M-Net channel 101 at 02:00 CAT, and during prime time, the awards show will be broadcast at 19:30 CAT.

 

Nominations for the awards were announced last night and, as expected, most of the acclaimed mentions were shows straight off the M-Net Channels’ catalogue, meaning that these shows are leaders of the pack yet again this year.

 

The nomination ceremony was hosted by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum, with Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson from the hit comedy Black-Ish and Golden Globe nominee Lauren Graham of Gilmore Girls.

 

And the nominees are:
