Facebook Live gets its first Emmy nod for an ACLU telethon

Latest news

    The event featured appearances by Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Tracy Morgan, Tina Fey, Steve Buscemi, Tituss Burgess, Sterling K. Brown and a number of musical performers. It raised over $500,000 for the American Civil Liberties Union, a non-profit that vows to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person” in the US. The group recently backed the net neutrality day of action and challenged President Trump’s immigration ban.

    The Oscars: All Access show that aired on the platform also earned a nomination for the same category. It showed clips from the event, pre-show interviews, as well as backstage and behind-the-scenes moments to complement the awards night’s TV broadcast. Finally NBC’s Hairspray Live!, which served as a companion to the musical that aired on the channel, was nomination for Production Design for a Variety Nonfiction, Event or Award Special.
