The short-form documentary program “Climate Artists” received a total of four nominations for episodes featuring Enzo Barracco, Ludovico Einaudi, Kapu Collective and a group of New York City high school students who performed spoken word poetry at the Apollo Theater for “Climate Speaks.”
“Rufus Wainwright – Unfollow the Rules: The Paramour Session,” taped during the COVID-19 pandemic, and “Hip Hop Nutcracker,” filmed at New Jersey Performing Arts Center, were recognized in the long-form entertainment category.

The films “Under the Greenwood Tree” and “Transcending: The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Celebrates 50 Years” both received “Documentary Cultural” nominations.
This year’s New York Emmy announcement took place at the “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” studio in and was hosted by N. J. Burkett, president of the New York chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. This year’s eligibility period covered an expanded qualifying range, with programs required to have aired between Sept. 1, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2020. A record-number of entries were submitted for the award’s 189 categories.
An exact date for the ceremonies — and a decision about if the event will be held virtually or in-person — has yet to be determined, though organizers are eying the fall.
