‘Oprah’s Master Class’ Becomes OWN’s First Primetime Emmy Nomination
News that Oprah‘s OWN network has received its first Primetime Emmy nod for Master Class is exciting for two reasons: 1) OWN has been working especially hard to save itself this year and 2) I’ve personally learned so much from the inspirational series.
Now in its third season, Oprah’s Master Class has been nominated in the Outstanding Informational Series or Special category, competing with Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Brain Games, Inside The Actors Studio, and Stand Up To Cancer.
See the statement released by OWN:
“Oprah’s Master Class” tells the stories you’ve never heard from the people you thought you knew best. Hand-picked by Oprah Winfrey for their unique impact on the world, true modern masters step forward to share the greatest lessons they’ve learned along the way. In an intimate setting, they share their successes, their failures, their triumphs, disappointments and heartbreaks. “Oprah’s Master Class” offers an unprecedented first-person insight into the brilliant minds of the famous people we love, respect, and admire. The nominated season features masters such as Tom Brokaw, Cindy Crawford, Alicia Keys and Stevie Nicks.
We couldn’t be more proud of this nomination that recognizes Oprah’s creative vision for our network, the dedication of everyone at OWN, Harpo Studios and our wonderful partners at Radical Media,” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. “We are thrilled to receive such an honor.”
The Emmy Awards will air live on CBS on Sunday, September 22 at 5pm PT at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
