STATEMENTS OF MAYOR BLOOMBERG AND MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT COMMISSIONER OLIVER ON "MADE IN NY" TV SHOWS EARNING 106 PRIMETIME EMMY NOMINATIONS

Statement of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

“Today’s Emmy nominations cap off a momentous year for our ‘Made in NY’ television shows. The shows that call New York City home and generate quality jobs for some of the 130,000 New Yorkers who work in the local entertainment industry have earned 106 nominations. The City is so proud to host these productions and I congratulate them on behalf of all New Yorkers. We’re especially proud of one of New York City’s funniest shows: ‘Saturday Night Live’ received 14 nominations this year and now holds the record for most nominations for a single program with 156 in total.”

Statement of Media & Entertainment Commissioner Katherine Oliver

“We’ve watched their shows all year long on our TVs, computers and tablets, and now we’re thrilled to congratulate all of the ‘Made in NY’ Emmy nominees. New York City is home to some of the most creative and talented people in the world; we really are a TV town. We’ll be rooting for you when the winners are announced in September.”
