Whale Wars’ Emmy Nomination

Animal Planet’s popular show receives a nomination for the 2009 Emmy Awards.

Animal Planet’s hottest television show, Whale Wars, is garnering more than mass numbers of viewers—it’s garnering serious television industry attention.

Nominated for “Outstanding Cinematography For Nonfiction Programming,” the show that follows the ever-courageous Sea Shepherd is pitted against Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Deadliest Catch, Expedition Africa, and This American Life. The five cinematographers on-board have managed to capture hours of captivating footage from the Shepherd’s encounters with the Japanese whaling fleet. Tune into the Emmy’s on September 20 on CBS to see if they can also capture an award.
