According to a report by F4WOnline, WWE and AEW have both been nominated for Emmy Awards.
The report is based on the statement from an Emmy Awards voter, who said that WWE and AEW were all up for nomination in this year’s “Outstanding Structured Reality Program” category. WWE Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, and AEW Dynamite were the three nominees.
Raw’s listing for voters states, “Raw delivers live, edge-of-your-seat action, larger-than-life characters and unpredictable drama for three hours every Monday night.”
The listing for SmackDown states, “For more than 20 years and with more than 1,000 episodes, Smackdown has showcased WWE’s top Superstars and created countless memorable moments.”
Finally, the listing for AEW states, “AEW is a global wrestling league featuring a world class roster of diverse male and female wrestlers, giving fans the first new wrestling experience in 20 years. AEW is headlined by Cody & Brandi Rhodes, Chris Jericho, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Hangman Page and Jon Moxley.”
WWE has long been trying to be nominated for an Emmy Award for their television shows. In 2018, they presented a “For Your Consideration” presentation for why they should be considered for an Emmy Award.
