We are extremely pleased to see that Todd Miller's Dinosaur 13 has won the Outstanding Science and Technology Programming award at the 36th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards.
Dinosaur 13 is a documentary that follows the odyssey of paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from South Dakota’s Black Hills Institute of Geological Research after their history-making find: the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. The dinosaur skeleton quickly became known to the world as ‘Sue,’ named after amateur paleontologist, Susan Hendrickson, who located the first fossil fragments late in the summer of 1990.
The film, which premiered on December 11, 2014, on CNN, tells the tale of this truly amazing scientific discovery and the strange and twisted aftermath concerning the legal custody of Sue and the fate of the team that unearthed her.
The team at Dogwoof Global are so happy to see the film receiving the accolades it deserves. Take a look at the win and speeches below.
