Theatrical feature Only The Dead has been nominated for Outstanding Current Affairs Documentary Emmy® Award at the 38th annual National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awards.
Only The Dead is the story of what happens when an ordinary journalist transplanted into the Middle East by the reverberations of 9/11, butts into history. Following the Iraq war Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the most vicious al Qaeda leader the world has ever seen brings the country to its knees orchestrating suicide truck bombings; the bloody horrors of the civil war; the televised beheadings. He captures it all on camera and shares it with the hard-drinking, hard‐running, maverick Michael Ware, an Australian reporting for American news outlets.
The prestigious prize is presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in recognition of excellence in American news and documentary. Find out more about the awards here.
