Sam Dolnick, Nancy Donaldson Gauss and Jason Stallman of The New York Times sent out the following note:

We’re thrilled to announce that The Times won five Emmy Awards this week, a dazzling recognition that speaks to the power of the newsroom’s innovative and dynamic visual report.

Where Are All the Bob Ross Paintings? We Found Them” won an Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches: Arts, Lifestyle and Culture. A collaboration among Video, Graphics and Culture, the video employed a trove of archival footage, access to Ross’s original paintings and clever documentation of the online superfans. It’s one of the most charming and witty investigations we have ever published.

“The Weekly,” The Times’s biggest TV project to date in the streaming era, won four Emmys:

And it’s worth noting that Brian Rosenthal’s investigation into the taxi industry has now won a Polk Award, a Pulitzer Prize and an Emmy.

The evolution of “The Weekly” into a monthly cadence, now called “The New York Times Presents,” should keep The Times in millions of viewers’ watching queues. Catch up on the first few episodes on FX and Hulu.

The Times was nominated for 23 Emmys this year, a record for us: 11 from the Video department, three from Opinion and nine from “The Weekly,” more than many major TV and video outlets.

Congratulations to the nominees and the winners. Find the full nomination list here, the news winners here and the documentary winners here.
