ESPN led the field with 36 nominations — including 10 for its coverage of the FIFA World Cup during the summer — as the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences unveiled nominees for the 32nd annual Sports Emmy Awards, which will be presented May 2 in New York. NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver last year had the most individual nominations with 11. During the ceremony, Michaels, the longtime sportscaster currently the voice of NBC’s Sunday Night Football franchise, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. He has called every sport in the book but certainly is best remembered for the “Do you believe in miracles?” call as the U.S. hockey team upset the favored Soviet Union during the Cold War-tinged 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.
