The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences bestowed its 32nd annual Sports Emmy Awards on Monday night in New York, celebrating the best in broadcast sports for 2010. NBC’s Sunday Night Football was named Outstanding Live Series again and won one of the Peacock’s seven Emmys (the network’s Olympics coverage took five trophies), tying it with HBO for the most victories by a network. Among HBO’s kudos was a win for Outstanding Documentary (Lombardi) and three for its anthology series Hard Knocks. ESPN and ESPN2 combined for seven wins, CBS had six, and ABC and Fox had three apiece. Studio host Bob Costas (baseball) and play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick (hockey) won, as did analysts Kirk Herbstreit (college football) and Cris Collinsworth (pro football), and ABC’s coverage of the World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands was tapped as Outstanding Live Special. Play-by-play broadcaster Al Michaels received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
