Two TV productions from Brazil are among the eight nominees for this year’s International Emmy Awards for current affairs and news. They are Discovery Networks Latin America’s The Assassination of Jean Charles Meneses, about the fatal shooting of a Brazilian immigrant mistaken for a suicide bomber in London, and TV Globo’s Jornal Nactional: War on Drugs, which detailed a raid on a drug dealer’s stronghold. Also on the list, Britain’s Sky News Live at Five: Inside the Taliban earned a nom, as did Back from the Brink: Inside the Chilean Mine Disaster, from Japan Broadcasting Corp’s NHK. The winners will be announced Sept. 28 in New York.
