Los Angeles Area Emmy Nominations: KMEX Leads Field Over KCET

Television Academy

Spanish-language outlet KMEX leads with the field with 22 nominations for the 71st annual Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards, topping KCET’s 19. Read the full list below, and check out the nominations by network here.

It’s the first time since 2015 that KMEX has led the noms list outright. Last year it tied with KCET for the most noms from the Television Academy, with the former PBS outlet, ultimately scoring the most trophies six months later.

KVEA is running third with 12 nominations, with NBC4 next with nine.

The hardware will be handed out during a July 27 ceremony at the Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood.

Here is the full list of nominees:
