The nominations for the 2022 Emmy Awards were announced today, and two Beatles-related documentary series came away with multiple nods.
The Beatles: Get Back, the three-part Disney+ docuseries about the January 1969 recording sessions that yielded the band’s Let It Be album, scored five nominations. The program will vie for the Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series award, as well as for trophies honoring outstanding directing, picture editing, sound editing and sound mixing.
In addition, the Hulu documentary series McCartney 3,2,1 received three nominations, for outstanding cinematography, sound editing and sound mixing. The six-part program featured Paul McCartney talking with producer Rick Rubin about the music that he created with The Beatles and as a solo artist.
Meanwhile, Hulu’s Pam & Tommy miniseries, which tells the story of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and Baywatch star Pamela Anderson‘s infamous sex tape, received 10 nominations.
Both Sebastian Stan and Lily James, who played Lee and Anderson, respectively, earned nominations and will be competing in the categories of Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. Seth Rogen, who played the role of the person who stole the tape, is up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.
Pam & Tommy, itself, is nominated for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series and is up for several awards in sound, costuming and casting categories.
