HBO’s summer with the then-Oakland Raiders has been recognized by the Sports Emmy world.
The network received a Sports Emmy nomination for Hard Knocks season filmed at last summer’s 2019 Raiders training camp on Thursday. It nominated in the category of Outstanding Serialized Documentary, as the Raiders’ website mentioned today.
Here is Hard Knocks’ competition.

The 41st Annual Sports Emmy Awards has been postponed from April 28 due to the coronavirus crisis, with no new date set for the New York City-based ceremony.
As we wait for that and so many postponed events and leagues to return, let’s look back at last year’s gloriously sport-filled summer by asking: “was your favorite moment of the Raiders’ Hard Knocks?”
Jon Gruden being Gruden, Maxx Crosby on the mic? The Keelan Doss show?
Whatever it was, I bet it didn’t involve a hot air balloon or frostbite ...
