The Cleveland Browns time on Hard Knocks was memorable for a lot of negative things. Such is the general goal of the HBO special featuring one NFL team every training camp. Cute stories and drama sell in most mediums of media but especially in video form.
On the other end of the spectrum is the team-run show Building the Browns. While the show will sometimes hit on difficult situations, it is mostly intended to let fans in on what is going on around the team, highlight front office staff, coaches and players and generally focus on the positives around the team.
Building the Browns has won four Emmy awards since it began in 2014. The 2021 series is up for five Emmy’s this year:
- Best Sports Story: Content
- Best Sports Program
- Best Sports One-Time Special
- Best Sports Documentary
- Societal Concerns
The 43rd Sports Emmy Awards will be announced at their event on May 24, 2022, live from Lincoln Center. The last three years, the event was not held in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
