Michael Jordan proved his competitive pull once more as the ESPN documentary “The Last Dance” earned three Emmy nominations.
The documentary won nominations for outstanding documentary, documentary directing and editing.
The 10-part docuseries, airing on ESPN in the United States and on Netflix elsewhere, details the 1998 Bulls’ season, Jordan’s final year with the team and the organization’s last championship.
It was ESPN’s most watched documentary ever. The series was also a hit on social media. It was the trending topic on Twitter for five straight Sundays. The network moved up the docuseries to April from June in order to fill the void left after most sports were shut down in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
