Veteran broadcaster and satirist Bill Maher is no longer Emmy's biggest loser, as this past Saturday he finally took home his overdue Emmy.
Maher has been nominated a record 33 times for a variety of shows, including his shows Real Time
and Politically Incorrect
, his stand-up specials and individual performance and writing nominations for these shows. His first nomination was in 1995, and all this time he has gone unrewarded, setting the record for most nominations without a win.
He won the Emmy for producing Vice
, the hard-hitting documentary series which won Outstanding Informational Series or Special on Saturday. Maher helped bring the ambitious Vice
magazine to HBO, where it now sheds an unadulterated light on the world and society.
Maher is also in contention for the primetime Emmys, which air next Monday. He is nominated once again for Outstanding Variety Series for his satirical talk show Real Time with Bill Maher.
