Anthony Cortese Up For Both Long And Short Feature Categories

Anthony Cortese, a film & TV staff editor with leading post-production services company Sixteen19, has accrued a total of seven Emmy nominations with an emphasis in sports-related projects. His scorecard for 2011 includes: 

Outstanding Sports Documentary- A Game of Honor- Showtime / CBS Sports.  A riveting perspective on team preparations for the Army-Navy Game, this program is also up for: Outstanding New Approaches - Sports Programming;  Outstanding Camera Work; Outstanding Sports Promotional Announcement (Episodic/trailer) and, Outstanding Editing.

Cortese is also represented by nominees in both the long and short form Emmy categories.  He edited the Human Highlight Reel: Manny Ohonme: The Great Samaritan - CBS / Turner Sports, focused on a college basketball star who founded a non-profit that provides shoes for millions of kids in 40 countries, this production is up for the Outstanding Short Feature Emmy. In the Outstanding Long Feature category, Cortese cut the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament: Amongst Friends: A Story of Loss and Healing, CBS, a compelling look into the ongoing battle against autism. 

A two-time, Emmy winner in the Associate Producer Category, Cortese is delighted to have been nominated in multiple editorial categories this year. "I'm particularly proud of A Game Of Honor," he says. "Not only because of the number of nominations it drew, but because it was one of the most challenging projects I've ever fielded. We amassed over 500 hours of digital footage, generated over a period of six months, at one point by as many as eight individual cameras.  It arrived on a daily basis and didn't stop until just 11 days before the 2011 Army Navy Game."

In addition to editing versions of the documentary for both CBS Sports and Showtime, Cortese cut seven of the ten 'webisodes' created to promote the documentary online.  Five of his cuts, ranging in length from three to eight minutes, are Emmy nominees. Categories covered above.

 Over 170 Emmy nominees are competing in 33 categories including: Outstanding Live Sports Special, Live Series, Sports Documentary, Studio Show and Promotional Announcement.  The Awards will be presented on April 30th in New York City.
