The 2020 Los Angeles Area Emmy® Awards were presented over the weekend live on Emmys.com from the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center.

A complete list of this year’s Los Angeles Area Emmy Award winners, as compiled by the independent accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP, is attached.

Award-winning KCBS/KCAL journalist Pat Harvey hosted this year’s virtual awards ceremony for the Television Academy, which was produced by Bob Bain. The streaming ceremony honored locally produced programs in the categories of Crime and Social Issues, Culture and History, the Arts, Human Interest, Sports, the Environment, and Live and Breaking News Coverage.

Presenting the individual awards categories this year were a number of local-area personalities, reporters and newscasters including: Frank Buckley (KTLA5), Ana Patricia Candiani (Telemundo), Roy Choi (KCET and PBS SoCal), Fritz Coleman  (NBC4), Christine Devine (FOX11), Nomar Garciaparra (Spectrum Sports Net LA), Dave Lopez (CBS2 and KCAL9), Lisa McRee (Spectrum News 1), Kristina Pink (Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket), Dallas Raines (ABC7), Naibe Reynoso (LA County Channel), Gabriela Teissier (Univision) and Colleen Williams (NBC4).

 

Basketball legend and philanthropist Kobe Bryant was named the posthumous recipient of the 2020 Los Angeles Area Emmy Governors Award, recognizing his legacy of philanthropy, community building and inspiration that extended beyond the basketball court. Renowned composer John Williams, who composed the score for Bryant’s Oscar-winning film “Dear Basketball” and was a close friend of the beloved athlete, presented and accepted the award on behalf of the Bryant family.

The Los Angeles Area Emmys were made possible by Television Academy sponsors KIA, PEOPLE and United Airlines.

Mitch Waldow is vice chair, Los Angeles Area, serving on the Academy’s Executive Committee. Paul Button and Christie Lyn Lugo Leigh are the Los Angeles Area governors.
