ESPN and Netflix's Michael Jordan docuseries The Last Dance won for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmys, beating Netflix’s Tiger King, Hulu’s Hillary, PBS’ American Masters and HBO’s McMillions. In fact, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness was shut out in all six categories it was nominated in. The Last Dance marked ESPN's first win in the documentary category after three previous nominations for 30 for 30. The Last Dance director Jason Hehir said of the Emmy victory: “Thank you to Michael Jordan himself for giving us his time, his honesty and his candor and the other 105 people who sat down and gave their time and their honesty to make the story what it was. I hope we brought a little bit of brightness to a dark and difficult year and I hope you all stay safe and be well."
