“L.A. talent drives the creative excellence recognized at the Emmys,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Our city’s impact is felt in the more than 200 nominations earned by productions based here, along with two winners that received the film and television tax credit we fought so hard to secure. The people and jobs behind those accolades are essential to a thriving middle class — and I’ll keep working to make sure they always have a home in Los Angeles.” –Mayor Eric Garcetti
