Sports Emmys: An Inside Look at the Productions That Won Big This Year

The Sports Emmys may be history, but SVG has spent the past week combing through our archives — as well as YouTube and Vimeo — to let you get a sense of what it takes to put together an Emmy Award-winning effort. These features from the SVG archives detail some of the production plans, while the videos give you a chance to relive the moments, the stories, and the emotions that made 2016 — and the early part of 2017 — so memorable.
