Foxborough, MA– In Tom Brady’s illustrious NFL career, there are few things he has not accomplished. He has been a league MVP and Super Bowl MVP multiple times. He’s been an All-Pro, a Sportsman of the Year, a Pro Bowler. He has won six Super Bowl championships and is widely considered the greatest champion in all of sports. And yet, even as he gets older, Brady still just keeps winning, as evidenced by the recent Sports Emmy Awards ceremony that saw Brady take home even more hardware. As if there is any place left in his house he can actually store it.
At the Sports Emmys, a documentary on Brady won the award for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary. The series, Tom vs. Time, was a Facebook video documentary featuring six episodes in 2018, and it was the talk of the town after Brady continued to defy odds. The GOAT himself even weighed in on Twitter about the honor.
The other nominees in Brady’s category were the Serena Williams documentary, Being Serena, from HBO, Quest for the Stanley Cup, from ESPN+, and All or Nothing, a series about Manchester City and the Dallas Cowboys, from Amazon.
With an Emmy under his belt, Brady needs just an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Tony if he wants to add the EGOT to his resume. If anyone from sports can do it, it’s Brady. Tell Brady he cannot win something and his whole life revolves around winning that thing.
Another Boston sports favorite took home some hardware as well that evening, even if it was in more of an indirect manner than the trophy handed over to Brady. “NBA Desktop,” a web series about basketball, which is hosted by Jason Concepcion and Jason Gallagher of The Ringer, won the Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Digital Innovation. The Ringer is, of course, the website of major Boston sports fan Bill Simmons, so it only makes sense that Bostonians would feel some pride for all the things Simmons has accomplished on his own. But obviously, congratulations are also due to Concepcion and Gallagher.
