UVa Center for Politics Wins Emmy Award for Documentary

June 17, 2013

The University of Virginia Center for Politics’ latest documentary, “Out of Order”, wins an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Best Topical Documentary.

“Out of Order: Civility in Politics” looks at partisanship and dysfunction in American government through interviews with academics, journalists, political observers and senior (current and former) elected officials.

The 30-minute documentary was one of 129 winners at the 55th Annual Emmy Awards, going up against 774 other entries in 104 award categories.

“We thank the Academy for recognizing the work of the Center for Politics and our great partners at the Community Ideas Stations,” said Professor Larry Sabato, the documentary's producer. “It will take a lot more than an award-winning film to change the behavior of Congress, but I hope we've helped citizens think about what they can do to improve the situation.”

To date, "Out of Order" has aired on more than 180 PBS stations across the country, including top markets such as Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.

An extended preview of Out of Order is available here.
