The Last Dance Wins Emmy Award

The Emmy-award winning docuseries focused on Michael Jordan’s career and the 1997-98 Bulls.

The Last Dance, which featured the story of the Bulls’ final championship run in the ’90s, won an Emmy for “Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series” last night.

The docuseries, which also touched upon Michael Jordan’s career and the rest of the Bulls championship teams, beat out Netflix’s Tiger King, HBO’s McMillion$, Hulu’s Hillary, and PBS’s American Masters for the award.

It was the first win in the docuseries category for ESPN and the network’s sixth Primetime Emmy win overall.

Director Jason Hehir thanked many people, including the NBA, ESPN, and even Michael Jordan himself. “Thank you to Michael Jordan himself for giving us his time, his honesty, and his candor…I hope we brought a little bit of brightness to a dark and difficult year.”

Hehir and his crew interviewed 105 people for the docuseries, which featured stories from the likes of Scottie Pippen, Phil Jackson, and Dennis Rodman. The news comes on the eve of some of the Bulls returning to the Advocate Center for voluntary workouts.

Chicago born and raised. Cubs and Bulls die hard. Love the Hawks and Bears too. You can usually find me drinking beers at AJ Hudson's watching West Ham soccer in the Premier League or hiking on a mountain somewhere.
