Last night saw Ken Burns being presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 29th News & Documentary Emmy Awards. Before an illustrious audience filling the Rose Theater at the Jazz at Lincoln Center, Ken accepted the award not for himself, but for the friends and mentors who have helped guide his career, and for the dedicated and gifted team who have supported his film making for over 25 years. I was very fortunate to be able to attend and count myself as part of that team.
Congratulations to everyone honored last night.
