Ava DuVernay's 'When They See Us' Scores The Most 2019 Emmy Nominations For Netflix

"Thank you @Netflix for believing in this story and letting me tell it the exact way I wanted,” the director wrote on Twitter.

Ava DuVernay’s series “When They See Us,” which told the stories of five black and Latino men who were wrongly convicted of a brutal crime as teenagers, earned the most Emmy nominations for Netflix this year, The Hollywood Reporter reported

The limited series scored 16 noms on Tuesday, which topped the list for the streaming service platform, which saw a total of 117 nominations across its series. Netflix came second to HBO, which had the highest number of nominations with 137.

“When They See Us” was met with critical acclaim after it debuted on the streaming platform on May 31.

“When They See Us” gave a voice to the five men, who for decades were widely referred to as the so-called Central Park Five. It also reignited widespread backlash against the media’s and the prosecution’s handling of the case. They each served time behind bars until their convictions were vacated in 2002.
