David has four nominations

Fans were lost for words when they saw Jenna leap from a plane live on-air in June 2021.

The Today with Hoda & Jenna show host took the brave step to skydive in honor of her late grandfather, George H. W. Bush, and she did so in spectacular fashion.

Jenna was filmed gingerly preparing to take the tandem jump with Sgt. 1st class Joseph Abe-Lynn strapped to her back before taking the 10,000 feet plunge. She was determined to pay tribute to the former President of the United States, who had skydived on his 90th birthday, seven years prior.

Jenna's segment was also nominated

Jenna kept in contact with the studio the entire time and said as she drifted down to earth: "It feels like floating, but it's one of the most exhilarating, terrifying moments of your life. I feel close to all the people I've been missing. It's beautiful up there! The view from up here is spectacular."

ABC scored the most nominations with 39, followed by CNN with 37.

The News And Documentary Emmys will be.presented in two different categories: news on 28 September and documentary on 29 September.
