Nominations for the 31st Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards were announced Thursday in New York, and for only the second time, the Los Angeles Times was nominated.

The online documentary ‘Alabama’s Homeboys,’ produced by Katy Newton, Sean Connelly, Liz O. Baylen and Mary Cooney, follows members of L.A.’s Homeboy Industries, a nationally recognized gang-intervention organization, and their work with impoverished youths in Prichard, Ala.

The winners will be announced this fall.
