Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy And Mohammed Ali Naqvi must be feeling on top of the world right now! Why you ask? Because their documentaries – A Girl In The River and Among The Believers – have been nominated for the 38th annual news and documentary Emmy Awards. Out of the 40 categories, Sharmeen’s A Girl In The River is nominated in three categories – Best Documentary, Outstanding Short Documentary and Outstanding Music and Sound – while Ali Naqvi’s Among The Believers is nominated in Outstanding Politics and Government Documentary.
