A time of merry calls for a ridiculous number of baked goods.

A time of merry calls for a ridiculous number of baked goods.

You may have heard that fellow Berkeley grad students, Roberto Hernández and Layda Negrete, were nominated for several awards [1]for the 32nd News & Documentary Emmy ceremony [2]due to their documentary, “Presunto Culpable” [3] (“Presumed Guilty”). We at The Daily Clog are happy to announce that they were awarded the Emmy [4] for “Outstanding Investigative Journalism (long form)” on Sept. 26 in New York.

Hernández accepted the award on stage alongside Antonio “Toño” Zúñiga, whose court case was featured in the film.

On Sept. 27,  Hernández traveled to Washington D.C to show “Presunto Cupable” to staff members at the World Bank, showing that his film is continuing to gain momentum and spread its influence. Take out the cake and party hats, it’s time to celebrate!
