The film, “Monica & David,” premiered last fall on HBO. It followed Monica and David Martinez as they prepared for their wedding and subsequently learned to establish an independent life for themselves as newlyweds.



Now the documentary has been nominated in the outstanding informational programming category of the News & Documentary Emmy Awards.



Winners will be announced Sept. 26 at a ceremony in New York City.



This is not the first honor for “Monica & David.” The film was named best documentary feature at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival last year.
