Today the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the 2015 Emmy nominees for Outstanding Commercial. TBWA/Chiat/Day L.A. led with two spots in the running: Gatorade's Derek Jeter tribute "Made in New York," directed by Smuggler's Henry-Alex Rubin and Nissan's touching "With Dad" Super Bowl ad, about a racecar driver/father, directed by Park Pictures's Lance Acord.
Other nominees from this year's crop of Super Bowl ads include Budweiser's latest puppy and horse tearjerker, "Lost Dog," from Anomaly and directed by RSA's Jake Scott, as well as BBDO's Snickers "You're Not You" laugher "Brady Bunch," directed by O Positive's Jim Jenkins.
Leo Burnett's celebrated film Always "Like a Girl," directed by Chelsea Pictures' Lauren Greenfield, also made the list, as did Goodby Silverstein & Partners' stunning Oscars ad celebrating Photoshop's 25th Anniversary, "Dream On," directed by agency Creative Directors Brady Baltezore and Mike Landry.
