It looks like Tom Brady may soon have some more hardware to add to his ever-growing collection. His Facebook series, “Tom vs. Time,” received an Emmy nomination Sunday for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary. The Patriots’ quarterback announced the news on Twitter.

Around these parts, much of our analysis about “Tom vs. Time” was built around the the Patriots’ palace intrigue it fueled, such as Brady’s rumination about losing his will to play football and Gisele Bundchen saying her husband just wants to be “appreciated” at work. But in addition to that, the series was well-executed, and provided a rare glimpse inside Brady’s personal life –– showing numerous scenes of him and his family. The episodes were shot prior to and immediately after the 2017 season. 

Five series in total were nominated for the award, including ESPN+’s “Quest for the Stanley Cup Final” and HBO’s “Being Serena.”
