Variety; September 15, 2012
HBO scored Emmys from a number of sources, including three for "Broadwalk,"
two apiece for movie "Hemingway & Gallhorn" and "George Harrison: Living in the Material World," and single wins for "Curb
Your Enthusiasm," "Game Change" and "Girls"
"George wanted to make his own documentary," said Harrison's widow Olivia,
a producer on the project, whose Emmy wins included nonfiction special and nonfiction directing for Martin Scorsese. "I don't
know what that would have been like. He was collecting film, he was filming for years...We tried to do it with respect."

Director Martin Scorsese also received one of the coveted statuettes,
which depict a winged woman holding an atom, for his documentary on former Beatle, George Harrison.
Harrison's widow, Olivia, told reporters the guitarist had been planning
his own documentary before his death in 2001.
"After the Beatles Anthology came out, he started filming and was filming
for several years to do his own story," she said. "I think he would be very happy with the award and the reception."
