The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has honored Jeopardy! with 34 Emmy Awards plus two Lifetime Achievement honors (for host Alex Trebek and executive producer Harry Friedman). Jeopardy! holds the Guinness World Records™ title for Most Emmys won by a TV Game Show.

Additionally, Executive Producer Harry Friedman has a total of 14 Emmy® Awards – the most ever by any game show producer. He has been nominated a staggering 42 times, which is also a Guinness World Record. In fact, he’s such a fixture on the Emmys stage that, in 2011, Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune – for which Harry also serves as executive producer – tied for the Outstanding Game Show award. This led to a bizarre moment when, upon accepting the awards, he had to shake his own hand.

We’d like to thank NATAS for their support. We look forward to creating more Emmy-worthy programming in the years to come.
