The 32nd Annual Emmy Award nominations for news and documentary were announced this morning, with numerous docs that were favorites on the festival circuit over the last year or two making appearances throughout the nominations.

While CBS led the overall nominations with 34 (mostly for its news programs), it was closely followed by PBS with 32. Of those, 12 came from PBS's doc series POV, which saw the likes of "Food, Inc.," "The Oath" and "Presumed Guilty" receive multiple nominations. HBO Documentary Films also received 12 nominations, including nods for "A Small Act," "War Don Don" and "Monica & David."

Alexandra Codina's noted "Monica," Robert Kenner's "Food, Inc." (PBS's POV), Nicole Opper's "Off and Running" (POV), Stephanie Wang‑Breal's "Wo Ai Ni (I Love You) Mommy" (POV), Eric D. Metzgar's "Reporter" (HBO) and Ofra Bikel's "The Confessions" (PBS's Frontline) were nominated in the Outstanding Informational Programming (Long Form) category.

Alex Gibney's "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer" (which aired on A&E) and Laura Poitra's "The Oath" and Roberto Hernandez and Geoffrey Smith's "Presumed Guilty" (both of which aired on PBS's POV) were both nominated for Outstanding Investigative Journalism (Long Form) alongside Thomas Jennings's "Law & Disorder," which aired on PBS's Frontline.

In the Outstanding Arts & Culture Programming category, Sundance 2010 alums Leon Gast's "Smash His Camera" (HBO), Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" (Showtime), and Doug Pray's "Art & Copy" (PBS) were nominated alongside "POV/Storycorps Animated Series" on PBS and "Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America," which aired as part of VH1's Rock Docs.

There was also the straightforward Best Documentary category, which saw the aforementioned likes of "Client 9," "Food, Inc.," "Presumed Guilty" and "The Oath" nominated with Jennifer Arnold's "A Small Act," which aired on HBO, and Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger's "Restrepo," which aired on the National Geographic Channel.

"Restrepo" and "Client 9" also received nominations for Outstanding Editing, as did "A Promise To The Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman" (National Geographic Channel), "War Don Don" (HBO), and an episode of ABC's "Boston Med."

A complete list of nominations can be found here. Winners will be presented on Monday, September 26 at a ceremony at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located in the Time Warner Center in New York City.
