Hulu officially entered the awards arena today as its 10-episode docuseries "Behind the Mask" received a Sports Emmy nomination in the category of "Outstanding New Approaches ­Sports Programming."

Created by Josh Greenbaum, whose film "The Short Game," won the audience awards at last year's SXSW, "Behind the Mask," explores what it is like to be a mascot for a sports team at both the amateur and professional levels.

Season 2 is currently in pre-production. The winners of the Sports Emmy Awards will be announced May 6.
