While the city's television producers gleefully tally up the Emmy nominations earned for flagship shows such as "Breaking Bad"  and "Game of Thrones,"  the Los Angeles Philharmonic also has something to crow about. An L.A. Phil program was nominated Thursday in the outstanding special class category, for the PBS broadcast of Herbie Hancock and Gustavo Dudamel joining in a concert to celebrate George Gershwin, which opened the 2011 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Airing under the banner of PBS' "Great Performances" series, the show was co-produced for broadcast by New York City's WNET and is going up against some stiff competition.

Last year, the venerated jazz pianist Herbie Hancock released "Possibilities," an album of eclectic, headline-grabbing collaborations with artists like Christina Aguilera and John Mayer that was quickly forgotten by anyone who doesn't buy their music at Starbucks. To help us remember, directors Doug Biro and Jon Fine have cut together "Herbie Hancock: Possibilities," a documentary about the studio sessions that feels more like a behind-the-scenes CD promo than a fully realized film.
