American Ninja Warrior Junior has been nominated for three 2019 Daytime Emmy awards!

The show is still currently airing its first season and it’s already a hit among both Ninja Warrior fans and new fans. The format has incredibly talented young Ninjas race side by side on real obstacles that were built to accommodate their smaller statures. All the while, the competitors never lose their sense of pride to take part as well as their camaraderie with their opponents.

American Ninja Warrior Junior is hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila, with Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez as the sideline reporter.

The show has been nominated in the categories of: Outstanding Children or Family Viewing Series, Outstanding Daytime Promotional Announcement – Topical, and Outstanding Technical Team.
