In addition, CNN founder Ted Turner was honored with the News and Documentary Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement at this evening’s ceremonies.

Dinosaur 13 is a documentary that follows the odyssey of paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from South Dakota’s Black Hills Institute of Geological Research after their history-making find: the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. The dinosaur skeleton quickly became known to the world as ‘Sue,’ named after amateur paleontologist, Susan Hendrickson, who located the first fossil fragments late in the summer of 1990.

The film, which premiered on December 11, 2014, on CNN, tells the tale of this truly amazing scientific discovery and the strange and twisted aftermath concerning the legal custody of Sue and the fate of the team that unearthed her.
