Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno have a lot in common. Not the least of which being the fact that both men are now spending their retirements making highly entertaining web series about some of the coolest cars ever produced. Another claim both men now share is that their respective car series have been nominated for Emmy Awards.
This year’s Emmys take place on August 25 with Jay Leno’s Garage and Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee both competing for the Emmy in the Special Class for Outstanding Short-Format Nonfiction Program. Leno’s show has already received five previous nominations including one Emmy, while this will mark Seinfeld’s second nomination.

Since retiring, Leno has been able to focus more on Jay Leno’s Garage, which has become a must-see series. Not only does Leno get an up-close look at iconic cars (past, present or future), he also gets to talk to some of the key people behind the cars. Some memorable recent episodes include Leno checking out the Toyota FT-1 Concept, driving Steve McQueen’s 1956 Jaguar XKSS and even taking his McLaren P1 to Chik-Fil-A.

Now in its fourth season, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee continues to get better with funnier actors and a steady stream of awesome cars. This year, Seinfeld has driven a 1965 Buick Riviera with George Wallace, a 1976 Ford Country Squire with Sarah Jessica Parker and a 45-foot luxury motorhome with Aziz Ansari

In addition to Jay Leno’s Garage and Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, other shows hoping to win the Emmy for Outstanding Short-Format Nonfiction Program include ESPN's 30 For 30, Cosmos: A National Geographic Deeper Dive, I Was There: Boston Marathon Bombings and Park Bench with Steve Buscemi.
