Chely Wright put a lot on the line when she let documentary filmmakers follow her around for her coming out process. The result was "Wish Me Away," a very personal look at Chely and how she struggled with being gay and coming out in the public eye.
The movie has won quite a few awards along the way since it was released in 2012. Now it's also been nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy Award, earning Showtime a nomination for Outstanding Informational Programming - Long Form award.
The awards will be presented on October 11 at a ceremony at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.
BTW, if you haven't had the chance to watch the film yet, you can still watch "Wish Me Away" on Netflix on their streaming service.
