Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert, an HBO documentary about a certified nursing assistant (CNA) struggling to make ends meet, was nominated on July 10 for a Primetime Emmy in the category Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special.

The documentary follows Gilbert as she works long hours for low wages at a nursing home in her hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, while simultaneously juggling the responsibilities of being a single mother of three young children.

PHI spoke with Gilbert about her experiences in March.

The Primetime Emmy award ceremony will be held on August 25.
