GGTV3 has received five Emmy nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Pacific Southwest Chapter over the past four years.

Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards recognize excellence in the television industry in the San Diego, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and Bakersfield television markets, including Orange County.
