If you have gone to abc.go.com to download and print your 2012 Primetime Emmy Ballot, you might have noticed a mistake like I did.
Under the variety section on their ballot, they have listed the nominees for the Writing and Directing in a Variety Series instead of the nominees for the Writing and Directing in a Variety Special. If you want to stick with the ballot they have provided, congratulations you already have two correct.
I know it’s not that big of a deal, but I was wondering if anyone at Gold Derby could contact ABC and inform them of the mix-up, that way Emmy nerds like us can be a happy as possible come Emmy night.
Check for yourself. Here’s a link:

It’s not just ABC. The Emmys website has made the same mistake. They have a printable Emmy ballot and they invite you to play along, but instead of writing and directing for a Variety Special, they have included writing and directing for a Variety Series. It’s been that way for a week.
Anyone else slightly perturbed by how many pages these things take to print? Really makes me yearn for the Oscar ballots.
