    What do you think about it? Do you like when happens such unexpected result? It’s fair or unfair for a particular category?

    And I wonder, this is could happen now? What rules says about it? And if ties allowed on the Emmy, in which category we can have a tie? For example, “Game of Thrones” & “Mad Men”? Or Jonathan Banks & Ben Mendelsohn? Or Lesli Linka Glatter & Timothy Van Patten?

    Thank you for clarifying, anyway.

    Wow, some of those shows bring back memories! Barbarians at the Gate is so good.

    As far as ties for winners, I don’t think anything in the rules precludes it from occurring. As the pool of voters – and nominees! – grows, it probably mathematically becomes less likely, though not impossible. Someone who is more adept at equations and statistics could probably give you a model scenario where the odds are the highest a tie will happen. As a non-math-minded person, my guess would be a category with the smallest number of nominees and a very limited pool of eligible voters.

    The Oscars have had six ties in history, and I believe it was just this year that there was a tie for the top award at the Daytime Emmys. With Primetime, a lot of people would probably be very happy if Banks & Mendelsohn could split the award. It certainly shouldn’t take away from the luster of either winner. It’s not like they have to put “50% Emmy winner” on their CV, get a sawed-in-half award at the podium Sealed

    Three television race ties at the 1988 Globes, one of them being a three-way tie, PLUS the three way tie for Best Actress Drama between Jody Foster, Shirley MacLaine, and Sigourney Weaver, what was in the water that year??

    If they are following the same way that they are voting all these recent years at Primetime Emmys, voters are ranking the nominees from 1 to 6. those who have the lowest totals win and i think a tie is broken by how many #1s the nominee got. If still tied, then they go to #2 and so on. That’s why there are no ties even with a small pool. I think juried awards are the only awards that can result in ties
