    The 2012 Emmy Rules and Procedures are available, and while I noticed a few minor changes, nothing really big stood out. 

    Probably the biggest change was the removal of the words “Music” and “Comedy” from the Variety/Music/Comedy categories, which now refer to “Variety” programs.  There was also a change in the two Special Visual Effects categories; instead of one for series and one for miniseries/specials, it is now one where visual effects are “essential” and one where they “have a supporting role”.
    Also, there will be “not just absolutely, not just positively, but absolutely, positively, no exceptions to the ‘no more than 16 producers per entry for a reality-competition series, and no more than 10 for a reality-noncompetition series’ rule”.

    The five percent screentime of miniseries supporting is still wrong. Even for movie it is wrong. No one from Roots The Next Generation would’ve been nominated under that rule! Swoozie  Kurts couldn’t have been nominated for And The Band Played on. It’s a bad rule. They should just accept the Burstyn nomination as a mistake and throw that rule out.

    Found another one:
    Made-for-TV “honors” shows, as opposed to awards shows, are now considered Variety shows rather than Special Class shows.
    However, an “honors” event that was not specifically made for TV is still considered Special Class.
    (At least, that’s the way I read it – the definition of “Special Class” does specifically say “not honors”, but it also says “not-exclusively-made-for-television variety event program”, and the definition of “variety event program” says that it can include “honors”.)

    Question: which “honors” are made-for-TV events?  For example, is something like the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award show “made for TV”?  What about the Kennedy Center Honors?

    The obvious, didn;t read the book yet but based on observations, is that the miniseries/movie category is being as loose as a $2 whore when it comes to who can qualify for that category.

    But they didn’t allow Luck to compete. I guess they had to draw the line somewhere.

    Some suggestions to the Academy: Bring back the Variety Performance category and abolish the multi-camera technical categories (if a multi-camera show boasts such great art direction/cinematography/costumes, it can be nominated alongside single-camera series; otherwise, please don’t embarrass yourselves further with categories in which shows like Whitney and Work It! have a shot at a nomination).
