I would just like to know if the comedies:
Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous
The Goodwin Games
are eligible at this year’s Emmy awards. I would like answers for all please.May 29, 2013 at 6:57 am #277520
I think Family Tools aired all of its episodes before the end of May so they’re elegible.
The Goodwin Games and Save Me must be burning off episode two or three this week, out of a possible 6 episode order, so they’re not elegible.
I don’t know what the other two shows are.May 29, 2013 at 7:19 am #277521
I think The Goodwin Games has seven episodes already made. If this is true, then, under a strict reading of the Emmy eligibility rules, it would not be eligible as it did not air at least six episodes in either the 2012-13 or 2013-14 eligibility periods. The “hanging episodes” rule does not seem to apply in a case where a show did not air at least six episodes in an eligibility period (June 1 – May 31).
If it has eight episodes, and all of them air, then it would be eligible for 2014 as six of them will have aired on or after June 1.
Zach Stone is Gonna Get Famous is in the same situation; only four episodes have aired so far. If MTV can air two more episodes before June 1, then it will be eligible for 2013. On the other hand, reportedly there are 12 episodes; if this is true, and at least six air after May 31, then it will be eligible for 2014.May 29, 2013 at 7:39 am #277522
Of its 7-episode order, I know The Goodwin Games will air 2 before the eligibility period ends.
Of 13 episodes, Save Me will air 4.
Of 12 episodes, Zach Stone will air 5.
Of 10 episodes, Maron will air 5.
Of 10 episodes, Family Tools will air 4.
However, it looks like Family Tools will be eligible as it is on the shortlist here on GoldDerby so I am confusedMay 29, 2013 at 12:30 pm #277523
The way that it works is that a series has to air six episodes to be eligible for series; otherwise, it is a miniseries. Whatever the majority of the season is on, up to five “hanging” episodes may be attached. All of the titles that you listed are airing the majority of their episodes in the 2014 eligibility period and have fewer than six episodes airing in the 2013 eligibility, with the exception of Maron. As such, The Goodwin Games, Save Me, Zach Stone and Family Tools will be eligible only for the 2014 Emmys. Maron will be entered for either the 2013 or 2014 at the discretion of its producers and studio. Gold Derby will update its list soon to remove Family Tools. A recent example of what I am describing in action is the second season of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, which aired three episodes on both sides of the eligibility line and opted to submit in the later year.May 29, 2013 at 5:12 pm #277524
How about the BBC2 show The Fall starring Gillian Anderson ?May 29, 2013 at 5:44 pm #277525
Hard to tell: normally, I think that it would be ineligible because it has not aired in he United States, but I think that you actually can stream it on Netflix, so maybe that makes it eligible.May 31, 2013 at 9:40 pm #277526
How about the HBO special episode of Life’s Too Short? It’s only about an hour long and will air on HBO in August. The first season was eligible last year, and now I wonder how they’ll treat the last (double-length) episode of the series. Will it be eligible as a TV movie?May 31, 2013 at 11:33 pm #277527
Yep, like the Extras Christmas special.June 1, 2013 at 12:17 pm #277528
what about WebTherapy? Streep should be nominated for guest comedy actress. she was a hoot!June 1, 2013 at 12:19 pm #277529
Web Therapy will continue to be nominated as a “Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program” opposite webisodes.June 2, 2013 at 2:38 am #277530
What about shows exclusive to Netflix or Hulu?
Are Fresh Meat, Misfits, Peep Show, Pramface or anything similar eligible in the Main Categories?
Also, did Friday Night Dinner air this season in the US or not?June 3, 2013 at 1:55 pm #277531
^ Anyone?June 3, 2013 at 2:25 pm #277532
I’d love to know about Fresh Meat and Friday Night Dinner, too.June 3, 2013 at 2:30 pm #277533
Netflix has 4 eligible series — 2 in comedy (Arrested Development and Bad Samaritans) and 2 in drama (Hemlock Grove and House of Cards).
I don’t think any of those British shows are eligible. They’re not co-produced by a US network.
