    My apologies if I have asked this before – I thought I did, but I couldn’t find it when I tried doing a search, but I am not particularly confident of this board’s search capability.

    Anyway, when the Comedy/Drama Series DVDs get sent out to the final judging panel members, are there three “sets” of six DVDs (one set to one-third of the panel, another set to another one-third, and the third set to the remaining one-third), or can two sets containing the same DVD for a particular show be different?

    For example, let’s assume that “panelist X” is sent a set of the Comedy Series DVDs.  Do all of the other panelists who get the same 30 Rock DVD as panelist X get the same DVDs for the other five shows that panelist X got as well?

    He means does a voter who receives Tape A of Breaking Bad always receive Tape A of Homeland or is the system completely randomized?

    Completely random. A voter might receive the A set from Breaking Bad, the B set from Homeland, and the C set from Mad Men. Or any and all combinations you can imagine.

    I think you’re asking if ‘Panelist X’ gets Tape A of all six nominees. The answer is no. A voter can get Tape A from 30 Rock, but Tape C from Modern Family and Tape B from Louie. It’s all random. Basically around 100 copies of each shows Tape A go to the 300 voters of that category, same with Tape B and C.

    God, I’ll hate to be an Emmy voter (No offense, helmetz).

    Completely random. A voter might receive the A set from Breaking Bad, the B set from Homeland, and the C set from Mad Men. Or any and all combinations you can imagine.

    Just to clarify: can one voter can receive the A set from Breaking Bad, the B set from Homeland, and the C set from Mad Men, while another can receive the A sets from all three?

    Which brings up another question: this means there are 729 possible combinations.  I assume there are fewer than 730 menbers of the final voting panel for Drama Series.  Is it possible for two voters to get the same six sets, or do they make sure that everybody gets a different set?
    (For those of you who missed that day in math class, if there are 60 members of the panel, which I think is low for Drama Series, then if each set is randomly chosen, there is only about 1 chance in 12 of everybody having a different group of six sets.  If the panel size is 70, it’s about 1 in 30; if 80, 1 in 90; if 90, 1 in 310.)

    Boomer confirmed there are ~300 voters on the series panels.

    I don’t know why I thought he had said something like 30 for most categories, but 90 for series…

    Anyway, with 300, the chance of all 300 getting a different set is about the same as tossing a coin 105 times and having all 105 tosses be the same.  Even only 200 would still be 1 in 12 trillion.
