    I am surprised by this move but also I am glad they are doing this because the show was getting way too long and the winners were rushed in their big moment. I am curious to see how they split the show and also wonder if other categories from the main show will be moved over like Supporting in a Miniseries/TV Movie.

    They really should have made like the Grammys and condensed categories instead.

    That’s great news. I still want them to present at least one random below the line category on the main telecast(one by one every year) but airing the edited version on ABC will do just fine. 
    If Oscar watchers can take all those technical categories, one category shouldn’t hurt anyone. Primetime Emmy Awards should be about the celebration of all people that has worked on small screen in the past year, not only actors. I hope you’re right on your last guess because presenting 12 acting categories in the same night have always been ridiculous.

    Well, the condensed Grammys still have (I think) 83 categories, Primetime Emmys alone have 26 categories, and Oscars have 24.

    And the Grammys show only a fraction of the winners onscreen.
    I believe the Creative Arts Emmys have about the same number of categories as the whole of the Grammys.

    It should also be noted that not all categories that are being presented on Creative Arts are technical categories.
    I mean, The Jinx was one of the most talked about TV moments of 2015 and Virunga was apparently good enough to be nominated for an Oscar afterward but you wouldn’t hear anything about them by just watching the Primetime Emmy Awards. Doing something for TV really sucks even if what you’ve accomplished turns out to be better than any of the Oscar nominees combined.
    They only focus on fictive shows and for some reason, Directing-Variety Special is more important/interesting category than Variety Special, Animated Program or Documentary Series to them.
    I admit that majority of normal viewers might be bored by those technical categories but things like Best Commercial or Best Main Title Design looks fun, intriguing and presentable to me.

    “Highlights from the two shows will be combined into one special for telecast prior to the Primetime Emmy Awards telecast on ABC.”

    Translation: the four Guest Acting categories, the two Variety Show categories that trade places between the main and Creative Arts shows each year, and probably Music & Lyrics (especially if a “name” wins), Animated Program, Character Voiceover, and Choreography (especially if it’s on ABC and Dancing With the Stars wins).  That should fill the hour before the Red Carpet Special starts.

    Good move especially with a special before the awards.

    This is definitely good news. The winners get more time for their speeches, and we on GoldDerby don’t have to spend 4 hours straight on Saturday night following the coverage on the site since the awards are recorded before being broadcast.

    You must have missed this part:
    “As with last year, the plan is for FXX to air an edited two-hour version of the show.”

    In other words, GoldDerby will still have to be there as it happens.  (Either that, or everybody just to to the Emmys site each night to get the list of winners from the Television Academy.)  However, instead of spending 4 hours on a Saturday night, it will be more like 2-3 hours on Saturday & Sunday nights.

    And since these are Bob Bain-produced, hopefully the Academy doesn’t change the rules to say, “The producers may choose any of the top four nominees in the voting in each category as the winner,” the way the producers could when he produced the Teen Choice and American Country Awards.  (SInce he also produced last year’s Creative Arts telecast, I probably did say this last year as well…)
