    I know nowadays people have to literally sign up to be nominated. Was it always like that? in the 70s and 80s?

    I understand that the ballot used to indicate whether someone submitted him/herself or if the studio/network did.

    This is an interesting question.

    It seems submitting an achievement for consideration was part of the process in the 80s. John Larroquette stopped after winning four consecutive Emmys for “Night Court”. And Bill Cosby was never nominated for “The Cosby Show” because he chose not to enter himself.

    It has always been the case, or at least started when Rod Serling was president. Almost all people are submitted by their studios or networks. Of course, a few submit themselves. And some make it known to their teams that they do not want to be submitted at all (Bill Cosby in the 80s, John Larroquette and Candice Bergen after winning so often, Alec Baldwin this year for SVU).

    So I guess that means George C. Scott submitted himself for all those nominations he got after his Oscar decline.  Interesting and a little surprising.

    Who submitted Matthew Perry the year he had to withdraw his nomination because somebody had submitted him for Lead instead of Supporting for Friends back when there was some sort of agreement that the six stars would all enter in Supporting?
