    I found this on Emmys website;
    http://www.emmys.com/news/awards-news/infographic-how-emmy-won

    And though we already knew everything about that subject, I’ve enjoyed the explanation with these images and it can help the newbies who are confused with all those Emmy voting talk.

    And it also includes a very interesting fact, I think none of us have been aware of before;

    The largest peer group in the TV Academy is: TV Executives with 2,320 members.
    The smallest: Motion&Title Design with 162 members.

    I think that increases even more the importance of PGA in the Best Series races, though I’m not sure if executives considered to be Producers and can vote for PGA, or not? And remember we also have peer groups like Producers, Executive Producers, Public Relations and things like that which probably also has a great numbers of voters in the Academy in additon to this branch.
    And this fact also proves that all the other branches including Acting branch, have even less members than that, maybe even lesser than 2,000. To me, the lesser the better. What are your thoughts? I’m particularly happy now that I finally have a clue about the length of the Acting branch.

    Edit: I just realised I couldn’t share any pictures, added the link instead.

    Even if there’s overlap between the voters of the PGA and the Emmys, they vote later, so it has no impact on the race. The latest winner is Breaking Bad, which of course is not eligible anymore.

    But one’s preferences couldn’t have changed much just after 6 months. So that puts the other 3 eligible nominees; GoT, HoC and DA in a good position. Downton and Homeland haven’t even aired any new episodes after that ceremony. Though Mad Men is an exception since this is its final season and producers may feel differently about this one than other past 2 seasons they have snubbed. Considering Orange also won the Pga in the comedy side, I think this logic only helps us to ignore Homeland which is not saying very much 🙁

    Though maybe they always follow the footsteps of TV academy and nominate what TV Academy has prevously nominated in that year and this logic is completely irrelevant.

    You don’t understand, we’re talking about different seasons. The PGA goes by the same window the Emmy do, but they give the awards months later. So it really doesn’t say anything that the 4th season of GoT was nominated by the PGA, since that season already won a bunch of technical and no major Emmys last year.

    I understood perfectly. But they’re not robots. Yes they were supposed to vote for last years calendar but they voted THIS YEAR. They voted for Downton Abbey’s 4th season but by the time they’ve casted their ballots they’ve already seen the 5th season, so obviously have been affected by that. They’ve also already seen Homeland’s new season but it didn’t get much attention. It’s like Oitnb’s relationship with Emmys. Voters have seen the 3rd season while they were voting for s2. And remember that they have 5 nominees in each category, 1 less than Emmys so you can understand which Emmy series nominee was probably at 6th place by just looking at who they have snubbed. Last years unlucky show was Mad Men, they didn’t got in the PGA for the last two years. So it’s extra hard for them to gain the support they’ve lost in the producers branch this year while for shows like House of Cards and Game of Thrones only need to save their places.
