    What are the Emmy eligibility rules concerning the recent “Live from Lincoln Center: Sweeney Todd in Concert” (with Bryn Terfel, Emma Thompson, and what I assume are “Audra McDonald and her Stunt Double” as the beggar woman), given that the show itself was performed a number of times and wasn’t necessarily a “television event”? Is it just certain categories for which it isn’t eligible, or does this make it ineligible in all categories?

    I’m not sure. Last year they played Company and it was great but it didn’t score any nominations so I don’t know where they stand

    Live From Lincoln Center programming is always submitted in the Outstanding Special Class Program category and often gets nominated there, including as recently as last year for Carousel. I’ve never seen performers submitted for this programming, but, if they were, they’d probably be submitted in the Miniseries or Made for Television Movie categories, as PBS has done with some similar Great Performances programming or NBC did with The Sound of Music Live! (and will likely do again with Peter Pan Live!). And I don’t think that the performance had to be originally performed for the television special to be eligible, as far as I know.

    Great Performances broadcast the tour production of Sweeney Todd back in the 1985 Emmy year and George Hearn and Angela Lansbury were nominated in the category Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program. Hearn won. That category was retired after the 2008 Emmys, so I guess if they were submitted it would indeed have to be in the miniseries/TV movie acting categories.

    1983 was the only time that Live from Lincoln Center performances have been nominated.
