    I’m wondering, how do ties in nominations happen. Like Comedy supporting actress, and lead drama actress last year. Did the people in 6th and 7th, really get the same ammount of votes? Or is it like when Barbra Streisand and Katherin Hepburn tied for the Oscar, because the votes they got were in a few percent of each other. Or is it something competely differnet entirely?

    I thought the rule was in the event of a tie, there has to be a tiebraker.

    Without bothering to go over to the Emmy site right now to check the rulebook, I believe that if the sixth and seventh contenders are within two percent, they both get in.  As for winners, the preferential ballot makes ties extremely unlikely.

    It’s other award, but do you know if and or how a tie happens ate the Grammys?

    Shirley Knight and Judy Davis tied for TV Movie/Mini Series Supporting Actress in 1995. Was that a result of the old rules? Do/did TV Movie and Miniseries categories use preferential voting?

    When determining a winner, I believe in case there are two persons with equal lowest scores (meaning they were mostly ranked around the top), the person who gets more no.1 votes will be the winner. If they still have the same amount of no.1 votes, then who has more no.2 votes. If they get equal scores with the exact same amount of no.1-6 votes, then both of them are announced winners, right?

    Note that the original post is referring to ties for nominations, and not ties for the Emmy itself.

    The 2% rule is one way (if the entry with the fifth-most votes on nominating ballots is 2% or lower ahead of the sixth-place nominee, both are nominated), but, according to the rules, this rule does not apply in categories where there are normally six nominees.

    It is quite possible for there to be a tie for the last spot, since it is based on the number of votes each entry gets.  For categories norlmally with 6 nominations, the number of nominees is chosen in this order (choose the one that comes first such that nobody who is nominated has the same number of votes as anybody who is not nominated): 6, 7, 5, 8, 4.  If none of these are possible (e.g. there is a six-way tie for fourth), the Awards Committee decides how many nominees there are.  (In a category that normally has five nominees, the order is 5, 6, 4, 7, 3.)
