    I’m not totally sure what the differences are, but what are likely contenders this year, aside from the usual of:

    Special Class Program – Tonys
    Oscars
    Golden Globes

    Variety Special – Kennedy Center Honors

    I assume Adele Live in New York City (NBC) and Bey’s Lemonade (HBO) will be contenders? Also, Grease (Fox) and The Wiz (NBC)?

    Grease: Live and The Wiz Live! are Special Class Programs. I think Lemonade is one as well. HBO’s On the Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay Z was nominated last year.

    Special Class Program
    88th Academy Awards (ABC)
    * Grease: Live (FOX)
    Lemonade (HBO)
    69th Tony Awards (CBS)
    The Wiz Live! (NBC)

    Variety Special
    * Adele Live in New York City (NBC)
    Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo (HBO)
    Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert (AMC)
    Kennedy Center Honors (CBS)
    Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows (NBC)

    The Golden Globes got two Emmy nominations last year:

    Outstanding Special Class Program
    Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special

    Nothing more really needs to be said about how ridiculous the existence of the special class category is.

    Kris Tapley says Lemonade will be in Variety Special.

    I’d love it if Adele were indeed there too; clash of the titans at both Emmys and Grammys.
