I was checking the 2015 Primetime Emmy ballots and I ask myself this question: if the Daytime Emmy ceremonies are eligible for a Primetime Emmy nomination in the Special Class Program, why are the Primetime Emmy ceremonies not elegibles as well? Because they nominated the Oscars, Tony, Grammy ceremonies, etc, but not themselves. It would be like an Emmyception? LOL
Conflict of interest with voters.
Yeah, I’ve wondered that too. And I think it’s a shame because they deserve some recognition as well, especially their writers. Sometimes I enjoy their jokes more than I enjoy Golden Globes or Oscars
That interest with voters argument does not make sense because ”Emmy broadcast” and ”Emmy voters” are two completely different things. The show is generally produced by only one people or network, is written by 20 writer at most, and directed by only one person and his team. The rest of the 20,000 Emmy voters do not have any idea about the preparition process or anything.
Someone like Julia Louis-Dreyfus is both an Emmy voter and an Oscar voter, but she doesn’t arrange neither of the ceremonies, she just gets to vote for them and can attend the night if she’s been invited, that is all. So if she can vote for “Oscars” in the Special Class Program, she should have right to vote for the Emmys as well. There is no difference between awarding the Golden Globes and awarding the Emmys. Because they award “the ceremony” not “the organization”.
They basically don’t give an award because it would look them weird from the outside. ”And the Emmy goes to… Emmy.”
But the other award organizations like DGA and WGA can still award them as far as I’m concerned.
I think the only solution to this problem could be to air the Primetime Emmy Ceremony in the daylight so it could be eligible for Daytime Emmys. Lmao.
But the voters are affiliated with the Emmys as a whole. As such, voting for the Emmy ceremony would breach the conditions of voting.
