Exclusive: Have we sneakily uncovered the secret Emmy Awards ceremony rundown?

To promote Monday’s Emmy Awards ceremony, the Television Academy and photographers have been uploading pictures from the Nokia Theatre this week. Based on those photos, we have used our best “Sherlock” skills to determine the secretive ceremony rundown for the 26 categories.

Photo cards used as seat holders are a regular tradition at awards shows. They help the directors and camera operators run through all of their potential moves before the actual live show. Looking at our photo above, you can see that Julia Roberts‘ (“The Normal Heart“) category of Best TV Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress is listed as A9 (the ninth awards category of the night). Matthew McConaughey (“True Detective“) is both A24 (Best Drama Actor) and A26 (as a producer for Best Drama Series). Taylor Schilling (“Orange is the New Black“) is A6, so her category of Best Comedy Actress is the sixth of the evening.

Emmy Editor Slugfests:
Chris Beachum vs. Rob Licuria
Marcus Dixon vs. Daniel Montgomery

Based on those cards and many others, this rundown is most likely the schedule for Monday’s ceremony. Please keep in mind that producers might decide to move some of these categories around in the next 48 hours.
