    6 for 6 so far, with only Nonfiction Picture Editing to go

    That kind of sucks. I don’t see how it’s even eligible. And why is it not in one of two the main documentary categories?

    I’m still not really a fan of works being qualified to compete at both the Oscars and the Emmys

    I agree, I think it’s ridiculous tbh.

    Can someone explain to me how Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking, and Documentary or Nonfiction Special are different categories? Oscar nominated docs get nominated in both categories.

    okay, voters we get it. you’re all mad Free Solo didn’t get a top prize award.

    but really, it’s time to the academies to discuss what qualify a cinema and tv film. or if that line is all blurred now and there’s no need for such distinction. this double standards are making no sense

    This is from the Emmy Rules description of the Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking category:

    “This award is not meant to duplicate the recognition given documentary/nonfiction programming in the other categories and areas of the competition; rather, its purpose is to both honor and encourage exceptional achievement in one or more of the traditional
    components of the filmmakers’ art:
    1. Profound social impact
    2. Significant innovation of form
    3. Remarkable mastery of filmmaking technique
    Judging criteria will include: filmmaker’s expressed vision, compelling power of storytelling, artistry or innovation of craft, and the capacity to inform, transport, impact, enlighten, and create a moving and indelible work that elevates the art of documentary filmmaking.”

    Free Solo isn’t even that good. It really only deserves cinematography but even then Our Planet is probably better.
