    Here are the changes that I noticed to the 2017 Emmy rules:

    There are some changes to the categories:
    * There is now a Reality Show Casting category
    * Interactive Media Creative Achievement Within a Scripted Program; this is not for interactive media actually embedded in a program somehow, but for interactive media based on a scripted program (e.g. webisodes of a series)
    * Interactive Media Creative Achievement Within an Uncripted Program; this includes all nonfiction, documentary, and reality shows, regardless of how scripted they are
    * Interactive Media Innovation – this is a juried award
    * Music Supervisor – “the television craftsperson who creatively contributes to the story, character development and overall narrative of a program by engaging in song selection, guiding original song creation and production, overseeing on-camera music performances, participating in the creative aspects of music spotting and contributing to the creation of a unique music aesthetic”
    * The existing Single-Camera Series Cinematography category has been split into separate Hour and Half-Hour categories

    The titles of the two Costumes for a Series / Limited Series / Special categories have changed, from “Costumes for a Period/Fantasy (or Contemporary) Series” to “Period/Fantasy (or Contemporary) Costumes for a Series.” However, the award descriptions still say that the shows themselves must fit the category; also, more than half of the costumes must fit the cetegory. In other words, contemporary costumes in a period/fantasy show will not be considered, and vice versa.

    Someone who appears in a variety sketch show does not have to host in order to enter as a Guest Actor/Actress for that show, provided the person does not appear in at least half of the show’s episodes.

    A person must appaer in at least half of a short format series’s episodes in order to enter as a short format series actor/actress.

    Clarification: a show like “Hairspray Live” is considered a “Dramatic” Special and not a Variety Special for purposes of the Directing categories

    A show with main titles of 15 seconds or less that change from one week to the next may enter up to 2 minutes’ worth as a single entry in the Main Title category

    Two Stunt Coordinators cannot enter in a single entry unless they can show they worked as a team; they can enter separately for the same series

    I am not always in favor of additional categories considering the Emmys already have so many but I think that Music Supervision is a welcome addition. Big Little Lies immediately stands out to me from the series currently on the air.
