Should Each Emmy category have 10 nominees?
Yes
No, we need less nominees
Only Series Categories
Only for Acting
Only certain categories
Fuck you for putting this thought into the universe
Maybe more nominees but 10 is too much
Other
Maybe

    Yes but Tom also continually made false equivalences to the Oscars which (I’m sure he knows) only has UP TO ten nominees and has tended to settle at 8 most years since the expansion. I feel 7 nominees is fine. I don’t think expanding the program category would include more fringe contenders we would just get more years of Big Bang Theory and its ilk clogging up the top races. Moreover, if all series were combined into one category than inevitably comedies would get short shrift. In essence, fuck no.

    Not to mention the false equivalence of Best Picture and each of the Outstanding Series categories.

    I always have 10 nominees in my personal awards, but that’s because I watch so many shows and have so many people I like to personally recognize. But for the Emmys I think that is way too much. And it’s a lot to ask of Emmy voters to watch enough TV to even fill out that many possible nominees. So while I like that it would give us more options for underdogs and interesting choices being nominated, it’s just not realistic.

    I’m really only here to watch Riley clock this in one sentence lol

    But for reals, no Id prefer the teams behind the tv series to have some competition putting some quality stuff if they want a spot versus putting minimum effort to get an easier nomination.

    No, it’s not a charity. And the results from expanding of the writing/directing slots don’t help either…that comedy category was asscheeks.

    Whoop diddy scoop!

    I would love to see it happen just so more shows and performances can be rewarded but for reasons already pointed out, it probably wouldn’t work.

    The Emmys do not need to be even more diluted than they already are.
