    I have noticed that a lot of cities put out their best of film awards around December-time, and it led me to think, why doesn’t the same cities do same for television around the end of the Emmy awards circuit (in May or June). It would be very interesting to see what all the critics of different cities think is the best of television in several categories. That’s just me, though.

    Yeah, they’d probably have to form their own groups/associations first.

    I like that we now have the Critics’ Choice Awards in addition to the TCA Awards for TV. I wouldn’t mind seeing a top-level elite critics group formed, like the TV version National Society of Film Critics, but I don’t think we need much more than that since TV, like film, is also honored by the Golden Globes and all the industry groups like WGA, PGA, DGA, etc.

    But for the precursor awards to have a meaningful influence on Emmy voters, they would need to come out a little earlier, give Emmy voters more time to watch some of critics’ nominees before forming their opinions and submitting their ballots.

    B/c very few people would care?

    I mean, in theory there’s an “Emmy season” like there’s an “Oscar season.” But even the awards-obsessed folk generally have way more excitement over Oscar season, and it’s not b/c there aren’t city awards.

    Emmy coverage does not draw nearly as attention as Oscar coverage, so there is not a demand for it.

    But also, why are there so many critics’ groups for film anyway?  Are they really needed?  I think no.

    Right now, we have five groups covering television in general:

    • Emmys
    • Globes
    • TCAs
    • Critics’ Choice
    • Satellites

    Then we have all of the guild awards, plus the Saturn Awards for genre stuff.  That is a pretty solid lineup to me.

    Ugh. I don’t even like the “regional critics awards” they do for the movies. Let’s not ruin Emmy season.

    Actually, what’s nice about the Emmy season now is that there are so few direct precursors (the guild awards and golden globes are long gone, only a couple critics awards), that voters feel more comfortable giving us at least a few genuine shockers. I don’t want the Emmy nominations to become more predictable than they are now because voters are just following the critics choices.

    Something that I have been wondering about lately is how much longer it will make sense to have the Emmys in the middle of the year as opposed to the end/beginning of the year.  My guess is that it will be this way forever to separate it from the Oscars if nothing else, but it is interesting how irrelevant the September to May calendar becomes as the even the big four program shows like Sleepy Hollow and The Following and how much simpler it might be if the guilds, Globes and Emmys all had the same eligibility period.

    I don’t see what the big deal is. It may make the Emmy race just as, if not more, competitve than the Oscars, gaining more fans and leaving people excited too. But I guess it’s in the eye of the beholder. I suppose having few precursors aren’t too bad.

    Also there’s the Emmys’ tape system which makes it a different ball game from Oscars.
    For a movie, you either watch it or not. But TV, you could watch just the “best” episode from each nominee, or at least in theory you could a bunch of eps from each.  So I don’t think “precursors” are ever gonna be the same for Emmys.

    Are the Paley Awards officially dead? I know they were at least pushed back.
