    In the 2019 EMMY rule book, there is a vague mention under the rules for performers.

    https://www.emmys.com/sites/default/files/Downloads/2019-rules-procedures-v6.pdf

    “A brief cameo appearance is not eligible for entry.”

    Interesting. So what exactly qualifies as a brief cameo appearance? Who makes that call? That is quite a thing to leave open to interpretation.

    The only time limit define I see written to provide any guideline would be the 5% rule for supporting performances in miniseries. Aka the Ellen Burstyn Mrs. Harris rule.

    Based on that should we assume that any performer nominee appearing in less than 5% of their work is in fact a brief cameo appearance? If not, than why?

    Maybe someone walking in to screen and picking up a coffee type situation? No lines?

    Kirsten Dunst in “USS Callister” (Black Mirror). Though I guess that can’t be even considered a cameo, rather something smaller.

    It’s been almost a week to the day since Cherry Jones won an award for a 2 scene roughly 2 minute performance and no one has even bothered to write an article on this site advocating for a fix to this screwed up system.

    What a lethargic community. If I worked at any studio or rival campaign I’d be demanding answers and raising a stink.

    Have you considered the idea that some two scene, two minute performances are worthy of accolade?

    Jones may be a poor winner on merit, but small performances of that size can still be powerful and interesting. No reason to limit their eligibility.

    Bull.

    But keep shilling for the man by defending the indefensible. It’s par for the course around here apparently.

    Random, but related tangent: It’s sad “Mrs. Harris” often gets remembered for the Ellen Burstyn controversy. It’s a wonderful film, and I stand by this: it’s Annette Bening’s best performance (and this is coming from someone who believes she should have a couple of Oscars on her mantle, too).
