    Every year we wonder if the rules will change? Lately, the Emmys have been slow to introduce major rule changes. Will we see this again?

    There SHOULD be rule changes to prevent a Cherry Jones type win again. That was atrocious.

    And hopefully the Emmys see how bad they look rewarding Game of Thrones and fix that mess.

    But overall, I think the winners were mostly well received and there will be minimal rule changes.

    If anything, we need to see changes in nominations. Specifically changing being able to vote for how many you want. Without that rule we very likely would have had less Game of Thrones nominees. I believe that rule leads to less passion picks and more picks with wide exposure.

    Well this isn’t anything new, but they really should change the whole under 50% guest rule. It’s stopped some very deserving performances from being nominated these past few years. I personally believe it’d be fair to change the rule so that it’s no more than 50% of the episodes.

    They should go back to picking 6 contenders per category during the nominations phase. But no drastic changes to the voting, it works perfectly.

    Lock all HBO voters out of voting

    Serious answer: A limit of the amount of people for one show nominated in a category. That was why we didn’t get a GOT Supporting Actress win. Also, change the Guest rules.

    No comedy or drama series with fewer than 8 episodes will be allowed to compete in those series categories. Rather, they will be shepherded into a new category called Best Short Form TV Presentation. Any shows with 8 or more episodes will be allowed to compete in comedy and drama series. No more Fleagags. No more.

    In an ideal world.

    Not a rule, but Variety needs to go away to the Creative Arts ceremony. Only people excited to see these repeat winners were their grandmothers. Everybody else had to react like “SNL? What the fuck?” or “John Oliver AGAIN?” or “Why are they taking so long to get to the stage”.

    Nobody was actually interested or excited. Nobody.

    Well lets wait until Kristen Bell is elegible for something with less than 8 episodes and see how this post ages.

    It will age quite well, thank you very much. This is bigger than any one person. 132 minutes for an entire season is just too forking short. And Bell has indicated that when the Good Place ends, so will her TV career.

    That is actually really sad. She is too young to retire.

    They need to do something about glorified cameos winning the guest categories because voters didn’t bother to inform themselves on the performances.

    1. A 5 minute screen minimum time for guests in speaking roles.
    or
    2. Blue ribbons panels simply for the creative arts performer categories that are lesser seen by the voters. The 4 Guest acting categories, Short Form acting, and Voice Over/Narrator.

    There needs to be a jury for guest acting and something needs to be done about the vote splitting. I don’t know what but something needs to be done. Quite a few nominees that deserved to win these last few years lost because of a vote split and that’s just unfair.

    The Drama Directing category should raise a huge red flag for them regarding the fact that the vote splitting issue must be resolved already… not sure how

    Yeah this totally needs to be rectified.

    Install the 5% rule for guest acting categories. Eliminate the “under 50%” eligibility rule for guest acting categories. Change that to “at most 50%.”
