    Claws and Survivor’s Remorse are never getting nominated for Emmys.

    Whats taking so long to get a dramedy category?

    Probably (a) a definition of “dramedy” that everybody can agree on, and (b) the fact that they would have to add a number of categories, which “of course” would have to be on the telecast, which is already at the three-hour breaking point, and I doubt they will go back to four hours as the whole “show it live out west at 5:00 and repeat it at 8:00” thing seems to have caught on – the options would be, (a) 4-8 and 8-12, (b) 5-9 and 9-1, or (c) don’t show it live out west any more.

    Maybe switch to “half-hour series” and “hour series”?

    Instead of introducing a third category (dramedy), it would be better to have Outstanding One Hour Series and Outstanding Half-Hour Series, instead of Drama and Comedy.

    What about 42 minute streaming shows. What about Horace and Pete that had some 25 minute episodes and some over an hour? I’d prefer one Outstanding Program category.

    40+ minutes would qualify as One Hour. Shows with different duration for every episode would be a situation Dramedies 2.0, aka, the problem we’re discussing now. Ideally, the Academy would decide about them.

    I think I’m the only one who really doesn’t care. The only show I might switch is Shameless. Transparent and Atlanta for example are more than funny enough to me to compete as comedy. There are dramas with really different tones as well. Stranger Things is a lot lighter and fun than something like The Americans but no one is saying they shouldn’t compete in the same category.

    I think we should change to 45 minute and 30 minute categories. With I Hate SuzieNormal People and I May Destroy You popularising 30 minute Drama/Dramedy formats things are going to start confusing soon.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Splitting awards based on runtime is far worse than splitting them based on genre. There’s no need for a change.
