    I just finished watching the acceptance speeches I wanted to and I have to say the producers of this telecast really messed up which categories to choose to play clips for and which not. At least last year it made sense to not have clips for the categories towards the back of the ceremony due to time but surely we could have had clips for any of the supporting categories that weren’t the limited ones? Especially when we had such a diverse range of performances nominated in all 4 comedy and drama supporting categories this year. In the drama and comedy supporting actress categories alone all 16 nominees had worthy clips with some of the nominees in the former category in particular having some of the best acted scenes on television this past television cycle.

    Likewise it was great to have clips for the limited/movie directing category with how monumental feats in directing some of the nominees in that category were but why couldn’t we have clips for any of the writing categories when drama writing had some of the most talked about scenes of the past television year nominated, there were fantastic note-worthy clips and one-liners in each of the eight comedy writing nominees and we again had strong feats in writing in all three of Maid, Station Eleven and The White Lotus this year. At least with the other aforementioned categories this was a one year occurrence but every year we always get cases where the producers decide to skip over showing clips for the writing nominees and it’s just wrong on so many levels. The fact that television is the writers medium aside and that by not promoting the field you’re just feeding into the systemic cultural problem that writing is for some reason an “unworthy” career choice, the whole reason these awards exist is really as a form of advertisement for these shows and one of the reasons people have become so glued to television recently is because of its writing so it’s almost as if you’re underselling that. Do better next time Television Academy!

    They need to cut the Variety categories out. no need to see John Oliver and SNL year after year.

    I’m fine with Reality Competition / Reality Host staying just because that usually engages the audience in some way or another.

    cut Talk Series, Sketch Series, and Variety Writing and we couldve had longer speeches and clips

    If we have a pic of Hendricks holding an Emmy then we have our trio or redheads done wrong.
