For each category, we will go with the number set forth by new Emmy rules. The only exceptions are limited leads, which should both have 6 and not 5. We also have some categories of our own (ensemble, breakthrough, performer, episode), so those will have 6 each.July 11, 2020 at 8:00 am #1203581135
I’ve talked to several voters in recent years when this system started. Some said they mark everything and everyone they enjoy watching. Others said they are very strategic, maybe selecting 3-4 per category so that each one of those has more weight on their own ballot.
