Pardon me for being The Rules Guy again, but Reality Costumes has gone back to being a Juried award – no nominations will be announced. Also, it is possible to have multiple (or none, for that matter) winners.March 17, 2021 at 4:54 pm #1204141781
Found a few more:
Period/Character Hairstyling and Period/Character Makeup are now areas (instead of “normal” categories).
Variety/Reality/Nonfiction (and stop-motion animation) Costumes is back to being a juried award; it became an area in 2016.March 10, 2021 at 1:41 pm #1204105550
Reminder: the earlier announced recombining of Talk and Sketch Series into a single Variety Series category was reversed. There will be separate Variety Talk Series and Variety Sketch Series categories in 2021.March 7, 2021 at 6:44 pm #1204092318
Forgive my ignorance, but what’s the difference? Is Character just genre makeup?
I think the difference is, period is just generic (but set at least 25 years int the past), while character is makeup that makes someone look like a specific person/character.March 7, 2021 at 11:13 am #1204090342
The rules have been posted online (the latest update is 2/19), and I noticed some other changes, as well as some corrections/clarifications to the earlier changes:
The previously announced combination of the Variety Talk and Sketch Series has been removed; they are listed as separate categories. (Story from Variety)
A show that enters in the Special Effects for a Series category cannot also enter in the Special Effects for a Single Program category. (Also, a TV-Movie must enter in the Series category.)
The “50% rule” appears to have been reinstated in all Areas, except possibly in costuming (the rules contradict themselves): if, in an Area, none of the nominees get at least 50% “yes” votes, then there is no Emmy winner that year. (What has happened in the past if this happens is, the nominees are informed that there is no winner so they don’t have to bother showing up to the ceremony; the category is skipped from the ceremony itself, but the fact that there is no winner is mentioned in the Academy’s post-ceremony list of winners.)
There is now a tiebreaker rule specified in the rules (it is not listed as a “new rule,” but was not in any previous year’s rules): if there is a tie, whoever did better in the nominations round (the example given in the rules is, whoever got more first-place votes) wins. It does not say if this applies to an area where none of the nominees gets 90% or more “yes” votes.
Clarification on the casting rule: for a show in its second or third season, anyone not in the current casting staff but receiving an
“original casting by” credit is eligible for a casting Emmy if at least half of the cast which they cast are still on the show and they did not already win a casting Emmy. Winning an Emmy in the past for a show does not affect the eligiblity of someone still casting for that show in its current season.
Period/Character Makeup nominations will be divided into period and character, with nominations from each in proportion to submissions,
with at least one nomination from each group that has at least three entries.
“Hanging” episodes must air by the start of nomination voting, in addition to being “posted on an eligible platform” by 5/31, in order to be eligible for the current season
The host of a short form variety, reality, or nonfiction series receives an Emmy if the show wins its corresponding series category’s Emmy.
In order to be eligible for variety/nonfiction/reality hairstyling, the hairstyling artist(s) must have physically designed and applied the wigs to the hair of the on-air talent. Merely doing touch-ups or other maintenance to a wig applied by the on-air talent themselves is ineligible.
The scripted program choreography category will have nominations and must have at least one winner, in the same way that the reality/variety choreography category does.October 28, 2020 at 1:25 pm #1203808145
And if The Masked Singer isn’t enough masked entertainment for you, starting in December, Fox presents…The Masked Dancer!
The list of awards the “celebrities” have won include “10 World Dancing titles,” so I wonder if the masked “partners” will be unmasked and named as well. Somehow, I don’t expect the celebrities to have to guess who the partners are…October 12, 2020 at 3:38 pm #1203773653
I got Joey but for the witch clue, as a joke I said Melissa (witch) and Joey. But those owls are extremely country. So whatever.
Lisa Hartman Black played the title role in Tabitha, who was a witch (the witch daughter of Sam and Darrin in Bewitched, to be precise), and you can’t get much more country than she and ClintSeptember 25, 2020 at 12:48 pm #1203734950
Animated Program: the announced black’ish animated episode. Yes, it can be entered in Animated Program along with the series being entered in Comedy Series, although the voice actors cannot enter in the voiceover category if they are also entered for the same character in any of the acting categories.September 24, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203732152
for vegas I’ll guess:
Two problems with Loudermilk. First, I think he does most of his stunts outdoors, and second, I don’t think they have ever had somebody not in the top 10 be in the Vegas show.September 24, 2020 at 6:19 am #1203731530
My predictions for the Vegas show acts:
and two “wild cards”:
Bello Sisters (and their father)
The Vegas show was pretty much made for the last three.
Also note that, according to the closing credits, Brandon and Broken Roots may accept a cash prize (amount unspecified) instead of the Kia K5.September 23, 2020 at 5:38 pm #1203730946
How are these decided?
There is the BAFTA nominated The Victim which I think is on Britbox in the States. Saw it on the BBC here in the UK. Honestly it’s a masterpiece so I won’t be surprised if Kelly MacDonald (from Boardwalk Empire, Trainspotting and Nanny McPhee) broke into this race.
This site is as close as I have seen to “official rules” for the International EmmysSeptember 21, 2020 at 6:55 am #1203725065
I had hoped that there was Big Mouth momentum, but somehow Rick and Morty wins animated program!
You would think that if any show had “momentum,” it would be Bojack Horseman for its final season.
It’s a little hard to believe that Moral Orel and Titan Maximum ended up with more Emmys in their runs than Bojack Horseman did.September 20, 2020 at 1:39 pm #1203720921
There’s an Eddie Murphy acceptance speech, but I didn’t see it on the show. I’m assuming he did it after the fact.
It wasn’t on the show, and, in fact, neither the Emmys.com website (that has the other acceptance speeches) nor the Television Academy’s YouTube page has it yet.
However, it was posted to the Academy’s Twitter feed.September 20, 2020 at 8:27 am #1203720148
Pop TV actually has three wins. One Day at a Time won a multi-cam award a few nights ago.
That list appeared to leave out the juried awards for some reason. (Adult Swim’s 3 wins for Primal appear to be missing as well.)
Here’s the list the Television Academy has: (it’s on the second page of the PDF)
HBO, Netflix – 19
Disney+, NBC – 8
ABC, National Geographic, VH1 – 5
Adult Swim, Amazon Prime – 4
CNN, FOX, Pop TV – 3
CBS, Quibi – 2
A&E, AMC, Apple TV, BBC America, Discovery, EPIX, ESPN, FX Networks, History, Hulu, MagicLabsMedia.com, Oculus, Showtime, USA Network, YouTube – 1
