Dumb question but who selects the images for the performers on the ballot?
From the rules:
“PHOTO REQUEST: By the entry deadline (June 5), all performers and hosts must upload a headshot for the ballot.
The photo you upload will appear on the ballot “as is” and cannot be changed after the entry deadline. If nominated, this photo will also be used for the Academy’s website, the Emmy Awards program book, usage for all media and promotion of the show and entrant in perpetuity, the Emmy Award ceremonies and for lead performers only, the televised nomination announcements. Please note that the photography will be used in high definition and projected very large for the nomination announcements and award ceremonies so make sure you select the correct photo and that it meets the requirements. If a suitable photo is not submitted, we may source an alternative image.”July 2, 2020 at 10:12 am #1203563214
Somebody didn’t get the memo – Marcus Scribner entered in both Comedy Supporting and Comedy Guest for the same character (“Junior” Johnson in black’ish (supporting) and grown-ish (guest)). I thought that wasn’t allowed any more. (BTW, Tracee Ellis Ross did not enter in the voiceover category for mixed-ish.)July 2, 2020 at 9:24 am #1203563048
I’m surprised to see a ballot for voiceover – I thought it was still a “screened entries” categoryJune 30, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203558689
They are the list of entries for each category.
Note that some categories won’t have them, as they don’t use online voting for the nominations. Two that I can think of off the top of my head are voiceovers and choreography.June 30, 2020 at 9:09 am #1203558670
The announced date is Thursday, July 2.
If it’s anything like past years, they’re “supposed to” be released around noon Eastern. What usually happens is, a few people around here run around like chickens with their heads cut off when they can’t find – what? Oh, all right…when we can’t find the link to the ballots, usually under the impression that “the Academy finally got around to limiting access to the voters,” until someone posts it.June 24, 2020 at 5:52 pm #1203550730
8-8:30: The Goldbergs
9-9:30: The Conners
9:30-10: American Housewife
Held for 1Q 2021: $100,000 Pyramid, American Idol, The Bachelor, black-ish, Card Sharks, For Life and mixed-ish
Looks like the last-minute decision to air black’ish in the fall rather than midseason (and move Call Your Mother to midseason) caught somebody at ABC off guard.June 23, 2020 at 10:24 am #1203548058
I thought the “poster girl” for Emmy snubs was Veronica Mars. Wasn’t the whole “semi-final round” the academy tried for a few years in the series and acting categories caused in part by the show’s/Kirsten Bell’s snubs?
Also: Community – the one Emmy it did win (for an animator that worked on the stop-motion Christmas episode) was in a year when it didn’t get any nominations.
(“Okay, Mr. Smart Guy, if it didn’t get any nominations, then how did it win an Emmy?” Individual Achievement in Animation is a juried award, that doesn’t have nominations; each entry gets its own yes-or-no vote for an Emmy.)June 18, 2020 at 10:50 am #1203540808
Does anybody know when the official ballots should come out?
I really want to know the official numbers so that we can put this system into practice predictions wise.
When will the nominations be announced? And will it all happen on the same day?
According to the online calendar, and the dates specified in the current rules:
Ballots come out on July 2
Nominations are announced on July 28, and if they do it as they have done in the past, they are all announced on the same day (and in a single PDF file available from the Emmys website)June 16, 2020 at 6:16 pm #1203537440
Unless he played a character other than Junior on grown-ish, Marcus Scribner can’t enter for both black’ish and grown-ish under the new “one entry per character (unless they’re played by different actors)” ruleJune 5, 2020 at 1:57 pm #1203517978
Yes. This appears to be a new rule.June 5, 2020 at 9:31 am #1203517573
Here’s what’s probably a crazy question:
There is what I assume is a new rule that says that an actor cannot enter for two different series for the same character. I asked the Academy, and whoever responded told me that the rule does include a situation where someone performs as an on-screen character on one show and a voiceover on another.
The question is, does Tracee Ellis Ross enter in Comedy Lead Actress for black’ish, or in Character Voiceover for mixed-ish? I admit that the “obvious” choice is for black’ish, but what are the chances that she actually gets nominated this year – and take into account that one of the reasons the voiceover category exists at all is so it could be a “consolation prize” for The Simpsons not being allowed to enter Comedy Series in its earliest seasons?May 3, 2020 at 1:05 pm #1203460747
Yes, and here’s what could probably be the Fox fall schedule:
Sundays – new episodes of animated shows
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays – whatever reality shows they have ready (they could even delay So You Think You Can Dance? until the fall if necessary, depending on California’s lockdown policy at the time)
Thursdays – NFL (yes, this is happening this fall)
Fridays – WWE Smackdown
Saturdays – College Football (yes, this is also happening this fall, even if it is limited in scope)April 24, 2020 at 9:35 am #1203445462
I thought the finale was, well, underwhelming. Then again, in some ways, that was a good thing; they didn’t go for too many obvious cliches. For example, when they had the four of them on the torch, and Jack found out he was going on that night, I thought for sure that (a) the door would be locked, so they couldn’t get down, and (b) Grace would end up giving birth then and there. I was really surprised that it ended before Grace gave birth (anybody else remember the finale of Perfect Strangers?).
Also, was that supposed to be a Broadway stage? It looked more like something you find in a high school’s little theater.
Still, it came across as if it was written as a season finale, then the producers were told that this was the final season, so the writers made some quick changes to make it more of a proper series finale.
