TELEVISION ACADEMY EXPANDS COMEDY AND DRAMA EMMYS TO EIGHT NOMINATIONS, MAKES OTHER CHANGES

After much conversation about the need during this era of “Peak TV” for the Emmy race to expand the number of nominees in key categories, the Television Academy is doing just that.

After much conversation about the need during this era of “Peak TV” for the Emmy race to expand the number of nominees in key categories, the Television Academy is doing just that. The org announced late Wednesday that it would expand the number of nominations in comedy and drama to eight, regardless of the number of submissions.

That expansion was among several additional rules changes announced for this year’s 72nd Emmy Awards competition, including a restructuring of how nominees are selected in each category.

“To align the nominations selection process across all awards categories and to allow for more inclusiveness in the recognition of excellence,” in other categories the number of nominees per category will now be based on the number of submissions in each category.
