Emmy Awards Order No Campaigning Events, Still Plan for September 20th Airdate with A Few Changes to Eligibility and Voting

Share

The Emmy Awards will not be stopped. They are still on track for September 20th barring any more unusual events.

However: there will be no campaigning events. So forget buffets and Q&As for your favorite shows during the voting period. I’m actually curious to see how the networks get around this. The Television Academy won’t even allow virtual get togethers. No events. Period.

Let me tell you, the Emmys may be the first group gathering in six months. The Hotels and restaurants in Los Angeles will be back. It should be quite a comeback.

Sooooo….here are the changes in eligibility:

Modification of Hanging Episode Rule (Series and Limited Series)
Due to production and programming delays, the Academy has extended the eligibility date for “hanging episodes” to June 30 (formerly May 31).
Series eligibility: To qualify for eligibility in the current eligibility year, the series must have premiered by the end of the eligibility year (May 31, 2020). If the series has one or more episodes that fall into the subsequent eligibility year, those episodes must be broadcast or posted on an accessible platform by June 30 to gain eligibility for the current eligibility year. A minimum of six eligible episodes is still required to qualify for series eligibility.
Limited Series eligibility: To qualify for eligibility in the current eligibility year, the limited series must have premiered by the end of the eligibility year (May 31, 2020). If the limited series has one or more episodes/parts that fall into the subsequent eligibility year, those episodes must be broadcast or posted on an accessible platform by June 30 to gain eligibility for the current eligibility year, provided the complete limited series is made available by the June 30 deadline. If those episodes/parts are not able to be broadcast/posted by June 30, then the complete limited series, along with the individual achievements, will be eligible in the subsequent eligibility year.
