“Emmy Awards” night is nearing and the public is buzzing! Who will be new nominees and why should we watch it? Read more about it below.
Most fans are tired of waiting for their favorite actors and actresses to be nominated to this awards show but every now and then failing to be part of it. Many got disappointed because they nominate the same shows, actors and actresses over and over again. But many say that the upcoming “Emmy Awards” will be different this time around and these are the reasons:
One, there are new shows that will be for the very first time be nominated in Emmy; Amazon’s “Transparent,” Fox’s “Empire,” and CW’s “Jane the Virgin.” There will also be new acclaimed actors that were nominated.
Second, Emmy constructed new rules and regulations to avoid confusions and frustrations. As long as we remember, there were circumstances that the awards show was put in the question booth when actress Uzo Aduba won “Guest Actress” while she’s been in the “Orange Is The New Black” show nearly every episode. In order to make things right, the awards show see a rule that an actor/actress will be considered as guest if they appeared in a show for half of a season. Another rule is half-hour shows are automatically considered as comedies, while an hour-long show will be in the drama category. Wait, but what about an-hour long comedy shows? Is it considered as drama?—what?!
Third one is, there will be more choices for best series! Emmy decided to include seven options in the Best Drama and Best Comedy categories. Well, surely there might be a possibilities for “Game of Thrones”, “Veep,”, and “Modern Family” to be in the list.
And lastly, the predictions of the nominees…
