There’s just over a month left in the 2016 Emmy Awards season.
When the Emmy eligibility window closes on May 31, 2016, the Television Academy provides Emmy voters only two weeks to watch anything they’ve missed and cast their votes. The official voting window opens June 13 and closes June 27 (at 10PM PT, if you’re counting). So, unless you’re Tina Fey, chances are many members of the Television Academy still have to catch up to a percentage of the some 1,400 television shows that currently populate the television landscape.
To help them out and to prepare Emmy watchers for the upcoming contests, AwardsDaily TV is again broadening our Emmy coverage beyond prognostication. Here’s a few of the current and upcoming features you can expect for our growing Emmy analysis:
- You’ll notice the debut of our Emmy Tracker, available on the right-hand side of our main page. Here, we’re making some predictions as to who leads currently in the major categories. We’ve listed ten slots of possibilities in each category. As a reminder, the Drama and Comedy Series categories feature seven nominees, the Limited Series / TV movie categories usually feature five nominees, and the acting categories feature six nominees (unless you’re the 2015 Comedy Supporting Actress Category – then you can have eight). Are we missing something? Do you disagree? Sound off in the comments section!
- We’ve been running our Emmy Spotlight series for a few weeks now. You’ll start to see a significant uptick in our awards analysis pieces as series wrap up their seasons or as we revisit series from the fall and winter. These pieces are designed to dive into the Guaranteed, Probable, and Possible nominations a series could receive. Don’t see your favorite series? Let us know, and we’ll take a look at our crystal water cooler.
- As with last year, we’ll also be publishing Emmy advocacy pieces for our favorite shows or actors. This series is the most fun for our eager staff of experts. We love a lot of things about television, but we love nothing more than to spread the joy and (hopefully) inform the Television Academy of our passions. This is your chance to help spread the love. If we advocate for one of your favorites, then help us spread the love on Facebook, on Twitter, or wherever else you hang your Internet hat. Want to advocate something on your own? Submit a piece of your own, and you might see it on AwardsDaily TV!
We’ll also be diving into individual categories on the Water Cooler Podcast over the next few months. So, stick around, visit frequently, download the podcast (on iTunes or your favorite podcast provider!), and let us know what you think should lead the 2016 Emmy nominations.
Nominations are announced on July 14, 2016!
