Jalal takes a look at the recently released Emmy nominating ballots and determines their potential impact on the Emmy nominees.
Every year on the day voting for Emmy nominees begins, the Television Academy makes PDF versions of the Emmy nominating ballots available on their official website. These Emmy nominating ballots show the final decisions of who will be submitted in what category, who was snubbed by their own network/show runner for a nomination, what episodes were submitted for consideration in certain categories, and what surprises might pop up on nominations morning. Looking through the nominating ballots is the perfect tool for anyone wanting to predict the Emmys since you’ll be looking through the same documents and be able to put yourself in the mind of the voter.
Jalal Haddad lists out the major surprises in the Emmy nominating ballots over at AwardsDaily TV. Take a look at some of the Emmy insanity.
