Ever wondered what it takes to actually win an Emmy? It’s an intricate process with enough twists and turns to fill in a contender for Outstanding Drama Series.
This year, the Television Academy received over 7800 submission in a whopping 113 categories. In comparison, the Oscars only have 24 categories.

Peer groups get to vote on the acting categories and the writing & directing categories. That’s just for starters.
