2016 Emmys: How an Emmy is Won in One Nifty Infographic

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. All of the academy’s 20,000+ voters get to vote in the top 18 categories that include Drama Series, Comedy Series and Limited Series. Peer groups get to vote on the acting categories and the writing & directing categories. That’s just for starters.

Here is a really fantastic infographic from the Television Academy designed by Critical Mass on the process.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association), the International Press Academy and is the founder/editor of AwardsWatch.
