2017 Emmys: Category Placements for this year’s Emmy Contenders

69-emmys-generic-key-900x600

Before the official submission lists come out in June, the networks put forth where they’re going to push a specific show and, more importantly, their performers. With the new 50% rule in place for guest performers it takes the guessing game out of that a bit but, as you’ll see in HBO’s Big Little Lies listing, there is still room for movement between Lead and Supporting depending on where a network (or a performer’s team) thinks someone will benefit the most. For example, Vera Farmiga, who earned a Lead Actress in a Drama Series nomination for the first season of A&E’s Bates Motel is submitted in Supporting this year, due to a, let’s say reduced role. Conversely, Noah Galvin was submitted in Supporting for the freshman season of ABC’s The Real O’Neals (despite being the main character) but this year is being pushed Lead.

Right now we have A&E, ABC, Amazon, HBO and TV Land with their official lists in and more to come as soon as they’re announced as networks and publicists may add names before the Emmy paperwork deadline arrives. Check back here as we update as soon as those come in.

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.
