2019 Emmy Awards Odds Limited Series/TV Movie

by James Murphy in Entertainment  / July 19, 2019

  • The 71st Emmy Awards ceremony will be held on September 22, 2019 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
  • Hosts for the 2019 Emmy Awards have not been announced.
  • The 2019 Emmy Awards will air live on Fox TV.

Once you get past the ‘Drama’ and ‘Comedy’ categories the systemic changes in the landscape of TV broadcasting become readily apparent. At one point, the ‘TV Movie’ category was extremely competitive. Today, it’s of limited relevance. Ditto such quaint anachronisms as ‘Variety Shows’. ‘Limited Series’ are still very much a part of the post digital revolution broadcast industry but there’s one problem–no one can really figure out where to put the line between a ‘limited series’ and a full on drama or comedy series. Such was the case this year with several shows that had previously been in the ‘Limited Series’ category but have now taken up residence in the ‘Drama’ and ‘Comedy’ categories. If you want to get into the semantics of what is what you can check out the 2019 Emmy Awards Rules and Procedures on the awards’ official website:
