Big changes at Emmys might please TV fans

Emmy AwardEvery single year, when we hear the announcement of the Emmy nominations, we all say "why wasn't so and so nominated?" and "how can that guy be nominated again?" But this year it might be different.

Instead of getting five nominees from 4500 entries via a two step process, they'll now be another step added. The list is whittled down to 10 or 15 nominees, and then a special committee watches an episode of the series and rates the episode. Then the final five nominees are taken from that list.

I'm not sure if this is an ultimate solution, but it could mean that the more nominees you have, the more cult shows could get in there (like Veronica Mars) and science fiction shows (Battlestar Galactica). Not to mention all the stars that should have been nominated in previous years but were always overlooked. Should be interesting.

The Emmys will air in late August, right before the new fall season starts.
