Emmy Awards 2021 Winners

There are a variety of Emmy events conducted every year set by the calendar. They award national television shows as well as regionally and locally produced programs. And every event organizes and scrutinizes its voting and nominating procedures and make their own rules concerning voting committees and also choose their own categories of awards. So it is pretty common to have the same category names in different Emmy events. But a show cannot be nominated for more than one Emmy event at one time. For instance, syndicated shows have varying air times in different regions and therefore are eligible to enter both the Daytime Emmys and Primetime Emmys, but can be entered only in one of the two at a time.

Generally speaking, when a show reaches more than half of the U.S. households, it is regarded as a national show. While the TV programs that do not accomplish this percentage come under regional shows and so are entered into the Regional Emmys. Streaming television shows are treated similar to syndicated shows, that is, they have to be available to more than half of the US population for downloading as well as streaming to be considered eligible for national Emmy events. Plus they can be nominated in only one of those national Emmy awards. Earlier, there used to be only one Emmy award function conducted annually to award and appreciate national Tv shows in the U.S.

Emmy Awards Winners List

This changed in the year 1974 when the very first Daytime Emmy ceremony was held to honor as well as appreciate national daytime programs exclusively. Soon, other area-oriented Emmy events emerged. The International Emmy Awards that claims to appreciate and award television programs outside of the U.S. was also established in the early 1970s. You can find all the Emmy events that emerged during and before this period, area-specific or otherwise, including the Primetime Emmy Awards; in the ATAS’s official records for anyone to have a look.
