Let the Emmy voting begin…The Television Academy announced on Monday that the first round of online Emmy Awards nomination voting has opened. Although Emmy campaigning has been ongoing for the past few months, Television Academy members are now able to start makig some choices.

Voting will be open for the next two weeks and will narrow down a very broad content selection. As of last year, this first round of Emmy voting can be done online. For an in-depth look at Emmy frontrunners, check out PBS and Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series, which includes conversations between Lady Gaga and Jamie Lee Curtis, Tracee Ellis Ross and Courtney B. Vance, Emilia Clarke and Jay Duplass and Rob Lowe and John Travolta.

Emmy voters will also be able to decide which shows make it into the new short form categories, which include comedy or drama; variety; reality/non-fiction; and animation. The nominees must have a minimum of six episodes, an average length of 15 minutes or less per episode, and be shown on traditional TV or via the Internet. Members will also be able to vote for short-form Actress and Actor. These will be handed out as part of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which will now be presented over two consecutive nights, the weekend prior to the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Don’t miss Variety’s coverage on the 2016 Emmys and the contenders. Voting will conclude on June 27. The Television Academy will announce nominees on July 14.

The 2016 Emmys will air on September 18 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m PT on ABC.
