Going for an Emmy isn’t as simple as filling out a form.  You also have to open up the wallet — particularly if you’re not a member of the TV Academy.

Here, from the Academy rulebook, is what it costs to pursue the honor of just being nominated.

1. Commercial entry fees:
There is a flat $250 fee for all commercial entries.

2. Individual achievement entry fees:
The fee for individual entries is $200.
For small teams (2-4 entrants), the fee is $400.
For medium teams (5-8 entrants), the fee is $500.
For large teams (9-10 entrants), the fee is $600.
Teams of 11 or more pay a flat fee of $60 per person.

3. Program entry fees:
The fee for a program entry with a single producer is $400.
For small teams (2-4 entrants), the fee is $600.
For medium teams (5-8 entrants), the fee is $700.
For large teams (9 or more entrants), the fee is $800.

4. Interactive Media Programming fees:
For an individual(s) submitting as the Official Entrant the fee is $400.
For a company(s) submitting as the Official Entrant the fee is $600.

However, Academy members have certain fees waived. Kind of like being in a PPO.

But wait, there’s more.  What if you get nominated and you want to bring someone to the ceremony with you?

PLEASE NOTE: If a non-member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is announced as a nominee on July 19, he/she will receive one complimentary nominee ticket to the awards presentation and ball (members receive two complimentary tickets). Creative Arts non-member
nominees may purchase one guest ticket to the presentation and ball for $250, Telecast non-member nominees may purchase one guest ticket to the presentation and ball for $500, or non-member nominees may choose to join the Television Academy (membership fee $185) to receive a guest ticket at no extra charge. Non-members may also join prior to April 27 and have their percentage of the entry fee waived.
