Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon Among Juried Emmy Award Winners

The Television Academy has announced the winners for this year’s juried awards, which are determined by a panel of professionals in each respective peer group.

Deliberations include an open discussion of each entrant’s work and, at the end, voters are asked to answer the question “Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award – yea or nay?” Only those with unanimous approval win. Because of this judging process, the category could have no winners.

It can also have multiple winners, as was the case for Original Interactive Program category, which granted Emmy Awards to Pemberley Digital and Kin Community’s “Emma Approved” and “AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience,” which was executive produced by Taylor Swift with American Express and RadicalMedia.

Late-night dominated the Social TV Experience category, with awards going to the Comedy Central series “@midnight with Chris Hardwick” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The full list of awards is below. These awards and others will be handed out Saturday at the 2015 Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
