Emmy Awards Add Music Supervision, Reality Series Casting Categories

Two new categories have been added to the 2017 Emmy Awards race: Music supervision and casting in a reality series.

The decision was made Thursday night during a meeting of the Television Academy’s board of governors.

Among the other changes approved was the split of cinematography for a single-camera series into two sub-categories, for hourlong and half-hour series.

Several award changes were made in the interactive realm:
  • Outstanding Interactive Program (Existing category award)
  • Outstanding Original Interactive Program (New category award)
  • Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within A Scripted Program (New category award)
  • Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within An Unscripted Program (New category award)
  • Outstanding Innovation In Interactive Programming (New juried award)

 

More expansive changes were announced last year, including the addition of several categories recognizing short-form series, as well as the expansion of the Creative Arts Emmys into two awards shows.

A full list of the rules changes will be available at the Emmys website.

This year’s Emmy Awards will be held on Sept. 17 and will be hosted by Stephen Colbert, host of CBS’ “The Late Show.” Nominations will be announced on July 13.
