In addition to expanding the number of nominees in their major categories from five to six, this year's Emmy Awards is looking to take a page from the Oscars' playbook and reinvent the whole gosh darn awards-giving wheel. In a statement, the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences stated that "the Television Academy's Board of Governors has discussed a variety of proposals to make this year's Primetime Emmy telecast as entertaining as possible for today's television audience." Reportedly, this will include cutting down the number of awards given on air. Selfishly, we also hope this means continued employment for Hugh Jackman! [Award Central/Variety]
