Extended Lost Finale Now Eligible to Win an Emmy

By

Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse now have a little extra incentive not to disappoint everybody this weekend. According to a press release, the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences Board of Governors voted last night to approve a rule change making Sunday's two-and-a-half-hour Lost finale technically eligible to win an Emmy Award (previously, drama series episodes longer than two hours were disqualified). Smoke monsters are still barred from competing in acting categories, though.
