The Emmys Are Getting Two New Categories This Year

By

No, the Emmys aren’t getting a reboot, but you can expect to see some changes when the 2017 ceremony arrives this fall. The Television Academy has announced that two new categories encompassing achievements in music and casting will be added to the overall awards list this year — Outstanding Music Supervision will acknowledge “the creative contributions made by the music supervisor to the music of any television program,” while Outstanding Casting in a Reality Series category will recognize “casting directors responsible for identifying and assembling ensemble casts for structured, unstructured or competition programs within the reality genre.” Additionally, there’s going to be a tweak to the Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series honors, as it will now be split to recognize cinematography for both a one-hour series and a half-hour series. You can thank Peak TV for that.
