New Emmys Rules Define Television Movie Length

The Television Academy announced new rules for the 2019 Emmys Thursday night, including setting the minimum length for qualifying television movies at 75 minutes.

The rules changes also included the addition of an Outstanding Music Composition for a Documentary Series or Special (Original Dramatic Underscore) award, and restructuring the choreography categories as follows:

  • Outstanding Choreography for Variety and Reality Programming (Variety Series, Variety Special, Structured Reality, Unstructured Reality and Competition Program)
  • Outstanding Choreography for Scripted Programming (Comedy Series, Drama Series, Limited Series and Television Movie)

The new music composition category will recognize “the unique creative process and evaluation criteria for documentary scoring, versus scoring for scripted series or specials.”

The Academy also announced a slew of other changes, which can be viewed below.

Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special: Entries in this category will be recognized in two genres, variety series and variety specials. The number of nominees will be proportional to the number of submissions in each genre, with at least one nomination for each.

Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program: Entries in this category will be recognized in two genres, documentary/nonfiction programs and reality programs. The number of nominees will be proportional to the number of submissions in each genre, with at least one nomination for each.
