Emmy Voting Now Open
Primary season may be coming to a half, but peak TV means tough choices are still ahead for Academy members.
It may seem like Emmy campaigning has been going on for months — well, that's because it has — but voting is only now just getting underway.
The Television Academy on Monday morning formally announced the first round of Emmy voting. Nomination voting, which will narrow down a very, very wide field of eligible series for the 2016 Emmys, will last for the coming two weeks. (Voting wraps on June 27 at 10 p.m.)
Like last year, voting now takes place online. Academy members can cast ballots at vote.TelevisionAcademy.com.
For an in-depth look at the early frontrunners in this year's race, be sure to check out The Hollywood Reporter's roundtable series. Conversations between drama actors, drama actresses, comedy actors, drama and comedy showrunners and reality powerhouses have already run — with comedy actresses still on the way as Emmy campaigning continues.
After the first round of voting wraps, the TV Academy will announce nominations live on Thursday, July 14, from the newly remodeled North Hollywood headquarters. The 2016 Emmys will air live on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
