Emmy folks name names

ATAS lists award-eligible producers

It's an Emmy nomination day in August for the producers of the programs in a number of key categories at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards.

More than a month after the Emmy nominations were an-nounced, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences released the list of producers ruled eligible in 14 categories, including comedy and drama series; miniseries; made for TV movie; variety, music or comedy series; variety, music or comedy special; special class program; reality-competition program; and reality program.

When announced July 19, the nominees in those categories were listed as TBD — to be determined.

There are no surprises on the list, which includes all the key people on the nominated programs.

Of all scripted shows, ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and Fox's "House" have the most producers (13) nominated for best drama series. The academy imposed a five-entrant cap in the top drama category this year, but the two shows' numbers were grandfathered in from last year, when they also were nominated.

CBS' reality show "The Amazing Race" had the most nominated producers overall with 24. The reigning Emmy champ also received a waiver as the new cap in the category is 16.

Robert Duvall became a double nominee with a producer nom in the miniseries category for AMC's "Broken Trail." He already is nominated in the lead actor in a miniseries or movie category.

For the past two years, the academy has been implementing a vetting process to determine the nominees in categories that honor a program rather than an individual achievement.

In addition to submissions by producers applying for credit, the procedure this year included third-party forms for each candidate filled out by those involved in the production of the respective programs who evaluated the candidates' involvement and contributions.

Those forms, multiple for each applicant, were anonymous to keep the information as objective as possible, sources said.

A partial list of the newly announced Emmy nominees follows. The complete list is available at hollywoodreporter.com.
