ⓘ 67th Primetime Emmy Awards

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2014 until May 31, 2015, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The ceremony was held on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and was broadcast in the U.S. by Fox. Andy Samberg hosted the show for the first time. The nominations were announced on July 16, 2015.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony was held on September 12 and was broadcast by FXX on September 19.

The Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards ceremony was held on October 28, 2015 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel.

The ceremony became notable for breaking two major milestones: Game of Thrones set a new record by winning 12 awards, the most for any show in a single year, up to this date.

                                     

1. Rule changes

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced new rule changes for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. These new rules are:

  • The Outstanding Variety Series category has been split into two separate categories: "Outstanding Variety Talk" and "Outstanding Variety Sketch".
  • The Outstanding Miniseries was renamed as "Outstanding Limited Series". A "Limited Series" is defined as a program consisting of two or more episodes totaling 150 minutes as a whole, tell a complete, non-recurring story, and do not have an ongoing storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons.
  • The number of nominees in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Comedy Series categories will expand from six nominees to seven, due to the increase in series production.
  • All voters eligible for a categorys nominations are now eligible to vote in that category, providing that they have seen the submitted material and attest to no specific conflicts of interest.
  • To clarify the difference between a Comedy series and a Drama series, any show where episodes average a length of 30 minutes is eligible to enter as a comedy and series with episodes that average a length of 1 hour is eligible as a drama. There may be exceptions to the rules, however: producers may formally petition to a new Academy panel to have the show be considered for the alternative category. This panel, consisting of five industry leaders appointed by the Academy Chairman and four appointees from the Board of Governors, will vote on a decision. A two-thirds vote was required for the show to be considered for the alternative category. So far, three petitions have been successful: Glee, Jane the Virgin, and Shameless were voted as eligible for "Outstanding Comedy Series".
  • A "Guest Actor" is now defined as a performer appearing in less than 50% of the programs episodes. Only performers that fit this criteria are allowed to submit.
