Subject: I read something today, concerning the Emmy Awards.

I am currently reading Cybill Shepherd's book, printed in 2000. She said: "What the public doesn't generally know is that actors have to put forth their own names to be nominated for an Emmy. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences sends out a big book with all the names that have been submitted, and then the entire acting membership votes for five people in each category. Those nominees each choose an episode that represents their best work from the previous season, and a "blue-ribbon" panel of industry volunteers watches the videotapes in a hotel suite before voting."

....I wasn't aware that actors had to submit themselves for the award. I always thought there was some kind of committee or something that decided who was to be voted on. I thought the same thing about entire shows themselves being voted on.

So, I wonder how many times the DCS & WL cast have submitted themselves for an Emmy ? Wayne & Ryan were in the competition this year, I wonder after how many tries !?

Was anyone else here on this MB aware of this?
