Emmy Awards Expand Short Form Categories

Earlier this month the Emmy Awards announced a number of important changes and additions to the award categories. The announcement is a significant step in the right direction for validation of independent web content creators and their work.

- New category: Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Series - Comedy or Drama
New category: Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Series - Comedy or Drama
- New category: Outstanding Short Form Series - Variety
- Renamed category: Short Format Live Entertainment becomes Outstanding Short Form Series - Comedy or Drama
Renamed category: Short Format Nonfiction becomes Outstanding Short Form Series - Reality/Nonfiction

The Television Academy defines Short Form as those projects with at least six episodes, that are a length of 15 minutes or less, which is excellent news for our members and creators.
