The Television Academy has made significant changes to its Emmy nomination rules, particularly impacting the scripted variety category. As per the new Rules and Procedures document updated on May 22, the nomination threshold has been lowered from 90% to 70%. Additionally, the number of potential nominees is now capped at two. In contrast, previously, categories with less than 20 submissions required contenders to be screened by a peer group and needed at least a 90% approval rate.
