Nominations for the 2020 Emmy Awards will be announced Tuesday July 28, 2020 morning at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. PT, and ABC News will livestream it right here.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festivities will be virtual; it has not yet been announced whether the Emmy Awards will be, too.

The 72nd Emmy Awards will broadcast Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT live on ABC.

Please see IMDb's official Emmy Awards section to see the nominees under each category

Format of the Polls
Title: Emmys 2020 — [Name of the Category]
Description: Which of the nominees of [link=tt11640058] for [Name of the Category] do you think should win?

Please initially limit your poll suggestions to one major category and one minor category to allow other poll authors the chance to suggest Emmy 2020 related polls. If someone has not created a poll for a category after one week after the announcement, that category is open to everyone.

Award polls, such as the Emmy 2020 polls, are a good opportunity for new authors to learn how to create, suggest and mature polls. When a new author suggests the same poll as an established poll author, we will give consideration to the new author and ask the established author to defer to the new author. We will also list both poll pending poll suggestions as appropriate.

Please do not make lists and discussion threads until the nominations are announced? It needlessly clutters the board, making our jobs as admin a bit harder.

Suggested Format
unified discussion hyperlink and master poll list hyperlink
(placed on bottom of poll list)

Dan,

I don't think the author noticed my comment before creating his poll-list.

And seeing how he has fewer polls and votes than me, I let that category go.

I've re-made the poll for another category, one major and one minor.

1. Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Poll Suggestion: Emmys 2020 — Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls087540570/

2. Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls087510898/

Also, If someone does not create a poll for a category after one week, I can do it.

=====

Btw, I'm creating one more poll:

3. Emmys 2020 — Most Nominated Series

(I hope no one else is doing this)

Thanks

I appreciate your optimist, but making polls by correspondence fits in my definition of complicated.

Especially, since we don't seem to know if the suspension of Ed is gonna be revoked (or when), I don't affirm to know what is the best solution, all I know is that doing polls by correspondence is probably not optimal on the long-run, for Ed and the board.

Cinephile, 

If two Champions, one of whom is a Poll Admin, are okay with it, why are you bi--hing?

It's not as if you are being made to do any extra work.

It is not a matter of how much work it takes, it is a matter that communication is unarguably harder.

cinephile,

I understand (and to a limited extent) share your concerns. That is why I wrote: "We are in uncharted territory regarding Ed's suspension."

Oswald,

I am OK with this so long as this does not become complicated. A mitigating factor is that Ed still gets notifications. We shall see whether this actually works.

Ignoring "DARK" (Netflix) for each and every category is the worst decision the members of the Emmys have ever made.

Dan,

Remove me name from:
- Outstanding Drama Series
- Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Correction to be made to ^this^ message:
- "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series" is listed twice.
- "Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series" is not listed.

But that's alright, they're correctly mentioned in the main post. Please only remove my name from the categories I requested.

Thank you.

Dan,

I think you mistakenly placed Peter's (pbn) "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series" poll under "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie."

Both are different categories.
