Emmys Preserve Live Thank Yous

(Posted August 11, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

On second thought, the Emmy Awards will be totally, completely live, even the potentially long-winded parts.

Organizers of the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards have ditched a plan to ostensibly speed up the telecast by trading live acceptance speeches by winners in several categories for pretaped thank yous.

In a meeting Monday night by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' board of governors, it was decided that the change would not save time. It was further decided that the change would drive up production costs. It was then decided the change would go--and the live speeches would stay.
