Who’s Winning? A Look at 63 Years of the Emmy Awards by the Numbers

You can size up the Emmy’s by a number of factors from who’s been nominated and who’s won the most by viewing this infographic below. Or take a deeper dive into the annual event that has fascinated TV viewers for more than six decades.

Emmys 2011

Emmys 2011

Read between the lines and consider this…

How many Emmy’s are going to “Cable” and “smaller” audiences? 

Did you know that the Emmy’s consider the content – not the platform. They have said that the greatest growth they’ve seen is with short-form web content and they have a category for it. So when you’re looking to the future and see more series that start online and move to Cable or TV, think about in 3 years when it will all be served up on the same medium and it will be the size of the audience that gets measured accurately.

Look at the size of the audience that Mad Men has… and compare it to traditional audience sizes. Size does not matter – the quality of the story does.

About the Emmy Awards

The Primetime Emmy Awards are awards presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming. First awarded in 1949, they were originally referred to as just the “Emmy Awards” until the first Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies were held in the 1970s, and the word “primetime” was added to disambiguate between the two.

Sing for a Chance to go to the Tony’s! (Now if only I could sing…) #TixToTonys

Loved seeing this contest sponsored by Macy’s for the upcoming 64th Annual Tony Awards. With so many people loving theatre (me) and Glee (okay, me too)… getting the opportunity to put a video up for a chance to win a trip to go to the Tony’s is a dream come true.

So here’s how it works… if you are older than the age of 13 and can upload video content of yourself singing one of the following Broadway tunes (my favorite is ONE from a Chorus Line) then you’re entered to win:

  • “96,000” – In the Heights
  • “Gimme, Gimme” – Thoroughly Modern Millie
  • “Good Morning, Baltimore” – Hairspray
  • “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outa My Hair” – South Pacific
  • “The Lonely Goatherd” – The Sound of Music
  • “Maybe” – Annie
  • “One” – A Chorus Line
  • “Stars” – Les Misérables
  • “Ya Got Trouble” – The Music Man

So go get your voice warmed up and go upload your awesome video to www.CBS.com/Tonys now through May 27 when the fun starts with public voting ending on June 1 at 12:00 AM, ET. Phase II starts on June 3, when the five semi-finalists will be revealed and yes, more voting. The five finalists will also be flown to New York City to participate in a live sing-off in Macy’s Herald Square on Friday, June 11 – where a panel of Broadway stars and experts, along with the online votes, will choose two finalists who will win the opportunity to walk the red carpet at THE 64TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 13. The two finalists will also be decked out for the red carpet with a $1,000.00 gift card from Macy’s.

Finalists will be featured on The 64th Annual Tony Awards, Sunday, June 13  on CBS!!
