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.

“The Walking Dead” Walks Away with 6 Saturn Award Nominations

Why did we pick this as the lead into the post? Well, for one, we’re big sci-fi geeks here at Mingle Media TV and two we loved AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series! Congratulations to Frank Darabont for receiving 6 nominations! We got to speak with Michael Rooker, who was one of the characters (living) that you loved to hate this week at the Italia Film Festival at Grauman’s Theatre. Here’s a little about what he had to say:

So if you’re not familiar with The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films – well, you’re in for a treat as this is their 37th Annual Saturn Awards nomination announcement and leading the charge is Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending sci-fi thriller “Inception” with 9 nominations. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow at the Oscar’s as Inception is also nominated for Best Picture.

Warner Bros. Pictures leads the pack with 23 nominations from 6 films, including “Clash of the Titans,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” “Hereafter,” “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,” “Splice,” and “Inception.”


Also with strong showings were Paramount (lead by “Shutter Island,” and “Iron Man 2”) and Walt Disney Studios (lead by “Tron: Legacy,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3”) with 16 and 14 nominations, respectively.
Fox Searchlight and Universal earned 10 nominations apiece, followed by Overture/Relativity Media (7),  20th Century Fox (6), Summit Entertainment (5), DreamWorks Animation and Marvel Films (each with 4), while Lionsgate, Magnolia Pictures and Sony Pictures scored 3 nominations each.
Of Special note, is Kino Lorber’s release of Fritz Lang’s ground-breaking 84-year-old classic, The Complete Metropolis” which was nominated for Best International Film and Best Music.
