Days before the official release, nominees of Primetime Emmy Awards are posted online but to no confirmation from Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Of what could be ruled as a violation to awards event rule, an early nomination list of Primetime Emmy Awards has found its way on the Internet. TheEnvelope.com suddenly posted 2 categories of TV series potentially to triumph in the event.
Under drama category, among the top 10 finalists are “24”, “Grey Anatomy”, “Lost” and “The Sopranos”. Meanwhile in comedy genre, predicted “The Office”, “Desperate Housewife” and “Ugly Betty” have to compete with unexpected Showtime series “Weed”.
When asked on its accuracy, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences refused to confirm and went on saying that the official will be out on July 19. A statement was read: "The Primetime Emmy nomination process should not be compromised by premature disclosure of nominations information prior to the announcement of the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards nominees on July 19."
