2022 Suncoast Nominees


CATEGORIES WITHOUT NOMINATIONS

There are questions related to categories that did not receive nominations in this year’s Suncoast Regional Emmy® Awards. In order to foster clear communication and transparency among all members, we want to further explain that process.

This is neither a precedent-setting nor a unique circumstance. Categories with zero nominees occur annually, and over a wide variety of disciplines. For announcement purposes, categories with subcategories are merged. If a subcategory is not listed, it means there was either no entry in that category or no nominations.

Our Call for Entry states, “Entries are judged against a standard of excellence on their own merit and do not compete against each other. There may be one award, more than one award, or no award given in each category.”

All entries in all categories are judged by at least 7 peers in a NATAS region outside of the Suncoast chapter. Peers are defined as people who have three or more years of experience working in the category they are judging. Judges acknowledge their experience via affidavits submitted to NATAS. Entries are judged on their own individual merits; they are not judged in competition with each other. Entries in English are judged by English-speaking judges and entries in Spanish are judged by Spanish-speaking judges.

In order to receive a nomination, an entry must reach a threshold percentage of high scores. Entries with scores below that threshold do not receive a nomination.

In order to receive an Emmy award, entries much reach an even higher threshold. Every year, categories without nominations are reviewed by the Rules Committee to determine that all judges are peers and that their credentials are in order. We also verify that different chapters judge different categories, meaning they aren’t all judged by the same chapter which might imply a bias toward, or dislike of, the Suncoast region.

We encourage questions about the judging process and work diligently to ensure its credibility and authenticity. If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to send an email to the NATAS Suncoast Chapter office, emmysuncoast@gmail.com, to be taken up by the Rules Committee.
