Juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer group, with the possibility of one, more than one, or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence there are no nominees, but rather a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include open discussions of each entrant's work, with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. At the conclusion of each deliberation, the jury considers the question, "Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award - yea or nay?" Only those with unanimous approval win.
The 2016 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, executive produced by Bob Bain,will be held over two nights at the Microsoft Theater from 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM on both Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11. FXX will broadcast the awards on Saturday, September 17, from 8:00 - 10:30 PM (ET/PT) with an encore from 10:30 PM - 1:00 AM (ET/PT).
