Top 10 Drama and Comedy Finalists Announced

The lists below represent the 60th Primetime Emmy® Awards’ top ten vote-getters for outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series, as voted on by the entire Television Academy.

Step two in the process will be the Blue Ribbon Panel screenings, which will be conducted throughout this weekend of June 28-29.


The results of those panels, who will watch and judge the work of each finalist, represent 50 percent of the vote. Both results will be averaged together to come up with our five nominees in each category.

Those nominees will be announced by the Television Academy at 5:40 a.m. on Thursday, July 17.

Panel participants have been confirmed and the panels are currently closed.

The accounting firm of Ernst & Young oversees tabulation of Primetime Emmy® nominations.
