NEWS: Emmy Changes, Michael Buble, GAMES OF THRONES

Fewer soaps, fewer awards?
At the very least, the Natl. Academy of Television Arts & Sciences could explore having fewer candidates in some of the soap categories say Michael Maloney in a new article for Variety. While five has been the standard number of noms in each acting category, some feel that number should be lower because the genre has dropped three serials in recent years.

"They do need to change," says Peter Bergman, a three-time Daytime Emmy lead actor winner for his role on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS as Jack Abbott. "You can't have five (nominees) with only six shows. If you do, you may as well throw one from every show in."

"I don't think there should be younger actor or actress categories," says Christian Jules LeBlanc.
