EMMYS: TV Academy Splits Best Miniseries & TV Movie, Reality Program & Voice-Over Categories, Expands Combined Longform Fields To 6 Nominees, Sets Scenario For 7 Best Drama & Comedy Series Nominees
As expected, the Television Academy’s Board of Governors voted to split the merged best TV movie and miniseries category intemmystatueo two, reverting to the long tradition of separate top longform Primetime Emmy categories, which was ended by the TV Academy vote in 2011 to merge the two fields because of the dwindling number of miniseries entries. Ironically, as the decision was made, miniseries already had started their resurgence.

The TV Academy also voted to split the Outstanding Reality Program Category into Outstanding Structured Reality Program (i.e. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, MYTHBUSTERS, etc.) and Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program (i.e. PAWN STARS, DUCK DYNASTY, etc.) because of “a general industry uptrend in two different types of narrative reality programming.” They will join the Reality Competition Program category.

HOUSE OF CARDS finds avid audience in China
It's little surprise that a show devoted to political machinations would resonate in a country with a long history of back-stabbing leadership purges and inner-party struggle.

But another reason the show may be a success here, some China experts in the United States fear, is because its unflattering portrayal of U.S. politics affirms Chinese government propaganda about American hypocrisy and bullying. In the show, actor Kevin Spacey plays Underwood, a congressional leader who is rejected for a Cabinet appointment, then claws his way to revenge and higher office.
