11 New Emmy Categories We’d Like to See Added to the Awards

Television’s biggest night, the Primetime Emmy Awards, is coming on Sunday, Sept. 22. While we love the tense anticipation, daring red-carpet fashion, and heartfelt acceptance speeches of this awards show as much as any other TV fan, we have to admit that the award categories feel a little outdated and dull. That’s why we’ve brainstormed 11 new Emmy Awards categories that we’d like to see in 2019. These categories honor the enticing, outrageous, and sometimes sinister aspects of TV that keep us coming back for more binge-watching. Here’s hoping the Academy can take a hint.
