ABSTRACT
This article discusses issues related to the Emmy Awards. The author says that there's a hot and heavy love affair going on these days between the cable industry and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Arts & Sciences. A band of 18 cable networks romanced their way past the broadcast networks with an unprecedented 220 primetime Emmy nominations, versus the broadcasters' tally of 206, winning a total of 50 Emmys. And broadcasters saw little relevance in loosening their stranglehold on the awards for what they believed to be an under-funded enterprise servicing broadcast reruns, according to retired Viacom Inc. chairman Ralph M. Baruch.
