Emmy Changes: Some Awards to be Taped

Emmy organizers say they will tape the presentation of some awards to help make the ceremony more appealing to viewers.

The Television Academy said Thursday the move is intended to create the most entertaining show possible.

The academy board approved the changes Wednesday night, providing for some awards to be given out before the broadcast. Edited clips of the winners accepting their trophies will be shown during the ceremony, which will air Sept. 20 on CBS.

The Emmys have faced slumping ratings, with last year’s ceremony attracting a low of 12.3 million viewers.
