Hayma Washington, the chairman and CEO of the Television Academy, will also be joining the duo during the livestream.
Washington was appointed to the position of chairman in 2016, and has been vocal about his mission to expand the Emmy format to account for cable, streaming, and the increasingly large influence of Netflix. “At the end of the day, we are the arbitrator of the Emmy, which is the mark of excellence. All those different formats and possibilities to me is what makes it exciting,” he told Variety.
“Sure, they have different interests. They come from different directions. But at the end of the day, I think we’re all interested in making quality content. That’s how I look at it. It’s just more opportunities for us to be exposed to something.”
Washington, also spoke on the topic of diversity and how that factors into the voting process. “Obviously, we hope that television always is a good reflection of the culture that views it. We applaud any inclusion and diversity in the industry,” he explained. “We are always excited when we see the programming that comes into this submission period. We’re happy because it seems to be balanced, and it’s a reflection of the culture.”
