Jason Sudeikis disqualified from Emmy consideration

Los Angeles, June 19 (IANS) Hollywood star Jason Sudeikis has been disqualified from consideration for this year’s 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.

When the 2016 Primetime Emmy ballots went online on Monday, Sudeikis was included in the list of guest actors in a comedy series for his critically acclaimed role in “The Last Man On Earth”.

But under Emmy rules, Sudeikis isn’t a guest star.

Since he appeared in eleven of the second season’s 18 episodes as Mike Miller, astronaut brother of the title character Phil Miller (played by Will Forte), he far exceeds the current threshold for guest consideration, reports variety.com.

As per the Television Academy’s rules: “It is the decision of the entrant whether to enter as a lead, supporting or guest performer. However, only performers appearing in less than 50 per cent of the eligible episodes are able to submit in the Guest Performer categories.”

Although Sudeikis would be properly categorised in the supporting actor race, it is too late to make the switch now that voting has commenced, and he will  therefore be disqualified from consideration.

Again, as per Academy’s rules: “If an entry is made in the wrong category and the error is not discovered until it goes to the voters on the nomination ballot, it will be disqualified.”
