Lifetime Responds to TV Academy's Consolidation of Movie/Minseries Performers Categories



via press note:

LIFETIME STATEMENT REGARDING ATAS’ CONSOLIDATION OF MOVIE-MINISERIES PERFORMERS CATEGORIES

 

 

“We are disappointed the Academy has followed suit with its decision last year to merge the movie and miniseries categories by now combining the lead and supporting actress and actor categories. Movies and miniseries represent some of television’s finest programming and it is our firm belief the industry should honor each category separately. The Academy recognizes lead and supporting actresses and actors in other genres — as it should. However, the continued consolidation of the movies and miniseries categories will unnecessarily deny award-worthy films and performances from receiving their proper recognition.”
