Mr.Peabody

I would have thought that winning awards for actual writing would be more important.I'm just curious as I come from it more from a film perspective where 'producer' really isn't a creative role and is much more akin to your executives than writers. Is there an Emmy for executives? What separates the producers from the writers in television?

Non-writing Producers... the kind that are completely NON-CREATIVE and are only there because they are former agents or network/studio execs that managed to attach themselves to someone else's creative endeavors make me sick to my stomach. I've worked with a bunch of these so-called "producers"... and I think it speaks volumes about their creative integrity that they would even allow themselves to be listed as an Emmy nominee... it's very easy to de-list yourself... only scum could stand there with an award that they didn't earn, while legitimate writers are left off the list because these parasites have more power. Pure scum.npcuq

I'd like to see an award for "notes."
