« on: June 11, 2019, 11:55:38 AM »
Episode 31.06 - Who Wants a Rolex


Here is the logline included on the Emmy ballots (from here):
Quote
The Amazing Race
Who Wants A Rolex?
May 22, 2019
The Amazing Race makes a first ever trip to Uganda, where a massive market causes confusion and alabor intensive challenge on the shores of Lake Victoria exhausts teams before they battle in a Ugandan themed head-to-head competition ending in elimination.

This is also the first year for the new Outstanding Competition Program category.

Episodes 1-7 were eligible. May 31 is the cutoff.

I can see why they chose it. They always choose a "culture shock"-type of location. And the teams were competitive, especially focusing on the Reillys and Janelle & Britney (Speed Bump, Janelle/RB, Head-to-Head). And it ended on an emotional note as well.

The episode that shone the spotlight on Tyler & Korey. They're probably hoping for a few points off of that.

You have to go to the Emmy ballots: https://www.emmys.com/ballots/2019
And then just look through the categories. The episode is attached to each program that has submitted. Reality shows usually only submit one whereas scripted shows submit several episodes in the various categories.

TAR has submitted itself into these categories this year:
Outstanding Competition Program
Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program (Phil Keoghan)
Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program
Outstanding Cinematography for a Reality Program
Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program (Bertram Van Munster)
Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Program
Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program (Single or Multi-Camera)

Yes, the members still vote for the final list of nominees/winners. But you still have to submit yourself in order to be considered. So it's the show/writer/director/actor's choice which episode they want to represent themselves as their best work.

I wonder if needed, they can submit episodes that aired after May 31 for next year’s Emmy. It’s very odd that a TAR season has overlapping with two consecutive Emmy cycles. I don’t think that’s ever happened before.

Yes, I think as long as you meet the requirement of six aired episodes within the eligibility period, you would be able to submit those episodes for next year.
TAR31 would only have 5 episodes within the 2019-2020 eligibility period (assuming the two hour finale will still be two separate episodes). So TAR32 would need to air at least one episode before May 31, 2020 for the show to be eligible. And so as long as TAR is eligible, even if TAR32 airs in full before May 31, 2020, they could still choose to submit any of Eps 8-12 of TAR31 instead if they liked.

In the past, for example, actors and crew from cancelled series which ended up with summer burnoffs were able to submit their work from those burnoffs in the next year's Emmys.

Ru Paul's Drag Race has a better shot at repeating this year than The Voice. And the Masked Singer has a lot of buzz. So including The Voice, that's three big contenders.

Leg 7 should have been submitted (and Leg 9, which is not eligible this year.)

Having said that, leg 6 is also pretty alright with Tyler and Korey's comments on the Ugandan government and the ending with Rachel and Elissa and Janelle and Britney holding hands together.

I guess it's alright.
I was expecting them to chose leg 7, but after leg 5 of S28 was submitted and failed to be rewarded, I'm glad they didn't. They were both poorly designed legs that looked stunning on camera, but imo the S28 one was... more beautiful?

Really wish leg 9 was up for nomination, but my favorite was leg 3.
I get the reasoning behind picking the leg in Uganda though, but I'm not expecting a win after so many losses lol.
