Okay, so maybe it’s a bit presumptuous to say that Lost is definitely going to win, but there’s something kind of interesting about the timing of this, right?
The Television Academy’s Board last night voted to update submission rules regarding an extended episode’s permitted length, granting 2010 Primetime Emmy® Awards eligibility for ABC’s final episode of Primetime Drama Series, Lost. The upcoming series finale is currently scheduled to run two and a half hours on May 23, 2010. Past rules have limited submission of extended length episodes to twice the normal running time, or two hours for a standard Primetime Drama Series episode.
Of course, just watch: Even though it’s eligible, it’ll probably still lose out to a special episode of Grey’s Anatomy or something.
