TV TV Academy Rules "Better Call Saul" Short w/ Jonathan Banks is Ineligible

Television Academy Rules Emmy-Nominated "Better Call Saul" Short Form Series Ineligible After All

Better Call Saul Employee Training: Madrigal Electromotive Security, which received an Emmy nomination Tuesday in the outstanding short form comedy or drama series category, has been ruled ineligible by the Television Academy.

The Academy has determined the series does not meet the minimum required runtime of two minutes for at least six episodes. “Consequently, both the short form program and Jonathan Banks’ performance in the short form program are not eligible to compete in their respective categories,” the Academy said in a statement.

As a result, the submission with the next highest number of votes in the category — State of the Union from Sundance TV — now becomes a nominee in the category.
