“It is our hope that this adjustment to the television series categories will help reflect the vast landscape of outstanding offerings on the small screen.  Separating the comedy and drama categories will allow for a more expansive and varied selection of nominees, and increasing the number of nominees in each category will highlight even more editors’ indelible contributions to the television medium.ACE Board of Directors, 2017

Recognizing that some television series may consider themselves both a comedy and a drama, networks and studios are asked to submit in only one category.  The ACE Blue Ribbon Committee that presides over television entries reserves the right to change a submission category as it sees fit. Special, self-contained episodes that are not part of the series narrative, such as Holiday specials, should be submitted in the TV Movie/Miniseries category.
