See Daytime Emmy Awards.

Regional Emmys

There are twenty regional divisions of the National Academy which hand out their own awards, with the ATA&S serving the Los Angeles, California area). These awards are less glamourous and sometimes technical: a 2003 Suncoast Emmy Award, given for productions in Florida and parts of Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, was awarded for spot coverage of a dump truck chase.

International Emmys

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences hands out awards which honor the best of non-US television.

Identifying these recipients can take months, with judging taking place at various international TV festivals. The best two programs from a particular genre in four regions are selected to go to a semifinal round, from which the nominees are derived. Every nominee is screened at a festival in New York the day before the awards ceremony.

History

The first Emmy Awards were presented on January 25, 1949 at the Hollywood Athletic Club. The name "Emmy" was a feminization of "immy", a nickname used for the image orthicon tubes that were common in early television cameras. Shirley Dinsdale has the distinction of receiving the very first Emmy in the first awards ceremony.
