The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on Wednesday defended the
Emmy nomination of Ellen Burstyn for best supporting actress in a
miniseries or movie even though she appeared on-screen for 11 seconds.
Academy spokeswoman Pam Golum told the Associated Press: "Based on the
popular vote, this is a legitimate nomination." The nomination,
however, raised questions about whether Academy members actually watch
the performers they are nominating, and Golum indicated that the
Academy would be willing to consider a new rule requiring actors to
appear on screen for some minimum length of time in order to qualify
for a nomination. Burstyn's brief appearance came in the HBO film Mrs.
Yes, you can do such good acting with 11 seconds on screen time.And
this from the people who won't put Battlestar galactica up for any
major awards because sci fi is "too far fetched."
