The Emmys... televisions mark of excellence. First presented in January of 1949 by the newly formed Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Emmys didn't truly pick up much of a following until 1955 when the show enjoyed its first nationally televised program. Ceremonies continued peacefully through 1976 until the Hollywood and New York chapters of the Academy began to argue about who had the right to award Emmys. Eventually, when the dust settled, the television viewing audience was to be served Emmys for prime-time entertainment programs by the Hollywood-based Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and daytime, sports and local shows by the New York-based National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Make sense? Good. Let's move on...
