Academy, Like, Wusses Out: No Pre-taped Emmy Acceptance Speeches After All

Academy officials pre-taping remarks from dozens of nominees proved a difficult and expensive task. Many of TV's top producers and directors hated the idea anyway- big surprise.

The Primetime Emmy Awards telecast airs next month on CBS.
