Juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer group with the possibility of one, more than one, or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence, there are no nominees but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include open discussions of each entrant’s work with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. Only those with unanimous approval win.

The 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, executive produced by Bob Bain, will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles beginning at 5:00 PM PT on Saturday evening and at 4:00 PM PT on Sunday evening. FXX will broadcast the awards on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
