Emmys Revoke 2 Nominations for ‘Better Call Saul Employee Training’ Web Series Due to Running Time

The Wrap Friday, 19 July 2019
Emmys Revoke 2 Nominations for ‘Better Call Saul Employee Training’ Web Series Due to Running TimeThe Television Academy has revoked a pair of Emmy nominations for the web series “Better Call Saul Employee Training: Madrigal Electromotive Security” due to its running time.

In a statement released on Friday, the TV Academy said the 10-episode series did not meet the minimum required runtime of two minutes for at least six episodes for the short-form series categories. Both the series itself and “Better Call Saul” star Jonathan Banks have been disqualified.

“This decision is in no way a diminishment of the quality of ‘Better Call Saul Employee Training’ or Mr. Banks’ performance in it,” the organization said.

“Better Call Saul Employee Training,” available on AMC’s website, is a series of mock employee training videos starring Banks’ “Better Call Saul” character, Mike Ehrmantraut, explaining how to keep a facility secure using his own experience as a criminal as expertise. The web series’ first iteration, “Los Pollos Hermanos Employee Training,” starring Giancarlo Esposito, took home the short-form series Emmy in 2017.

In its place this year, Sundance TV’s “State of the Union” has been nominated in the Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category, and “Special” star Ryan O’Connell has been nominated in the Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

Banks was also recognized in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category for the flagship AMC series. That nomination remains unaffected.
