The Television Academy has recently announced that from now on, Oscar-nominated projects will no longer be eligible to compete for Emmy Awards. This rule will be applicable from the beginning of 2021. This rule was released just days after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released a new statement saying that some films from streaming sites will be eligible for the 2021 Oscar Awards.

The makers want to make sure that the new rules will be followed for the selection process of the Emmy Awards which is going to take place on February 28, 2021. This rule was introduced as it is common to see the overlap of accolades for non-fiction projects, such as documentaries. Read more to know about the new rules set by the board of the Emmy Awards.

The TV Academy noted these changes, which followed AMPAS' coronavirus-inspired move that allows films to compete without theatrical distribution. They released a statement, "The Television Academy supports the recent decision from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to allow feature films, originally intended for theatrical distribution but made available via streaming or video on demand during the current pandemic crisis, to compete at the 2021 Oscars”. They also stated that, "Further, the Television Academy ruled in March that effective in 2021, programs that have been nominated for an Oscar will no longer be eligible for the Emmys competition".
