"For Your Consideration": Emmy Clips Online

"For Your Consideration": Emmy Clips Online

The Emmy Award nominations won't be announced until July, but thanks to a few cool online portals, we non-Academy members can check out the shows that have been submitted for consideration.

CBS Paramount Television, the studio that produces shows including the "CSI" franchise, "The Amazing Race" and "America's Next Top Model," is leading the online charge by putting all of its "for your consideration" clips on a special Web site. Instead of sending out DVD screeners to potential voters, CBS Paramount decided to be more environmentally friendly this time around and not burn a zillion DVDs that would probably end up in the trash. As a result, episodes of "Jericho," all three "CSI" shows, "Medium" and many more are online for free for our perusal.

The two big Hollywood trade papers, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, also have Emmy sites of their own, so to learn about what you can watch there,

The Reporter's Emmys portal has clips from NBC Universal ("Friday Night Lights", "House"), Sony ("Rescue Me," "The Shield," "'Til Death"), A&E ("Intervention") and The History Channel. Variety's Emmy showcase isn't nearly as exciting or comprehensive as the Reporter's, but it has clips from shows including "The Unit" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

What I love about this for non-Emmy voters is that it gives us a chance to see some of the best episodes and scenes of shows we might not be familiar with. I'm more inclined to finally check out, say, "The Unit" when I know I'm watching some of the show's strongest work. Here's hoping other studios follow CBS Paramount's example and put their shows online so we can watch even more TV for free save the planet.
