iPod Emmy nominees

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (N.A.T.A.S) has unveiled the nominees for the first Emmy Award ever bestowed to original entertainment programming created specifically for iPods, mobile phones, PDAs and computers. Six finalists emerged from 74 entries, including AOL's coverage of the Live 8 concerts and the new short "Mobispodes" created for "24" fans, according to the L.A. Times. The Emmy winner will be named on April 22nd at the Creative Arts banquet, to be held at the Marriott Marquis in New York. Interestingly, the Los Angeles-based Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (A.T.A.S) which honors primetime programming and is sometimes involved in legal disputes with N.A.T.A.S, is so far quietly watching the offshoot of primetime's "24," according to the report. Should the two academies battle in court again, there may not be a successful resolution because the old primetime/daytime definitions don't apply to iPod programs, which can be viewed on-demand.
