  1. Why not going back to the public in voting for the public nominations?

    There’s a chance that networks can put up their own stars (that meet the criteria) and vote for their network stars only…. which defeats the point of the whole thing

  2. You have to hope that someone employed by a broadcaster would not just vote for their shows an talent. Also you would need an even spread of judges between the broadcasters
