Lost Finale Eligible for Emmy
(from the Associated Press)
An Emmy rules exemption will give the talent behind Sunday's extended-length "Lost" finale the chance to compete for awards.
The TV academy's board of governors voted Wednesday night to make the upcoming "Lost" finale eligible for acting, directing and other individual honors despite the episode's two-and-a-half-hour length.
The academy's senior vice president for awards, John Leverence, says the ABC drama's producers had notified the academy that the show would exceed the running time allowed under Emmy rules.
The "Lost" finale airs 9 p.m. EDT Sunday on ABC.
