Television Academy explains why Lady Gaga is not eligible for an Emmy nomination.

Lady Gaga and Diane Warren's song 'Till It Happens To You' from the sexual assault documentary 'The Hunting Ground' is nominated at the upcoming Emmy Awards for 'Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics'. The song is now being considered to be the first ever in history to be nominated for a Grammy, Oscar, and Emmy in the same year.

 

Both Lady Gaga and Diane Warren were nominated at the Grammys and Oscars but not at the Emmys. This is because the Television Academy didn't recongnize Lady Gaga's contributions to the song, despite of co-writing, producing, and performing it. Songwriter Diane Warren is the only one nominated, making it her first ever Emmy nomination.

 

A representative of the Television Academy told Billboard the reason why Gaga wasn't nominated along with Diane, revealing that Gaga didn't meet the eligibility bar of 20% contribution in writing the song. "The minimum cue sheet percentage for eligibility is 20 percent. Diane and Gaga worked it out internally that Diane had 90 percent and Gaga had 10 percent, so Gaga was not eligible and hence did not join Diane on the entry form," the representative said. Cue sheets break down artists' contributions in writing songs, and cue sheets credits from Diane Warren is the only one Emmy recognizes. 

 

Aside from that, fans were also shocked that Lady Gaga, who recently won Best Actress at the Golden Globes for her performance on 'American Horror Story: Hotel', was not nominated for any acting category at the Emmy Awards which is set to take place in Los Angeles on September 18th.

    They don't recognize real talent. I'm so disappointed Gaga was snub. She is so talented.

    I'd rather an Emmy go to Eva Green for Penny dreadful which has been a far more consistent all-round well performing cast than AHS has, the last two seasons have been its weakest so far (season one was pretty much a walking cliche for the first half of the season) and it's highly over-rated. Lady Gaga was good but I don't think she anywhere near deserves the hype she got from this. Till it happens to you however, was an outstanding performance, its a shame about the Emmy's guidelines on that one.
