Who Would Win A Social Media Emmy?

When you were watching the Emmy’s were you wondering who would win if there was a “social media” category?

Well, the folks at RadiumOne were – and they came up with a nifty Infographic to show who would win. Write down some guesses before you look and let us know how eerily accurate you were in the comments!

Why did they undertake this exercise when you KNOW who would win already? Well, because it may have been a sad reality check for celebs and shows with solid social media followings. Maybe we should’ve shared this before the awards?

“We learned that certain shows who have enormous levels of content being shared and discussed digitally by viewers didn’t necessarily translate to popularity with the Academy. For example, the Amazing Race had very little social buzz but won the Emmy for Best Reality Series,” said Rebecca Watson, vice president of business development at RadiumOne.
