‘Lost’ Fan? Don’t Miss Today’s Menu

mmm_2-3.gifIf you are a fan of the addictive ABC drama “Lost,” you’ll want to listen to today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast. Gearing up for next month’s Season 6 premiere of “Lost,” hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven welcomed Nikki Stafford, who has written five unofficial guides to the show.

Nikki ran through the possible scenarios that could occur in the coming season but, of course, only came up with more questions. But ultimately, she manages to stay positive about the challenging show. “If you stick with it, you are so rewarded by the end…of ‘Lost,’” she said.

“Unlike ‘The Sopranos,’ I don’t think they’re going to leave us hanging,” Nikki said about the creators of “Lost.” “I believe they know where they’re going and its going to be a satisfying conclusion.”

Tom O’Neil Explains New Emmy Voting

Tom O’Neil has the goods on the new and improved Emmy voting process. (How does he do it? Scoop after scoop after scoop…) After Lost lost, the TV Academy knew something was amiss and came up with a plan:

This summer the nominees for best acting and series will be determined by a 50/50 mix of the popular vote of TV academy members plus the scores of judging panels which evaluate sample episodes submitted by the top 10 vote-getters in each category.

One of the problems in the past is that the judges didn’t view sample episodes of everything nominated in one category. This year, panel participants must watch all 10 episodes submitted per category and then rank them. And there’s math involved, too.

Jeeze-louise, this is complicated. People’s Choice Awards, anyone?
