Isn't an "emmy" award given out by actors, for actors?
You know what an actor is, correct?
That is a person who's job it is to make you think, for a short time (sometimes a lifetime) that they are someone else, doing interesting things. These people do actions, as told to by someone else, and repeating words written by someone else. Their entire lot in life is to lie to you.
This is what the award is given for - best liar in a particular story.
