During the show, viewers can continue to vote for their favorite of the three. The Breakthrough Performance of the Year, as chosen by television fans on TV.com, will be announced at the end of the telecast.

"Television is a medium defined by memorable moments and stirring performances that get people talking," said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events, CBS Entertainment. "We want to give fans the opportunity to voice their thoughts on the events and personalities that defined the 2008-2009 television season and have their votes play a direct role in shaping part of the Emmy telecast."
