Possible Future Emmy Awards Categories

Is it us, or does it seem like every year the Emmys haul out new categories to keep up with the diversity of programming and yet they still have to haul out that "Special Citation" designation just so we know that they realize that When The Levees Broke doesn't really belong in the same category as Meerkat Manor? Our answer, then, is more categories! More! A category for every possible nominatable actor or program! No need to thank us, Emmys. Here are a few to get you started:
