EY Going for an Amputation-Free Emmy Awards Again This Year

If you really want to know the winners in advance, it will cost someone at EY their arm. 

EY implements numerous precautions to help ensure accuracy and safeguard results until they are announced on stage, including multiple sets of sealed envelopes transported to the ceremony in separate cars, triple-checking all results, keeping control of each envelope until it is handed to the presenter, hand-sealing every envelope and internally printing the winners' envelopes so the results never leave the firm's Los Angeles office. In the 26 years Ernst & Young LLP has been handling the Emmy® Awards, there has not been a security breach in the balloting process.
 
And in true Emmy® Award tradition, the envelopes containing the names of the winners will be escorted down the red carpet in a briefcase handcuffed to a senior EY representative.
