"Women's Media Center investigation: 2018 review of gender and Emmy Primetime non-acting nominations":

Men received 70 percent of the non-acting nominations in the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards, according to a new report published by the Women’s Media Center.

In a year when women’s voices have been particularly loud and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have challenged sexual harassment, assault, misogyny, and sexism in media and beyond, the number of women nominated for Emmys in directing, producing, writing and editing – the most influential categories – remains unchanged from 2017 at 26 percent. 

Overall, the percentage of non-acting Primetime Emmy Award nominations inched up a mere two percentage points to 30 percent.
