Emmy is awarded by the Academy of television arts and sciences, founded in 1946, and is considered one of the most prestigious awards for television work. The fate of the prize is determined by about 23 thousand members of the TV Academy. The Golden Emmy statuette, made in the form of a winged woman with a symbolic atom in her hands, represents the unity of science and art.
