Let's peek inside HBO's Emmy campaign packages

April 20, 2010 | 11:46 am

HBO shipped its Emmy campaign box to the 14,000 members of the TV academy a week or two earlier than usual, this one arriving in early April. In addition to the box with two booklets (one for DVDs of TV series, one for specials/movies/docus), a separate package was shipped containing three DVDs of the full miniseries "The Pacific." Not included were some shows that don't air till after the packages shipped. On May 5, HBO will send voters an additional package containing DVDs of "You Don't Know Jack" (Al Pacino as Dr. Jack Kevorkian), "The Special Relationship" (Michael Sheen and Dennis Quaid as British Prime Minister Tony Blair and U.S. President Bill Clinton) and Bill Maher's special "I'm Not Wrong."

Compare this year's Emmy box to the ones shipped in 2009, 2008 and 2007. Read the opinions of our forum posters to this year's box here.
