Top 75 Most Impactful Television Moments

In celebration of the Emmy Awards’ 75th Anniversary, we invited Television Academy members to review several hundred programs and news moments submitted by our Peer Group Executive Committees, and to then vote on those they felt have had the greatest impact on the viewing public over the past 75 years.

The Top 75 Most Impactful Television Moments is an exciting look at the television experiences that have shaped our culture and society, selected by members of the Television Academy — and a first for our organization to present this type of recognition.

We invite you to enjoy a walk down memory lane as you review the information below – Happy 75 years, Emmy!
