Dash and Lily was nominated for Outstanding Young Adult Series, a Daytime Emmy category, and I think the determination for Series category is generally made by the entrant, not by the Emmys people. For 2021, all five nominees for Outstanding Young Adult Series were on Netflix or Hulu.

Going back to the controversy about so many actors from Hamilton getting Emmy- nominated, there is an interesting article linked that attributes this to the Emmy nomination process. Unlike other big awards, the Emmys allow voters to deem as many candidates to be nomination-worthy as they want rather than a fixed number. Elsewhere on the web, it's implied that the voter actually assigns a score to each nomination-worthy candidate rather than a simple yes/no. So the premise is that the voter who loves Hamilton and may not have seen the other candidates in that category will give all the Hamilton actors great scores.

It would be interesting to know whether nominators who score fewer candidates tend to give higher scores than ones who nominate a lot of candidates. That would make some sense. If you only nominate five candidates, you might give them all maximum scores. But if you nominate twenty-five candidtes, you would probably differentiate them in some way by giving some of them less-than-maximum scores.

A local issue also highlighted that different people are going to score differently. Our local stage awards group has struggled with figuring out how to reconcile that there are so many theater productions each year in the area that almost no one will have seen them all. One thing they tried is to have a small number of judges see any given show, so different shows were seen by different judges. But the same production would sometimes sweep the awards because the judges for those particular shows must have given high scores in every category to those shows across the board. More recently, they moved away from this system and have one group see the shows first and the judges only have to see the "Recommended" shows.
