Changes are coming to the Emmys: The Television Academy on Friday announced the addition of two new categories to the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Outstanding Music Supervision will honor creative contributions made by music supervisors, while Outstanding Casting in a Reality Series will go to casting directors who put together casts for structured, unstructured, or competition reality shows.

That won’t be the only update to the ceremony as it heads into its 69th year. Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series will now be split into Cinematography for a One-Hour Series and Cinematography for a Half-Four Series, and several former juried awards have now been funneled into a new interactive media category. These new categories include Outstanding Original Interactive Program, Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Within a Scripted Program, Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Within an Unscripted Program, and Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Programming.
