Extended `Lost’ finale gets Emmy Awards exemption

Thu May 20, 2:01 pm ET

LOS ANGELES – An Emmy rules exemption will give the talent behind Sunday’s extended-length “Lost” finale the chance to compete for awards.

The TV academy’s board of governors voted Wednesday night to make the upcoming “Lost” finale eligible for acting, directing and other individual honors despite the episode’s two-and-a-half-hour length.

The academy’s senior vice president for awards, John Leverence, says the ABC drama’s producers had notified the academy that the show would exceed the running time allowed under Emmy rules.

The “Lost” finale airs 9 p.m. EDT Sunday on ABC.

Tv guide article : Dvd/Blu ray bonus news !

An ABC source confirms to me that after Sunday’s series finale, titled “The End,” airs from 9 – 11:30 pm ET/PT, the season six DVD (as well as the complete series collection, out on DVD and Blu-ray August 24) will continue the saga with upwards of twenty minutes of additional storyline.

“It’s in production now,” confirms the source, who couldn’t yet confirm the actual running time of the new scenes. “Damon and Carlton wanted to offer fans answers to additional questions they couldn’t get to in the body of the final show.”

‘Lost’ auction preview: What would you bid on?

Profiles in History has already listed 100 items in its ‘Lost’ Auction Preview! (Bidding starts this summer.) If Dharma-branded snacks and Virgin Mary statues presumably not stuffed with real heroin aren’t your speed, perhaps you’d prefer the Swan/Pearl computer or film projector, Locke’s wheelchair, Kate’s little airplane, Faraday’s journal, Sawyer’s reading glasses, Sun’s Pearl Necklace #1, or Crate of Approximately Two Dozen Crystallized Dynamite Sticks from the Black Rock?

I’m a little sad that Charlotte’s Messenger Bag didn’t get the “hero” status applied to Desmond’s Hero Backpack and Hurley’s Hero Striped Canteen — it seems Charlotte was not a hero; nor was Hurley’s portable CD player. (Kidding; I know what “hero” means and that all portable CD players are heroes.) Meanwhile, I’m guessing they’ll have to pay someone to take Nikki and Paolo’s Matryoshka Dolls Used to Hold the Stolen Diamonds.

Things I’m surprised to not see on the list: Hurley-size chicken bucket, life-size donkey wheel, that amazing blue VW van, and the oatmeal and chocolate brown blankets used to wrap up the Jacob and Man in Black babies in last night’s episode. (Touched by an Allison Janney!) Which Lost props would you want in your home…or garage?

Get your special LOST covers with EW magazine


With just a few precious hours of Lost left before the Island drama fades to (Man in) Black on May 23, this week’s Entertainment Weekly pays tribute to the ABC show with Lost: The Complete Viewer’s Guide, a special package with everything you need to know to get ready for the epic finale. First up, an in-depth preview of the final episode. Our own Jeff “Doc” Jensen was on set for the last days of filming and shares intel from the Island, including what it was like to be there for all the tearful goodbyes. He also reveals teases for the final few episodes, finds out what the actors plan to do next, and suggests some possible Lost spin-offs to keep the franchise rolling.
But we’re just getting this mysterious, time-traveling party started. Next: a flow chart (guaranteed not to make your brain hurt) explaining how all the castaways are connected, which is followed by an oral history of how it all began — the making of the pilot episode of Lost. Show creators J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof, as well as the entire cast, share stories from the set of what would turn out to be the most expensive pilot in television history, and explain why it ended up being worth every single penny. We then provide handy dandy (graded) recaps of every single season, hook you up with a Lost A-Z Glossary, and take you on an eerie blast into the past as we host a gathering of some Lost souls who died before their time. Like we said, it’s everything you need to know to get ready for the finale. And then just a little bit more. It’s a package so formidable, in fact, that it could not even be contained to a single cover. Or two. Or three, even. Try 10! That’s right, 10! Each of our favorite Losties (Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke/Fake Locke, Ben, Claire, Hurley, Sun, Jin, and Sayid) gets their very own cover: Check back at EW.com soon for a look at all 10, then order ‘em all to complete your collection.
