Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan raise their voices

The Emmy's are cutting out broadcasting writing awards in this year's telecast. Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have added their voices to a large list of Hollywood writers protesting the decision.

We, the undersigned showrunners and executive producers of television's current line-up of programs, oppose the Academy of Television Arts and Science's decision to remove writing awards from the live telecast. This decision conveys a fundamental understatement of the importance of writers in the creation of television programming and a symbolic attack on the primacy of writing in our industry. We implore ATAS to restore these awards to their rightful place in the live telecast of the 2009 Emmy Awards.

Hart Hanson, Bones
Stephen Nathan, Bones
