Check out this tweet that Variety just posted:

The Doctor Who series itself hasn’t been submitted but Peter Capaldi has as lead actor along with other submissions. Here’s what Variety had to say about the development:

BBC America’s “Doctor Who” has been submitted for Emmy consideration for the first time ever. Now that the American cabler has come aboard as a co-producer, the venerable Brit series is finally eligible for consideration. Although it was not submitted as a drama series, star Peter Capaldi is on the lead actor ballot, showrunner Steven Moffat and director Rachel Talalay are on the writing and directing ballots for the episode “Heaven Sent” and the series is a possible nominee for costumes, production design, prosthetic makeup, and visual effects.

Score one for the nerds! I wish I had a Tardis so I could go forward in time to see if this works out. I wouldn’t tell you when I got back though, you know, timeline stuff.
