What are the Emmy’s, when are they happening and could they be delayed?
The Emmy Awards, or Emmys, are a prestigious award show that honors the best in American and international television. The awards are presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), and the 75th annual Emmys are currently scheduled to take place on Monday, September 18, 2023. The ceremony will air live on Fox from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM Pacific Time (8:00 PM to 11:00 PM Eastern Time).
A host for the ceremony has not yet been announced, but Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay are set to produce. The possibility of a delay to the ceremony definitely exists if there is no resolution to the ongoing writers strike later this summer. Additionally, the possibility of an actors strike looms as SAG-AFTRA continues contract negotiations with the AMPTP group representing studios and streamers, the deadline for which is set for 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Wednesday.
