The 73rd annual Emmy Awards, which will honour the best in television and streaming on Sunday, September 19, are TV’s biggest night. Things are back to normal (sort of) with an in-person, indoor-outdoor ceremony set to take place at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, following last year’s Zoom show, which spawned a thousand memes from Jennifer Aniston putting out a literal fire.
The show will premiere on CBS and Paramount+, the service that replaced the now-defunct CBS All Access, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. If you don’t have a subscription to that platform and can’t get an over-the-air antenna signal, the show is available on YouTubeTV, FuboTV, Hulu Plus Live TV, and AT&T TV, all of which include CBS.
The nominations were announced in July by This Is Us’ Ron Cephas Jones and his daughter, Jasmine Jones, and included major wins for Disney+, Netflix, and HBO, as well as a number of firsts, such as MJ Rodriguez’s nomination for Pose. The Emmys are the unofficial kickoff to the slew of shows that culminate with the Oscars in March, with Kate Winslet, Anya Taylor-Joy, Michaela Coel, and Elizabeth Olsen all nominated. With the promise of a real-life red carpet and some of the pomp and circumstance that comes with awards season, the Emmys are the unofficial kickoff to the slew of shows that culminate with the Oscars in March. Cedric the Entertainer will serve as emcee, and if last year’s show is any indication of what’s to come in terms of red carpets, glitz, and glamour, we can expect Hollywood to return to its old high-gloss, over-the-top self.
