You would be wrong if you believed that the Academy Awards will be the benchmark for award shows in future. You are dead wrong. Although it may not be so serious, the Emmys won’t follow the Steven Soderbergh route of having the ceremony held in a train station. The Emmys will not award Best Actor, so you can almost guarantee that Anthony Hopkins will not win – unless he is nominated for his delightful Instagram posts.
The Emmys will not be doing the entire Zoom-based ceremony this year. Jason Sudekis is unlikely to be seen in a hoodie similar to the Golden Globes. They’re instead moving the ceremony outside and keeping the guest list under wraps. This is to protect the Emmys’ star-studded presenters, hard-working crew, and their hard-working crew from the continuing pandemic.
It is available from where?
Networks are changing again with the Emmy Awards. The Emmy Awards were broadcast on ABC last year, which was the year before Fox. The honors will be shared by CBS and Paramount+, everyone’s favorite streaming service. The broadcast will be at 8 PM EST on Sunday, September 19. The show will be available live on CBS or streaming on Paramount+. We don’t want to disappoint anyone who wants to enjoy it both ways.
Who is hosting?
Jimmy Kimmel, the ABC golden boy, is gone. Cedric, the Entertainer is CBS’s new company man this year. Cedric, the Entertainer, is a first-time presenter who has been a long-time Emmy observer. He was also the star of CBS’ The Neighborhood. In a statement, he said, “Since my childhood, I have been huddled next to my grandmother and television has always been my reliable friend. So it is an immense honor for me host this year’s Emmy Awards.”
Where is the ceremony being held?
The ceremony will take place in person unlike last year’s, when Kimmel was held captive in the Staples Center and other celebrities were kept in Zoom screens, much like E! Channel version of the Phantom Zone. It will take place outside on the Event Deck at L.A. Live, with a small audience. This space will give the opportunity to use an “indoor/outdoor” setting and provide seating for a smaller audience. Variety continues:
Nominations for teams with three or more members will be restricted to four tickets each. This means that not all nominees can attend this year’s awards. Before you RSVP, we recommend that all members of nominated teams work together to coordinate and plan how they will allocate their four tickets.
Is the Television Academy yet to announce this year’s list of performers and presenters?
No. We will keep you informed, however. You can imagine Jennifer Coolidge presenting all awards at an Emmy ceremony.
