Last month it was announced that for the first time in over twenty years the Emmy Awards would be postponing the ceremony amid the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The original date for the awards was set for September 18th, but no updated date was provided in the press release. The last time the ceremony was delayed occurred in 2001 in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. A delayed Emmys is rare and with no additional information many were left speculating when the ceremony would take place.
With Phase II Emmy voting set to kick off next week, it appears, for now, the rest of the Emmys calendar will remain intact. In an official announcement made by the Television Academy and Fox, which will broadcast the 75th Emmys, revealed the new planned ceremony date:
“(LOS ANGELES — August 10, 2023) — The Television Academy and FOX today jointly announced that the telecast of the 75th Emmy® Awards will air on Monday, January 15, 2024 (8:00-11:00 PM EST/5:00-8:00 PM PST) on FOX.
