Emmy Awards Officially Postponed As Hollywood Strikes Drag On

 The 75th Primetime Emmys will not air on September 18 as previously scheduled due to the ongoing strikes in Hollywood, according to a Thursday report from Variety

Both the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and the Writers Guild of America (WGA) are currently on strike, which has effectively shut down any work on Hollywood productions until an agreement can be reached.

This is the first time the Emmys have been postponed since 2001, according to a report from Variety. The show got moved after the terrorist attack on 9/11 and didn’t air until November. The show was held at a smaller venue and had a more somber tone, the outlet noted.

While there is no new date set for the Emmys, Variety previously reported that Fox is expecting to have a January 2024 broadcast date. Meanwhile, the TV Academy had apparently been aiming to have the ceremonies rescheduled for November.

“Like the rest of the industry, we hope there will be an equitable and timely resolution for all parties in the current guild negotiations. We continue to monitor the situation closely with our partners at Fox and will advise if and when there is an update available,” the TV Academy said in a statement last week.

Emmys nominations were announced on July 12, just two days before the SAG-AFTRA strike started and during the WGA strike, which has been going on since May 2. “Succession” led the list with 27 nominations. Next was the zombie thriller “The Last of Us” with 24, “The White Lotus” with 23, and “Ted Lasso” with 21.


On the Netflix roster, “Beef” and “Dahmer” both had 13 nominations while “Wednesday” had 12. 

HBO’s “Barry” and Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” both had 11 nominations while Amazon’s “Daisy Jones and The Six had 9. ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” had 8, AMC’s “Better Call Saul” had 7, and Disney+’s “Obi-Wan Kenobi” had 5.
