Stuff will be live-blogging the 75th Emmy Awards from 2pm onwards.
The 75th Emmy Awards, which honour the best of prime-time television, is all set to make its comeback on Tuesday, four months later than originally scheduled.
The award show, which was initially slated to air in September 2023, got postponed due to Hollywood writers’ and actors’ strikes that were taking place at the time. Strikes meant that A-list celebrities could not walk the red carpet or give teary acceptance speeches at the event.
Hosted by American actor and comedian Anthony Anderson, the Emmys arrive on the heels of the Golden Globes, where HBO’s Succession dominated most television categories.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 75th annual Emmy Awards.
When and where can I watch Emmys?
The award show will be broadcast live on Tuesday, January 16 at 2pm NZT.
Kiwis can watch the event live through The Television Academy’s YouTube page, as TVNZ nor Three offer coverage of the event.
Kiwi fans can also join Stuff’s live blog at 2pm as we bring you all the glamour from the red carpet as well as winners as they happen.
This year’s awards is divided into two separate events; a slightly smaller scale Creative Arts Emmys which already took place on the same weekend as Golden Globes and the main event with all the glamour and charm.
Who is hosting?
Black-ish and Kangaroo Jack fame, actor and comedian Anthony Anderson will host the 75th Emmy Awards.
Due to the rescheduling of the events, Anderson is taking the stage just over a week after comedian Jo Koy, who was highly criticised for his disastrous monologue at the 81st annual Golden Globe Awards.
“When FOX asked me to host this historic telecast, I was over the moon that Taylor Swift was unavailable, and now I can’t wait to be part of the biggest night in television,” Anderson said in a news release, reports the Washington Post.
Who made the cut, and who missed out on a nomination?
The nominations list is mostly dominated by HBO shows, with Succession earning 27 nominations, The Last of Us having 24 and The White Lotus securing 23.
The White Lotus managed to get nine nominees in the supporting actor/actress category, including Jennifer Coolidge, Aubrey Plaza and Theo James.
Despite being heavy on drama, The Bear is nominated in the comedy category. The series has already won four Emmys at the Creative Arts ceremonies and is nominated for 13 overall. Ted Lasso, which won two, was tops amongst comedies, with 21 overall nominations for its final season.
A surprise exclusion from this year’s nominations was Yellowstone, which was left out despite its global popularity and the various prequels it inspired, including 1923 and 1883.
