The 2023 Emmys Have Been Postponed Until Jan. 15 Due to Strike Stalemate
The 75th Primetime Emmys has been postponed from its original September 18 date to January 15, 2024 due to the Hollywood strikes.
The 75th Primetime Emmys has been postponed to January 15, 2024 after originally being scheduled for a September 18th airdate. The new telecast was announced on Thursday (August 10), as there are hopes for the Hollywood strikes to end by the first quarter of next year. While the Emmy Awards will still take place at LA Live's Peacock Theater, it will mark five months since nominations were announced. Despite WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the final round for Emmys ballots will be held from August 17 to August 28.
Last month, Variety reported that the awards ceremony was delayed due to the writers and actors strikes, also the first time the annual television event has been rescheduled since 2001 due to the 9/11 attacks. The telecast was later broadcast in November of that year.
“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 last week in a statement.
The Primetime Emmys have since occurred annually, even during the pandemic in 2020, where it was held virtually.
The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA have rules that limit interviews and entertainment events that members can attend during the strike. For example, those part of SAG-AFTRA “cannot be present for film or television premieres, cannot complete interviews when the subject is completed work (including at conventions, such as Comic-Con), and cannot attend film festivals or awards shows or share content related to film and television projects on their social media."
Nominations for the Emmys are led by HBO, where Succession leads with 27 noms, followed by The Last of Us (24) and The White Lotus (23). Also earning nods were The Bear (13), Dahmer (13), Wednesday (12), Abbott Elementary (8), and more.
