The Emmys get indefinitely postponed

The Emmys hit pause

Together with

The Future. With two Hollywood strikes raging, the Emmys are moving out of September to… nobody knows. As long as the industry is on pause, so will the awards show (the first time it’s been moved since 9/11). Coupled with some high-profile movies and TV shows getting postponed, the once-abundant fall entertainment calendar may soon become a desert.

Strike shuffle
The Emmys are the latest strike casualty.

  • The 75th annual awards were supposed to air on September 18th on Fox, but they’re getting moved out of September entirely.
  • The Television Academy hasn’t dated the show yet but stressed it won’t take place until after the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have concluded.
  • There are no plans to take the show away from Fox.

The move was inevitable because… well… barely anyone was going to show up. According to THR, 16 of the 25 awards during the telecast go to writers and actors. And they won’t be there if the strikes are still happening. Additionally, Fox understands the show’s audience will be just as absent without stars.

Nonetheless, the second phase of voting is still slated for August 17th. So, the winners will likely be decided way before the red carpet ever rolls out.
