Emmys pushed back due to writers and actors strike

The 75th Primetime Emmys will not air on September 18 as the ceremony will likely be impacted by Hollywood’s shutdown with the writers and actors on strike.

According to multiple reports, the Creative Arts Emmys, set to take place on Sept. 9 and Sept. 10., will also be pushed back.

Fox is aiming to air the 2023 Primetime Emmys in January 2024, while the TV Academy is looking at a November date, Variety reports.

“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 Emmy nominations were announced on July 12, a day before the SAG-AFTRA strike began.

Actors are not allowed to promote their shows or movies during the strike. Per the WGA guidelines, writers are also prohibited from working during the Hollywood shutdown.

As Variety reports, HBO received the most Emmy nominations for its phenomenal series “Succession” (27 nominations), followed by “The Last of Us” (24) and “The White Lotus” (23).

A host has not been named yet for the upcoming awards show.
