The Emmys are shifted to January 2024, on the day of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The 75th Emmy Awards were scheduled to take place on Monday, January 15, 2024 by Fox and the Television Academy. This event is being televised for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and will be broadcasted after almost four months since its original plan on September 18; in addition, Fox has updated the key art for this year’s event; check here for more information.

Variety’s initial report stated that the Emmys would be delayed until January due to strikes by WGA and SAG-AFTRA. However, Fox had been pushing for a January move, while the TV Academy had advocated for November. With no negotiations taking place between the studios and the two guilds, it appears likely that there will be lingering work on September 11, when vendors were informed that their preferred time was already in September.

The Emmys are now scheduled to take place during the winter awards season, which could result in more conflicts. Additionally, the TV Academy has announced that the Creative Arts Embarcaders will be held on different days, namely September 9 and September 10.

The Golden Globe Awards have already declared their scheduled date of January 7, but no one has confirmed a broadcast partner for the event. If the award is carried through, there could be conflicting programs. However, the Creative Arts Emmys typically features scripted and unscripteD nights, so there may be little overlap between the two.

The Emmys’ move to January brings about another peculiar situation: The Globes, Critics Choice Awards (slated for January 14), SAG Awards(February 24), and other guild awards will recognize programs from January 1 to December 31, 2023, while the Emmie eligibility window for this next ceremony covers June 1, 2022 to May 31, 2020. This means that some TV shows and performances on the show will be given preference over those awarded at the GlobeS, Crypsos/SAG ceremonies.

Nevertheless, the peculiarity of these circumstances persists. The TV Academy has not modified the Phase 2 voting schedule for the 75th Emmys, which means that caste-members will still need to complete their ballots between August 17 and August 28. After that, results will remain confidential for several months.

The Peacock Theater at LA Live will continue to be the venue for The Creative Arts and Primetime Emmys, with Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay as executive producers.

Moreover, FXX will still be airing an edited version of the two Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, January 13, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET.

The reason why Fox and the TV Academy chose to focus on Martin Luther King Jr. Day was that it is a holiday, making it easier to organize an all-day event than not. This also gives rise to ample time for an awards show on this day, as demonstrated by The Golden Globes which were held on either of these dates for several years before moving to fewer Sundays.

Although originally planned for a Monday to avoid the weekend football schedule, this year’s Emmys on September 18 will now be presented as if it were going against Monday Night Football and would benefit from promotion during Fox’S coverage of an NFL wild card game that Sunday. However, it may still be scheduled for another wildcard game on January 15, which could be aired on ESPN/ABC.

The Emmys have not shifted their dates since 2001, when the telecast was moved to January due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and U.S. military action in Afghanistan. The January 15 date is also considered the first Emys ceremony in calendar year history, with changes from February through 1950 and then to February in 1952, 1955, April, 1959, May, and June. From 1961 to 1964, it was changed to September and again in 1977.

The announcement of the nominations for this year occurred on July 12, which was less than 48 hours before the SAG-AFTRA strike commenced, effectively ending all production and promotion in the entertainment industry.

With 27 nominations, HBO’s “Succession” has been the most successful for this year, including best drama and lead actor (Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Jeremy Strong), while “The Last of Us” is the first video game adaptation to receive major Emmy recognition with 24 noms.

The biggest comedy of the year was “Ted Lasso” from Apple TV+, which received 21 noms. Meanwhile, Netflix’s “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmers Story” earned 13 nominations and was the most recognized limited/anthology series this year. Roku’S “Weird:The Al Yankovic Story” was among the top 10 TV movie nominees with eight nods, and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” came in at number seven for the highest unscripteurt.
