The 2023 Emmy Awards postponed: they will not take place in September

No new date announced at this time. The ceremony could even be postponed until 2024.

The last time it happened was because of the September 11 attacks. In 2001, the ceremony was postponed for two months. Two decades later, it was the ongoing strike by the writers’ union (WGA) and the actors’ union (SAG-AFTRA) that caused an upheaval in the calendar of the Hollywood industry.

THE 75th Emmy Awards will not take place on September 18 as planned, announces Variety. They were to air live on Fox (preceded the 9/11 weekend by the Creative Emmy Awards). But negotiations are at a standstill between the studios and the strikers. No agreement in sight between the Alliance of Film and Television Producers (AMPTP) and the unions. Certainly not this summer anyway. Because of this lack of visibility, the Academy of Emmys does not give a new date for his big night. According to Variety, Fox hopes to be able to reschedule the event in November. Too optimistic for the Academy, which is counting on a ceremony in January 2024 … which should suddenly push back the Golden Globes supposed to be held at that time.

However, the voting schedule remains unchanged. Members of the Academy have until the end of August to designate the winners among the nominees designated during the 2023 Emmy nominations unveiled at the beginning of July. Of course, the current strike also disrupts the campaign, since the unions forbid doing any promotion… even for a statuette.
