Last month, following the news that the actor’s union would be going on strike, it was revealed that the Primetime Emmys were likely going to be delayed, and today, it has been made official, as the Television Academy and Fox has announced the event will now air on Monday, 15th January 2024 (8:00-11:00 PM EST/5:00-8:00 PM PST) on FOX.

As the Emmy Awards celebrates its 75th Anniversary, the show will broadcast Live coast-to-coast from the Peacock Theater at LA Live and will honour the talented performers, writers, directors and craftspeople whose work has entertained, inspired and connected viewers across the globe throughout the past year.

The Emmy Awards will be executive-produced by Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay of Jesse Collins Entertainment. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will take place at the Peacock Theater at LA Live over two consecutive nights on Saturday, 6th January 2024, and Sunday, 7th January 2024. An edited presentation will be aired Saturday, 13th January 2024, at 8:00 PM EST/PST on FXX.

While the event is still months away, hopefully, the actor’s strike will be resolved by then, as otherwise, the event will likely be delayed or cancelled, since without the actors being available for the awards show, or able to promote their work during the strike, trying to run the event just wouldn’t work, since the general public wouldn’t want to watch an awards show with no stars. This is the first time the event has been postponed since 2001, which was due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Disney has been nominated for 163 awards at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards across its content brands and studios, including ABC, ABC News Studios, Disney Branded Television, Disney+, Disney Television Studios (20th Television Animation, 20th Television, and ABC Signature), FX, FX Productions, Hulu, National Geographic, Onyx Collective, Searchlight Pictures, Searchlight Television, and Walt Disney Studios (20th Century Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., Marvel Studios, and Walt Disney Pictures). Disney’s streaming platforms earned a total of 104 nominations, with Hulu and Disney+ receiving 64 and 40 nominations, respectively.

Hulu received a total of 64 nominations between its Hulu Originals and exclusive FX series premiering on the streamer, as well as FX’s Atlanta and The Old Man and ABC and 20th Television’s Abbott Elementary debuting on the service following their network premieres.

Walt Disney Studios received 40 nominations, including three for Outstanding Television Movie: Prey, which marks 20th Century Studios’ first-ever Emmy nomination; Searchlight Pictures’ Fire Island; and Walt Disney Pictures’ Hocus Pocus 2. Lucasfilm Ltd. received 23 nominations across a record-high four titles: Andor, Light & Magic, The Mandalorian, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, with the latter marking the Studio’s first-ever limited series nomination. Overall, Disney+ earned 40 nominations, including three for Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel.
