With the writer’s and actor’s strikes now underway and with no end date in sight, it has now been revealed that this year’s 75th Primetime Emmys Awards will not air on September 18th 2023. It should come as no surprise since without the actors being available for the awards show, nor 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.

Since the event is due to take place in under two months’ time, plans needed to be finalised as the vendors, producers and others needed to know if the event was going to happen. This is the first time the event has been postponed since 2001, which was due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It’s not known when the Emmys will now take place, though according to Variety, FOX is aiming to air the show in January 2024, while the TV Academy is pushing for a November date, since pushing it back to January could interfere with the Oscars. Depending on how long the strikes continue, all these plans could change.   The actors and writers are striking for a number of reasons, including better working conditions, restrictions on the use of Artificial Intelligence and better pay.

Last week, the TV Academy said in a statement:

“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,”

Disney has over a hundred nominations for this year’s Emmy awards, with “The Bear” nominated for thirteen different awards and “Only Murders In The Building” nominated for eleven.
