Get ready to celebrate television in September.

CBS and the Television Academy have set the 73rd Emmy Awards for Sunday, September 19. They will air live, starting at 8/7c, on CBS, as well as stream live and be available on demand on the streaming service Paramount+ (CBS All Access rebrands on March 4).

The Emmys delivered some interesting moments during its unorthodox broadcast as nominees videoed in from various locations.

Details, including host(s), producers, and venue, will be announced at a later date. We’ll also have to wait to find out what to expect from the ceremony itself. Will it be mostly virtual, a combination of in-person and virtual, or all in-person? (This will, of course, depend on the pandemic.) The 2020 event was a mix, with some appearing at the venue with host Jimmy Kimmel. It also hit an all-time low in ratings, with 6.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating.

The 2021 Golden Globe Awards, which aired on February 28, was also a combination of in-person — on both coasts, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in New York and Los Angeles, respectively — and Zoom.
