The show must go on.
The 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are happening — even if event organizers aren’t exactly sure how yet.
Like much of the biggest events in entertainment, there are still many variables around the 2020 Emmys that are unknown.
But for this year’s show, we have a host and a set air date, making the Emmys the first officially confirmed award show of the pandemic.
Here’s what we know so far about this year’s biggest night in television.
When are the 2020 Emmys happening?
The 2020 Emmys are set to air on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8/7c on ABC. It is still unknown whether the ceremonies will be held virtually, or if they will take place live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Where can you watch the 2020 Emmys?
This year’s event is airing on ABC, after being broadcast by Fox in 2019.
Who are this year’s nominees?
We don’t know… yet. The nominations for this year’s show are scheduled to be announced on Tuesday, July 28 at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. PT.
Who is hosting this year’s show?
On June 16, it was announced that Jimmy Kimmel would host this year’s Emmys. This will be Kimmel’s third time hosting, after previously hosting the show in 2012 and again in 2016. It will also be the Emmys returning to the classic format after going host-less in 2019.
