When are the Emmy Awards? What to know about the host, 2024 nominees and predicted winners

The biggest night in television is nearly upon us as the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards swiftly approach. The star-studded awards show, initially scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on Sept. 18, was postponed amid the dual writers and actors strikes.

This marks the most significant delay of the Emmys since 2001, when the show was put on hold for seven weeks following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the related U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. (The Emmys carried on during the 2020 pandemic with a virtual show.)

Here's what to know about the Emmys, which honor excellence in the TV industry, and the rest of the 2024 awards season.

When are the Emmys?

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards will be held Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. EST/5 PST.


The show will broadcast live from the Peacock Theater in downtown LA.

Who's hosting the Emmys?

Actor and comedian Anthony Anderson will host the 75th Emmy Awards.

"With our industry's recent challenges behind us, we can get back to what we love − dressing up and honoring ourselves. And there's no better celebratory moment to bring the creative community together than the milestone 75th Emmy Awards," Anderson said in a statement.

Where to watch the Emmys?

The Emmy Awards will air on Fox. The show will be available to stream a day later on Hulu (Jan. 16).

Why are the Emmys so late this year?

The Primetime Emmy Awards are generally held every September.

The 75th Emmy Awards were scheduled to take place on Sept. 18, while the Creative Arts ceremonies were planned for Sept. 9 and 10.

In July 2023, USA TODAY confirmed that the awards show would be postponed to January because the writers and actors strikes largely put Hollywood on pause.

In August, it was officially announced the 2023 Emmy Awards would be pushed to early January. The Primetime Emmys would air on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, while the Creative Arts Emmy Awards would be held Jan. 6 and 7 (airing Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. EST on FXX).

These new dates align with Emmy history as the first awards ceremony took place on Jan. 25, 1949. They continued to be held in January or February throughout the early 1950s.
