Date, Hosts and Nominations – NBC New York

Are you ready for some football? Fine, but the return of the NFL is why the 2022 Emmy Awards have been moved from their usual Sunday mooring to Monday.

Television’s top awards rotate among the top four networks, and this year’s home show, NBC, has reserved the second Sunday night of September for Tampa Bay vs. Dallas. After the Emmys struggled through two years of pandemic-restricted ceremonies, a day’s delay seems like a minor annoyance.

The industry is expected to do its best on Monday, skipping down the red carpet and introducing itself and the plethora of shows across streaming services, cable and, to a degree that pales in comparison to years past, old-school -Network Tariffs Celebrates.

But what’s a Hollywood awards show without a TV audience? A poorly rated disappointment, and that’s where you come in. If you decide to do your bit and tune in, here’s a roadmap with everything you need to know about the 2022 Emmys.

Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 73rd Annual Emmy Awards on Sunday September 19th.

WHEN ARE THE EMMMYS 2022?

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled for Monday, September 12 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The approximately three-hour ceremony begins at 8 p.m. EDT and will air live on NBC and free on the streaming service Peacock.

But the Emmys with a total of 118 awards are not a flash in the pan. Winners in 25 key categories, including best drama and comedy series, will be announced during the broadcast ceremony, with the remainder split between the September 3rd and 4th Creative Arts Awards. An edited version of the weekend ceremonies, with categories including sound editing and cinematography, will air September 10 at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FXX.

WHO HOSTS THE EMMYS?

The honor usually goes to a comedian with a link to the network airing the event, and NBC stayed the course, choosing Saturday Night Live veteran Kenan Thompson, a first-time Emmy host preceded by a stint as a host by “SNL” stars. The ceremony last tried going unhosted in 2019, but the results haven’t always been pretty. Or entertaining.

WHICH SHOWS ARE NOMINATED FOR THE TOP AWARDS AT THE EMMYS?

Several previous winners are again vying for the Best Series award, including “Ted Lasso,” a newcomer when it won Best Comedy Series of 2021, and “Succession,” which won Best Drama of 2020. (The series did not air during the 2021 selection window, when “The Crown” won.)

There are impressive newcomers too, including dystopian drama Squid Game and crime comedy Only Murders in the Building.

Actors nominated, hoping for repeat winners, include Ted Lasso’s Jason Sudeikis, Hacks’ Jean Smart and Euphoria’s Zendaya. Check out the full list of Emmy nominees.

WHAT WERE THE MOST SURPRISING EMMY NODS?

So many, where to start? The final season of “This Is Us” received a single nomination for original music and lyrics after garnering Emmy awards for several cast members over the past few years. Similarly, last year black-ish ended its groundbreaking run with just two creative arts nominations. On the other hand, it was far from a hit that Dave Chappelle’s “The Closer,” with its controversial anti-transgender comments, would receive a special nomination for best strain. It did.

WHO DECIDES THE EMMY WINNERS?

The TV Academy’s more than 17,000 voting members are entitled to select nominees and winners in 14 categories, including drama, comedy and limited series. Acting awards, including major, supporting, and guest actors, are set by peer groups, as are direction, screenplay, and other individual areas of achievement. The number of nominees in most categories is generally tied to the number of submissions, except for best comedy and drama series: they get eight nominees each.
