Home Television Pandemic’s Price: Emmy Awards Face a 2nd Year without Governor’s Balls or...

There will be an Emmy Awards. But it will be like last year’s show– no live audience, and no Governor’s Ball.

Same as last year.

With COVID on the rise again in Los Angeles, and the Delta variant wreaking havoc, thousands of people will not be congregating at parties or the actual show on September 19th.

Ditto for the Creative Arts Emmys on September 11th and 12th.

According to the TV Academy, they will host “a series of enhanced Emmy Nominee Celebrations in advance of the Emmys at its NoHo Arts District campus. These intimate-themed gatherings will honor nominees across the numerous peer groups.”

The big Emmys show on September 19th will be limited to nominees and their guests.

You have to feel bad for these people. They’re not getting the treatment of past Emmy players. But until everyone is vaccinated and the variants have abated, this is how things will work all over the country, not just in Los Angeles.

Get vaccinated!
