Emmy Awards Join Daytime Emmys in Limbo as TV Academy Leaves September Date for Sometime in Winter


The Emmy Awards are no longer happening in September.

Thanks to the dual strikes of actors and writers, the Emmys have been postponed indefinitely. This isn’t a surprise. There’s no way the TV Academy could stage them until the strikes are settled.

The Emmys join the Daytime Emmys in this predicament. The Daytime Emmys were set for June. They are also on hold.

The Emmys will hopefully be rescheduled for December or January. The latter month is problematic because of the Critics Choice Awards and maybe the Golden Globes. The longer the studios insist on playing this game, the more screwed up things are going to get.
