The Emmys 2022: date and everything we know about the annual Emmy TV awards so far

T

he 74th Emmy Awards are nearly upon us, and each year they celebrate the best TV shows and performances from the last year, in a variety of categories, from drama to comedy, reality and more.

This year’s event is likely to return to pre-pandemic type of ceremony, in contrast to the 2021 Emmys, which took place outside on The Event Deck at L.A. Live.

The 2022 edition will mark a realignment of the Emmys following an agreement between the two TV academies, dissolving the usual division of Primetime and Daytime editions.

Going forward, the ceremonies will be divided by genre, with comedy, drama, limited, reality and variety series plus telefilms competing for the traditionally primetime awards.

Here’s everything you need to know…

When are the Emmys 2022?

On Monday, September 12, 2022, the Primetime Emmy Awards will air on NBC.

Where will the Emmys 2022 be held?

The official location for the Emmys 2022 is yet to be announced, but rumours suggest that it will return to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The Microsoft Theatre has hosted many previous Emmys, but has been closed for the last two years due to the Covid pandemic.

How can I watch the Emmys 2022?

If you’re in the United States, you can watch the Emmys 2022 on NBC.

Each year, the channel they’re on rotates between ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, and this year it’s NBC’s turn to host.

Who is the Emmys 2022 host?

This year’s Emmys host is yet to be confirmed, however, there are some interesting runners and riders.

Chris Rock has reportedly been approached to host. There’s also a chance Jimmy Fallon or Seth Myers could take the reigns, alternatively, there’s a chance it will be Amber Ruffin.
