It’s been another year we possibly could not have gotten through without television. From WandaVision to Bridgerton to The Queen’s Gambit, so much of what we saw on the silver screen is cause to celebrate— and what better way than to tune into the Emmys on Sept. 19?
After a mostly virtual ceremony last year, the 73rd Emmy Awards return with a live audience and red carpet, albeit one that is a bit more scaled back. Instead of gathering in the usual Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, TV’s finest talent will gather right outside at the L.A. Live deck with a limited number of nominees in the crowd. Beginning at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET, Cedric the Entertainer will host.
The ceremony will air live coast-to-coast on CBS and its streamer affiliate Paramount Plus. And let’s be real: the red carpet fashion is practically just as important as who takes home an Emmy. E! has a whole night of programming planned. It’s “Countdown to the Red Carpet” begins at 1:30 p.m. PT/ 4:30 ET, with its live show kicking off at 3 p.m. PT/ 6 p.m. ET. The entertainment network’s “After Party” follows the end of the primetime ceremony at 8 p.m. PT/ 11 p.m. ET. You can also catch Entertainment Tonight’s coverage at 4:30 p.m. PT/ 7:30 p.m. ET for pre-show interviews with nominees and then its after-show broadcast immediately after the ceremony.
You can also stream the Emmys through various on-demand platforms. If you have the likes of an Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV stick or another way to gain online access on your device of choice, you can watch on FuboTV, Hulu Live, Sling or YouTube TV.
It’s no surprise if you opt to stream the ceremony. Afterall, the Emmys were dominated by series from streaming platforms. Netflix alone has 129 nominations from shows like The Crown, Emily in Paris and The Kominsky Method, among others. HBO Max just topped that with 130 nominations. It had some of the year’s buzziest television, including Mare of Easttown, I May Destroy You, Hacks and The Flight Attendant. All eyes will also be on how well Apple TV Plus does, given the much-beloved Ted Lasso racked up 20 of its 35 nominations.
