The rumors are true!
As the pandemic rages on, the Emmys have decided to go virtual.
After the nominations were announced by Leslie Jones, the Emmys executive producers, including host Jimmy Kimmel, sent a letter telling the acting nominees that the ceremony will be virtual this year.
The letter says, “As you’ve probably guessed, we’re not going to be asking you to come to the Microsoft Theatre in downtown LA on September 20th...This year, it’s still going to be TV industry’s biggest night out… but we’ll come to you!”
It continues, “We are assembling a top notch team of technicians, producers and writers to work closely with Jimmy Kimmel and with you and your team, to make sure that we can film with you (and loved ones or whomever else you choose to be with) at your home, or another location of your choice. We’re going to make you look fabulous – we’re exploring the cutting edge of technology to allow to use good cameras and lighting and look forward to working with you to produce your unique ‘on screen” moments.’”
Specific details about the awards ceremony are still being worked out—including which elements will be live and if winners will be informed of their victory before the show.
While the Emmys will certainly be different this year, we can still look forward to a night dedication to our favorite shows.
