75th Emmy Awards Rescheduled to January 2024: New Date, Challenges, and Leading Nominations

The 75th Emmy Awards have officially been rescheduled, with Fox and the Television Academy jointly announcing that the event will now take place on Monday, January 15, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. This new date brings the ceremony to nearly four months later than its originally planned broadcast on September 18. The decision was made due to the potential impact of the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The ceremony's venue remains the Peacock Theater at LA Live, with Jesse Collins Entertainment taking over as the new producer of the telecast.

Recent communication with Emmy vendors confirmed the impossibility of maintaining the September date, prompting the decision for the new date announcement. The shift places the Emmy Awards in the midst of the winter awards season. This rescheduling also prompted changes to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were originally set for September 9 and 10 but have now been moved to January 6 and 7. However, this adjustment poses a potential conflict with the Golden Globe Awards, scheduled for January 7.

Despite these challenges, the TV Academy plans to proceed with Phase 2 voting for the 75th Emmys between August 17 and August 28, adhering to the previously established calendar. 

This shift to January marks a rare occurrence for the Emmys, the last such change taking place in 2001 due to the 9/11 attacks and subsequent events. The 2024 date is also the earliest in the year that the Emmys have occurred, with the very first ceremony held on January 25, 1949. Over the years, the ceremony's schedule has seen various shifts before establishing a September tradition, with some exceptions.

This year's Emmy nominations were revealed on July 12, shortly before the start of the SAG-AFTRA strike. Leading the nominations this year are HBO's "Succession" with 27 nods, followed by the video game adaptation "The Last of Us" and the drama series "The White Lotus." Apple TV+'s "Ted Lasso" dominated the comedy category, while Netflix's "Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story" garnered recognition in the limited/anthology series category. Roku's "Weird: The Al Yankovic Story" stood out in the TV movie category, and "RuPaul's Drag Race" shined as the top unscripted series with seven nominations.
