American award season is a celebration for celebrities and fans of every genre of music, film, and television.

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be televised at 8 PM (Eastern Time) in the United States on CBS and Paramount +. The Emmy Awards come just after the VMA’s and the delayed 2021 Met Gala.

The Emmy Awards differ greatly from the Oscars as the Oscars recognize cinema and the film industry. The Oscars are considered one of the most prestigious award shows in the world, and they are presented each year by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The Emmy Awards are also highly acclaimed, but the awards are distributed to distinguished individuals, shows, and series in the television industry. The awards are provided by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The National Active which makes up a group of people that are widely considered experts in their field vote on both the nominees and the winners.

In recent years and according to data from Nielsen, the Grammy Awards and the Academy Awards have had more viewers. The data also suggests that overall viewership for award shows has declined in recent years, and specifically in 2020.

The Emmy Awards are made up of the Primetime Emmys, Sports Emmys, and Daytime Emmys, depending on the type of television. The Primetime Emmys are then divided into three section: the regular Primetime Emmy Awards, the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards and the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards. This differs from the Oscars, which had 24 categories in 2020.
