When and where are the 2023 Emmys? Why was the awards ceremony postponed?
We should have been gearing up for the glitzy occasion this month, but will have to wait a little longer before we watch the winners unveiled.
The lights, the cameras, and the fancy evening wear. As September arrived we had expected to be rolling out the red carpet for the big names of the small screen, as the world of television recognised its talent in the 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards. But those little statuettes, as well as the various emotional speeches, have got some extra time to be polished this year with the prestigious event having faced some challenges this year. The star-studded list of nominees will remain on ice as the realignment of the stars is complete, and we now know when that will be.
When are the 2023 Emmy Awards?
Initially scheduled for 18 September 2023, -- the usual idea being for it to air on the Sunday before the official start of the fall television season -- television enthusiasts will now to wait a little longer due to the much publicised WGA (Writers Guild of America) and SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) strikes. The ceremony is now set to take place on Monday 15 January 2024, airing at 8 pm ET. So, just the 119 extra days to wait.
Some people have suggested that this rescheduling may have consequences for the event’s atmosphere, with other ceremonies, such as the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, having a more time-relevant focus. To qualify for consideration at the 2023 Emmys, a program must have aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023. You can see how this may test those of us with memory issues when we get to January.
Where are the 2023 Emmys and who is the host?
This year, the Emmy Awards ceremony will be held at the impressive Peacock Theater at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles. We don’t yet know who will be following on the back of recent hosts Kenan Thompson, Cedric the Entertainer and Jimmy Kimmel but will bring you that news when it’s announced.
Have the Emmys ever been delayed before?
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time the Emmys have been rescheduled. Coincidentally, given that I’m writing this on 11 September, the last time was in 2001, following the 9/11 attacks and the onset of the war in Afghanistan. In that instance, the ceremony took place two months later in November.
Who are the big Emmy nominees in 2023?
The 2023 Emmy nominations are in, and it’s clear that certain shows have stolen the spotlight. Leading the pack is the explosive final season of “Succession” with a staggering 27 nominations.

Tim Burton’s darkly whimsical series, “Wednesday,” received 12 nominations, and the dark comedy “Barry” is just one behind with 11. Fans of the clever “Only Murders in the Building,” will be unsurprised to see it also secure 11 nominations.
What channel is showing the 2023 Emmys?
For those eager to witness the glamour and drama of the 2023 Emmys, Fox is the channel to tune into. As the official broadcaster, Fox will bring the ceremony to viewers’ screens, allowing us to revel in the magic and talent.
Unfortunately you’ll just have to wait till after the New Year celebrations die down to see it, but we’ll be there with you on 15 January 2024.
