After the 2020 Emmys ceremony went virtual this year due to COVID-19, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic will still be felt when the 2021 Emmys come around next fall. The Television Academy has instituted some rule changes for next year’s awards, and along with some standard housekeeping and restructuring, they’ve changed the rules for consideration for TV movies since so many movies intended for theaters ended up being released on television instead. Plus, they’ve also added a category for stunt performers. You can find out about this and all the recent 2021 Emmys rules changes below. Read More »

2020 Creative Arts Emmys Winners

Now that Game of Thrones is over, a new nerdy TV show had to step up to snag some awards love from the Emmys. But this year, there are two geek friendly shows that have been showered with accolades in two different categories. HBO’s Watchmen landed 26 nominations as a miniseries/limited series and Disney+’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian had an impressive Emmys debut with 15 total nominations. Now both of the shows are already winners.

Leading up to the primary Emmys awards broadcast on ABC this Sunday, which will be a virtual ceremony, the Creative Arts Emmys are unfolding across five nights this week online, awarding the less glamorous (but no less important) technical awards. So it should come as no surprise that The Mandalorian took home five awards, and Watchmen was close behind with four trophies. Plus, Star Trek: Picard and Stranger Things were each able to snag a win. Read More »

Who’s ready to watch their favorite TV actors and creatives give virtual acceptance speeches?

The 2020 Emmys will officially be a remote awards show, kicking off what will almost positively be a bizarre and straight up weird awards season as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The show, which is being hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, sent out letters to the recent Emmy nominees informing them that no, they don’t have to worry about showing up to an event in person this year. Instead, according to the letter, the virtual show’s “informal theme for the night is ‘come as you are, but make an effort!'” But thankfully, it sounds like the producers are taking steps to make sure the ceremony doesn’t look like just another average Zoom call.
