The show must continue! Fox confirmed on Thursday that the 75th annual Emmy Awards are scheduled to air on Monday, January 15, 2024, after previously being postponed due to ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
According to the press release, the Emmys will not be broadcast live, but will instead be shot over two consecutive nights — Saturday, January 6, and Sunday, January 7, 2024 — before airing on January 15, 2024.
TV’s biggest night will commemorate the amazing performers, writers, directors, and craftspeople whose work has amused, inspired, and united audiences across the world over the previous year at the Peacock Theater at LA Live in Los Angeles, California.
It was reported last month that the Emmys would no longer be held on Monday, September 18, as originally planned. The 2023 Emmy nominations were revealed by Television Academy Chair Frank Scherma and Yvette Nicole Brown two days before the SAG-AFTRA strike began. Nominations for shows such as Succession, Abbott Elementary, and Ted Lasso were many.
After failing to reach an agreement with major Hollywood studios and streamers by the July 12 deadline, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), which represent over 160,000 film and television actors, went on strike on July 14.

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) went on strike in May after failing to reach a deal with major Hollywood studios on appropriate compensation, especially given the rise of streaming services since the last big contract battle in 2007. The union was fighting for more financing for writers’ rooms and DVD residuals at the time.
This is the first time since 1960 that both unions have been on strike at the same time. You must follow us on Leedaily.com to receive more information about your favorite singer, and songwriter nominations, and winners of Emmy Awards.
