This year’s ceremony will take place Sunday, September 20 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles and will air live coast-to-coast on ABC beginning at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. As of yet, there is no host in place to preside over TV’s biggest night of the year. Perhaps the TV academy will follow the lead of their motion picture counterparts and opt for a more streamlined ceremony without an emcee. ET and be available on the Emmys website, Facebook and YouTube. Laverne Cox, Tatiana Maslany, Josh Gad and Television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma will also present the nominations.
And this year, TV industry members may have been more diligent about searching out potential nominees they might have overlooked. That includes the inclusive comedies “Ramy,” from Muslim American creator Ramy Youssef, and “Insecure” from Black writer-actor Issa Rae.
Top drama series contenders include newcomer Apple TV’s drama series “The Morning Show” and its lead actresses Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Likely to face them: past winners “The Crown” (Netflix) and “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu), and their respective stars Olivia Colman and Elisabeth Moss, who is seeking to repeat her 2017 best-actress win.
Newcomers like Zendaya, star of HBO’s teenage drama “Euphoria,” are brought into the Emmy fold.
Among limited series, the graphic-novel inspired HBO’s “Watchmen,” with a diverse cast led by Regina King and a dystopian theme that jibes with the zeitgeist, is a front-runner. FX’s “Mrs. America” and Netflix’s “Unbelievable” are among other top contenders.
