2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards becomes a five-night affair, mixing virtual and live events

The Television Academy announced today its plans for the Creative Arts Emmys, which recognize the lion’s share of behind the scenes Emmy-nominated work each year. Normally a two-night series of live, in person ceremonies the weekend before the Primetime Emmy Awards, this year will be a five-night series of virtual and live events.
