The Television Academy, which puts on the Primetime Emmy Awards, has announced the key dates and deadlines (some of which began earlier this year) for the 74th Emmy Awards. Emmy nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 12, the Primetime Emmys event will air live on NBC two months later on September 12, as well as see the return of the Governors Ball immediately following the show, a return after two years since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, April 7, is the deadline for current voting members to apply for hyphenate voting status and for Associate members to apply to upgrade to Active voting membership.
The eligibility period for the 74th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be programs that aired between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022 and the deadline for submission and uploading of materials is May 12. The “Hanging episodes” rules remain in effect for any series that has a season that straddles two different eligibility periods. The Television Academy instituted several new rules to go into effect this year, including eliminating the program time length for comedy and drama series and splitting the stunt categories into two sections.
The Creative Arts Emmys will return to a two-night event, the weekend before the primetime show and air in an edited version on Saturday, September 10 that will air on FXX. The live primetime awards on Monday, September 12 is expected to return to the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles’ LA Live and will air live on NBC.
