About The Primetime Emmys: Nominations for this year, the 70th Primetime Emmys were announced on July 12, and now the race is on for the candidates to get that perfect gown, the tux, and get their personal staff and industry representatives on the same page. As countless publicists, personal managers, fashion designers, and planners are helping the celebrities and nominees to coordinate for the night, many people related to the production of the TV show are working hard, behind-the-scenes to deliver the very best telecast which this year takes place on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, at 5:00 pm (PT), on NBC.
The Emmys are handed out by the Television Academy which was formed in 1946 by Syd Cassyd to help industry professionals develop and improve the art and science of Television. The first president of the TV academy was Edgar Bergen.
To be nominated, a program, an achievement, or a performer must be submitted, to be considered. Eligible members can also submit their own work or themselves. From there, the qualified voters select exemplary work they think should receive attention and be awarded. The 23,000+ voters vote on 16 separate categories such as Drama series, comedy series, Limited series, TV movie, Variety Talk shows, and more. Performers (specific peer groups) can vote for a lead actor, lead actress, supporting actor and/or actress, and guest actors/actress. This year the TV academy has received over 9100 entries in 122 categories. Nowadays there are over 23,000 voting members in the academy. This year’s Emmys will be hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost.
The 70th Primetime Emmys airs Live, on September 17, at 5:00 pm (PT) on NBC.
