Jimmy Kimmel will host the very first significant Hollywood awards ceremony of the coronavirus pandemic — but just how the Emmy Awards will be held continues to be cloudy.
Kimmel, who is also creating the Sept. 20 ceremony on ABC honouring TV’s most effective, acknowledged that in Tuesday’s announcement.
“I do not know where we will do this or how we will do this or even why we are accomplishing this, but we are accomplishing it and I am web hosting it,” the ABC late-night host explained in a statement.
The network said specifics on the show’s generation will be introduced quickly.
Picking Kimmel to emcee the ceremony reverses course from very last year’s no-host Emmys.
The amusement market is just beginning to restart production next a months-lengthy shutdown aimed at curtailing the spread of COVID-19.
Orchestrating an awards ceremony for the duration of the ongoing pandemic with its group of presenters, nominees and guests is a overwhelming prospect, irrespective of whether done pretty much or otherwise.
Though the Emmys are plunging ahead as scheduled, other ceremonies are bowing to the pandemic’s pressures. The 93rd Academy Awards will be held April 25, 2021, 8 weeks afterwards than prepared, and the British Academy Film Awards is shifting its originally introduced February 2021 ceremony to April 11.
Nominations for the 72nd primary-time Emmys will be declared by the Television set academy on July 28.
