Emmy's 2024: Stars walk 'silver carpet' as event gets underway

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards aired on Monday (15 January) following a four-month delay, with the best talent in television gathering in Los Angeles for a shimmering ceremony.

The annual celebration of the year’s most brilliant TV shows took place half a year after nominations were announced back in July.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for September but was pushed back due to the Hollywood writer and actor strikes that brought the industry to a standstill last year. As such, these awards honoured shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, meaning it felt a bit like deja vu.

The show with the most nominations was Succession, the fourth and final season of which aired on HBO last year. The drama took home six awards. Fellow HBO dramas The Last of Us and The White Lotus were also heavily nominated, but failed to compete in terms of wins on the night.

Netflix’s limited series Beef and Hulu’s comedy The Bear also saw a raft of big wins at the ceremony.

You can find a full list of all the winners here.


When is the last time that the Emmy awards show was postponed?

This event’s delay is the first time the Emmys have been postponed since 2001, when the 9/11 attacks came just five days before the planned ceremony. That ceremony would end up being held in November.

What is weird about this year’s Emmy award-winners?

In another anomaly, by the time of the ceremony, all the winners will have been established, the metaphorical envelopes sitting unopened for more than four months. That’s because the Television Academy wanted at least the voting to be the same as always, so its approximately 20,000 members had to cast their ballots by 28 August.

What has controversial choice Anthony Anderson said about hosting the Emmy’s?

“It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do…” the 53-year-old Black-ish star told Entertainment Tonight recently. “I wanted it to happen years ago, but everything happens when it’s supposed to happen.”

Who’s hosting the Emmys?

Hosted for the first time by Black-ish star Anthony Anderson, the 2024 Emmy Awards will celebrate the best television shows that aired between 1 June 2022, and 31 May 2023.

Anderson, who was nominated for lead actor in a comedy seven times for his work on ABC’s Black-ish, is a first-time Emmys host, although he’s hosted the NAACP Image Awards eight times.

He’ll also have a fresh connection to Fox by the time he takes the Emmys stage – his new show We Are Family is set to debut in early January.

However, his chequered past, which includes multiple sexual assault allegations that Anderson has vigorously denied, has sparked a growing backlash to his casting as host.

Did the delay affect the voting process?

In many ways, no. The Television Academy, which runs the Emmys, wanted to maintain the same voting processes, even if there was no concrete idea of when the ceremony could go ahead.

As a result, the 20,000-strong membership of the Academy had to cast their ballots by 28 August as usual – meaning that the winners were decided months ago, regardless of how conversations around projects may have fluctuated.

Since the nominations were announced back in July, this also means an additional delay to what seasons and projects are in contention. The Bear, for example, which has now run for two seasons, has 13 nominations, but all for its first season, which was released on Hulu in June 2022.

By the time of the ceremony, season two of the hectic drama-comedy will have been out for nearly seven months.

The White Lotus creator Mike White teases ‘supersized’ season 3

The White Lotus has received 24 Emmy nominations this year, including Best Drama Series as well as a slew of acting categories.

The show’s creator Mike White gave fans a taste of what to expect from the show’s highly-anticipated third season in an interview last November.

“It’s going to be a supersized White Lotus,” White promised. “It’s going to be longer, bigger, crazier. I don’t know what people will think, but I am super excited, so at least for my own barometer, that’s a good thing ... I’m super excited about the content of the season.”

The cast for season three was announced earlier this month, with The White Lotus travelling to Thailand for its latest instalment.
