1. When Are the 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards?

The 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards will be broadcast on Monday, January 15, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT (which is Martin Luther King Jr. Day).

The ceremony was originally supposed to take place on September 18 at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, but it was delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The last time the Emmys were delayed was in 2001, in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

3. Who’s Hosting the Emmy Awards?

In December 2023, the Television Academy announced that Anthony Anderson will host the upcoming ceremony. The Black-ish star celebrated the exciting news in a statement, which read: “When Fox asked me to host this historic telecast, I was over the moon that Taylor Swift was unavailable, and now I can’t wait to be part of the biggest night in television.”

Much to our delight, E! will lead the coverage with Live From E! Countdown to the Emmys starting at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT. The arrivals will begin at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, so be sure to mark your calendars.

Jenna Ortega.

5. Who’s Nominated for an Emmy Award?

The 2023 Emmy Award nominations were announced back in July by Community star Yvette Nicole Brown. The list featured several expected nominees, including Abbott ElementaryThe Bear, The Last of Us, Succession, Ted Lasso and The White Lotus.

The most noteworthy category was Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, which is stacked with Hollywood stars: Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Natasha Lyonne (Poker Face) and Jenna Ortega (Wednesday). Yep, we weren’t kidding.

The list also included a few surprises, like James Marsden's nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Jury Duty. The show, which quickly developed a cult following, was also nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.

6. Who Got Snubbed?

There are way more snubs than there should be. For starters, the über-popular Paramount series Yellowstone was totally shut out, except for one nom for Production Design. Despite five highly-rated seasons and a number of successful spinoffs, the Emmys totally neglected the Western drama. And it snubbed the lead of its spinoff, 1923, Harrison Ford (who also gave a memorable performance in Shrinking this year).

Speaking of neglected stars, Selena Gomez was left off of the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series list, despite the fact that her show, Only Murders in the Building, has now been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series three times in a row (and both her fellow leads have been nominated in their respective category).

Others we were surprised to see left out included Jesse Eisenberg (Fleishman Is in Trouble), Emma D'Arcy (House of the Dragon), Matt Smith (House of the Dragon) and Dominic West (The Crown).

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's docuseries, Harry & Meghan, was completely snubbed by the Emmys, despite its high viewership numbers. Womp, womp.
