How to Watch the 2020 Emmy Awards
The first four nights of the Creative Arts portion of the 2020 Emmy Awards will be available to stream online via Emmys.com, the TV Academy’s Facebook page, and Deadline.com. The “big” night of the Creative Arts version will air live on FXX at 8 p.m. ET.
Then the traditional 2020 Emmy Awards show that features all the categories you know and love (Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy, etc.) will air on Sunday night, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Those without cable subscriptions can stream ABC via Hulu with Live TV, fuboTV, YouTube TV, SlingTV, and more.
2020 Emmy Awards Hosts
The Emmys attempted to go hostless with their 71st iteration last year to some success. This year, however, Jimmy Kimmel will be serving as the master of ceremonies. Kimmel will also be producing the show alongside Guy Carrington, Reginald Hudlin, David Jammy, and Ian Stewart.
Nailed It! host and all-around delight Nicole Byer will be hosting all five installments of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Presenters for those five nights include: Monica Aldama (Cheer), Jeff Bridges (The Old Man), Rose Byrne (Mrs. America), Bobby Cannavale (Homecoming), Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black), Desus Nice & The Kid Mero (Desus & Mero), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Brandee Evans (P-Valley), Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead), Jerry Harris (Cheer), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Daryl Mitchell (NCIS: New Orleans), Hilarie Burton Morgan (Friday Night In With The Morgans), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead), Erin Moriarty (The Boys), Lamorne Morris (Woke), Leslie Odom Jr. (Central Park), Jeremy Pope (Hollywood), Issa Rae (Insecure), Monica Raymund (Hightown), Drew Scott (Property Brothers) and Wanda Sykes (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).
2020 Emmy Awards Format
This year’s Emmy Awards ceremony will be socially-distanced, which means that presenters and nominees will be recording their participation remotely from their homes or other locations. This will involve a staggering amount of logistical work as producers revealed that they will be sending 130 high quality cameras across the world to various participants.
Host Jimmy Kimmel will be on site at the Staples Center to do all of the traditionally host-y things. Producers also revealed that there will be a live musical performance for the In Memoriam segment.
