The 75th edition of Emmy Awards is all set to air live on January 15, 2024 at Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles
Succession, The Crown
The Emmy Awards honour the best TV shows and actors in the US and across other countries. There are lots of different Emmy ceremonies throughout the year, each with its own awards for different kinds of shows. The two most famous ones are the Primetime Emmys for night-time TV shows, and the Daytime Emmys for shows that air during the day. Emmy Awards are like the Oscars for television.
The 75th Emmy Awards ceremony was originally scheduled for September 18, but was postponed due to the SAG-AFTRA strike last year. Especially for action by both actors and writers. Hence, now the 75th edition will premiere on January 15, 2024 at Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles.
But before you witness the winners of Emmy Awards, we have curated a list of five shows that have achieved the nominations this year, to make your weekend exciting.
The Last of Us
A bad guy with a dark past, known for getting things done under the table, has to take a young teen through a world in ruins. He is not used to babysitting, but he has got a helper (a kid learning the ropes), and they gotta make it through without anyone getting hurt. Pedro Pascal plays the role of the bad guy Joel Miller. Before Pascal, the role was offered to Interstellar-famed Matthew McConaughey. The show grabbed three nominations for Golden Globes this year.
