The 73rd Emmys are officially on for 2021, but this time, they’ll be aired on CBS and its new streaming platform/service Paramount+.

This award show is strictly for the television industry and emerging media including three categories, Television Academy (primetime), National Academy of Television Arts and Science (daytime, sports, news and documentary) and International Academy of Television Arts and Science (international). The September show will be for the primetime awards. 

CBS and the Television Academy announced on Tuesday that this year’s Emmys will be hosted live on Sunday, Sept. 19 from 8:00-11:00 p.m. ET  and from 5:00-8:00 p.m. PT. Paramount+ launches March 4, so those who are interested in watching the award show on the platform have plenty of time to purchase a subscription. 

While details about how the pandemic will affect this year’s show haven't been announced yet, it’s thought to be similar to last year’s mostly virtual show. Jimmy Kimmel was present at the Staples Center in Los Angeles while the award presenters, nominees and winners were remote and appeared virtually, according to Fox News.

The Golden Globes was the first large award show to air in 2021 and it was also virtual. Tina Fey and Amy Pohler hosted the show from Los Angeles and New York while the winners appeared remotely to accept their awards.

"Schitt's Creek" made history at the 2020 Emmy Awards for being nominated for 15 categories and taking home the win for nine of them including Oustanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Casting For a Comedy Series, Outstanding Contemporary Costumes and Outstanding Directing For a Comedy Series. The series ended in 2020. 

Other award shows the Television Academy hosts are the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the Engineering Emmy Awards, the Television Academy Hall of Fame, the Television Academy Honors and the Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards.
