A day after announcing nominations for the Emmy Awards, the Television Academy informed top nominees on Wednesday that the ceremony in September will take place online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement was expected due to restrictions and blockades imposed since the virus outbreak that has wreaked havoc with the entertainment industry.

The Emmy, the television equivalent of the Oscars, will take place on September 20 and will be the first major awards show in Hollywood since the coronavirus crisis began.

Nightly talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is ready to host the festivities broadcast on ABC.

In the letter sent to the selected nominees, the content of which was confirmed to AFP by an Academy spokesperson, the organizers said they were forced to make the difficult decision to conduct the ceremony online under the circumstances.

“In addition to NOT being able to come together in one place, we also recognize that our world is going through a challenging time in many ways,” according to the letter signed by the event’s producers and Kimmel.

“We will produce an event full of warmth and humanity, which celebrates the power of television to unite and help us shape our world,” they wrote.

The letter said the organizers would work closely with the nominees, filming them at home and elsewhere, to make sure they stand out on the big night.

“We are going to make it look fabulous: we are exploring the latest technology to enable us to use good cameras and lighting and look forward to working with you to produce your unique ‘on-screen’ moments,” the letter added. .

As for the dress code, the letter said that given the informal theme of the ceremony, the nominees could decide what to wear.

“If you want to wear formal wear, we’d love to, but still if you’re in the UK and it’s 3 a.m., you might want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed!” Read the letter.

“We want to work with you to design your moments, but we want you to guide us in your comfort levels: where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear, etc.”
