The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are happening tonight! Television's biggest night will opt for a virtual ceremony this year, as opposed to its usual star-studded red carpet affair, but TV's best and brightest will still be honored in an event hosted by late-night host and awards show veteran Jimmy Kimmel, who is also executive producing the show, along with Guy Carrington, Reginald Hudlin, David Jammy and Ian Stewart.
When are the Emmys?: The show will air live coast-to-coast on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on ABC, which is available to cable subscribers, or to stream on Hulu with Live TV as well as fuboTV.
How Can I Watch ET's Coverage of the Emmys?:
ET will be covering all the biggest moments of the Emmy Awards through the show. Then, ET Live's Emmys after-show starts immediately following the 2020 Emmy Awards. ET's Denny Directo, Leanne Aguilera and Marisa Runyon will be joined by Variety's Angelique Jackson to discuss the winners, the fashion, the biggest moments and how the full-scale awards show was pulled off during the coronavirus pandemic.
You can watch ET's pre-coverage of the Emmys right here on ET Live and ETonline.com, where we'll have exclusive interviews with the stars, behind-the-scenes scoop and up-to-the-minute updates on all of the night's biggest moments.
Additionally, Billy Porter (Pose), Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) and Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) all notched acting nods of their own. Additionally, prolific filmmaker Tyler Perry is set to be honored with the Governors Award.
When are the Creative Arts Emmys and how to watch them: This year, the virtual Creative Arts Emmys will be awarded over 4 nights broken into categories, from Sept. 14-17, streaming on Emmys.com. Additionally, a fifth, live ceremony, will take place on Saturday, Sept. 19, and air on FXX at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
The breakdown of nights will be as follows:
Monday, Sept. 14: Reality and Nonfiction Tuesday, Sept. 15: Variety Wednesday, Sept. 16: Scripted (night one) Thursday, Sept. 17: Scripted (night two) Saturday, Sept: 19: The live ceremony featuring a multi-genre mix of awards.
How will this year's show be different? On Aug. 24, the Emmy producers detailed their ambitious plans for this year's show to Variety. The main change is venue -- Kimmel will host the telecast from Staples Center as opposed to the usual Microsoft Theatre, which allows for more room to safely produce the show.
Beyond that, there will be no red carpet and no live audience at Staples. Instead, the Emmys plan to have professional cameras in as many as 140 locations so that all the nominees may be included live in the show as opposed to via a video conferencing app.
