Emmy Awards 2020 Voting Pushed Back, 'For Your Consideration' Events Suspended Amid Pandemic

The 2020 Emmy Awards are already being shifted around due to the global health crisis.

The first round of voting has been moved from June 15 to July 2, and eligible episodes can now air through the end of June, THR reported Friday (March 27).

The TV Academy leaders met remotely on Thursday night (March 26) to discuss the show’s changed schedule, which had not yet been affected until now due to the pandemic.

The date for the actual Primetime Emmys is not changed, but the “For Your Consideration” events are suspended.

“Though it is something of a no-brainer at this point, the TV Academy is taking a firm stance on FYC events, suspending them for this season whether with ‘a live audience, streaming or recorded for posting on a viewing platform,’” THR reported.

“There is entire economy built around Emmy campaigning, and it’s only become more robust as the number of series and platforms has skyrocketed in recent years. Cutting through the noise means hosting panels, sending mailers, stunts and expensive outdoor, print, radio and TV advertising, each an expensive endeavor that requires significant planning. Considering the new constraints, strategists will likely have to take dramatic new approaches,” they went on to report.

Many events are being postponed or canceled amid the crisis. Find out what else…
