The 73rd annual ceremony will air on September 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS and Paramount+, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The Television Academy will be recognizing programs that aired between June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021. Unfortunately, some fan favorites — and former Emmy winners — are disqualified from the 73rd ceremony due to halted productions. This past year, the entertainment industry cut production in half in major production locations (New York City and Los Angeles) on account of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Television Academy announced on Monday that the second COVID-19 ceremony will host “a limited audience of nominees and their guests.”

ViacomCBS, CBS’s parent company, also announced that the network recruited from within the family, with Cedric the Entertainer as the host for the September 19 ceremony. Cedric stars in “The Neighborhood,” which airs Mondays on CBS and the fourth season is anticipated to premiere the Monday following the ceremony to kick off the network’s fall TV lineup.
