The Road to the Emmys
Start dusting off those designer gowns and tuxedos because the 2023-24 award season is upon us! And the curtain-raiser to this glitzy time of year is none other than the prestigious Emmy Awards.
Honoring the very best in prime-time television, the Emmys have become a fixture on the entertainment calendar. But just what do you need to know about the upcoming ceremony? Well, firstly, it looks set to take place in September. That’s still up in the air, though, as the Hollywood calendar continues to recover from the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Who’s in the Running?
While specific nominees are announced months before each Emmy Awards show, in the run-up we can always predict the usual mix of familiar faces and breakout stars in the TV world. Surely, the best new dramas and comedies will be vying for the top prizes. Keep an eye out for a host of TV movie and limited-series actors, too.
Secondly, you may want to know where you can catch all the action. As in previous years, the Emmy Awards will be broadcast live on a major network, and you can always watch a livestream if you prefer an online viewing experience. And don’t forget the Emmy news conferences in July that reveal the year’s nominations. Keep your eyes peeled for coverage on entertainment news channels and websites.
The Red Carpet to the Oscars
Next on the awards season calendar, we have the most glamorous night in Hollywood, the Academy Awards – or as they’re more commonly known, the Oscars. The Oscars are the most prestigious awards in the film industry, celebrating the best cinematic achievements of the year.
The Nominations and the Ceremony
As we look forward to the 2024 Oscars, expect the nominations to be announced in January, giving us plenty of time to debate and discuss the potential winners. The ceremony generally happens in late February or early March, although, once again, the date is still to be confirmed.
So, who are likely candidates for Oscar glory in 2024? Predicting Oscar winners is more art than science, but look for buzz about performances in the year’s best films to gauge who might be up for the night’s major awards. And, while you’re at it, don’t forget about the behind-the-scenes talent in categories like Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Screenplay.
The 2023-24 awards season is not only about the Emmys and the Oscars, of course. There will also be plenty of excitement surrounding other high-profile award events like the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, and the Grammys, among others. Each of these events has its own timetable and traditions, and each fills its own unique place in the entertainment industry landscape.
In conclusion, your social calendar and your TV viewing schedule are sure to be packed in the coming year! Whether you’re a casual viewer or a die-hard fan, award season provides a unique opportunity to wrap yourself up in the glamour and excitement of Hollywood. So, buckle up and get ready – the 2023-24 awards season is just around the corner!
