The 50th annual Emmy Awards ceremony is the last televised ceremony to be postponed due to the writers’ strike in the United States. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which organizes the annual event, announced Tuesday that the ceremony — originally scheduled for June 16 — would be postponed.
“We look forward to our community coming together as one to celebrate our golden anniversary and all the talented and outstanding nominees at a later date,” the organization said in a statement.
The Creative Arts and Lifestyle Ceremony, scheduled for June 17, will also be delayed until a strike with the Screenwriters Guild of America is resolved.
On Monday, the WGA announced that it does not plan to host the June 11 Tony Awards. The move could allow the Broadway-focused evening to continue with changing programs that “accommodate specific requests from the WGA.”
