An Emmy is an American award that recognizes excellence in the Television industry and is presented at multiple annual events held throughout the calendar year. It was first given in the year 1949, almost 71 years ago.

The Television industry is still reeling from the global Covid-19 pandemic. However good days can be expected as this year’s ceremony of The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on September 20th, Sunday. The show will be aired on ABC network and is set to be hosted by the favorite Jimmy Kimmel.  The network shared a post with Jimmy Kimmel on their social media stating to save the date!

The list of this year’s Emmy nominations was announced on Tuesday on Emmy.com at 8:30 AM PT. The Emmy’s official Instagram announced the news by saying that “They’re finally here!”
