On Friday (March 27), the TV academy confirmed that the 2020 Emmys will still take place on September 20 (with the Creative Arts ceremonies set for the preceding weekend of Sept. 12/13). However, while the eligibility period still ends May 31, the nominations calendar has been revised as follows:
June 5: Entry deadline
July 2: Nominations-round voting begins (had been June 15)
July 13: Nominations-round voting ends (had been June 29)
July 28: Nominations announced (had been July 14)
August 21: Final-round voting begins (had been August 17)
August 31: Final-round voting ends (same)
In addition, the TV academy extended the eligibility date for “hanging episodes” to June 30 (formerly mid-June for seasons that ended after the May 31 cutoff date).
And it confirmed that all TV academy “For Your Consideration” events — whether with a live audience, streaming or recorded for posting on a viewing platform — have been suspended for this Emmy season due to the impact of the coronavirus.
