Williams is the favorite to win in Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, an honor his nephew will accept posthumously was Williams to win. Here’s more to know about the Emmys In Memoriam segment.

Will there be an Emmys 2021?

Yes. Not that anyone should be surprised. Even last year, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Television Academy and ABC put on an Emmy Awards broadcast with Jimmy Kimmel as the host that mixed in-person segments with virtual attendees. This year, the Television Academy and CBS have made plans to host the bulk of the event outdoors.

Rather than take place inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where the 2021 Emmys had been scheduled to occur, Emmy Awards are set to happen at Event Deck at L.A. Live which sits directly behind the Microsoft Theater. The venue change affects not just the main Emmy Awards, which occur on September 19, but the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony the weekend prior. The Event Deck at L.A. Live and its proximity to the Microsoft Theater will allow Emmy organizers to mix-and-match indoor and outdoor festivities and provide ample space to socially distance attendees. In addition to those changes, limits on attendees among nominees were previously announced.

Who won the Emmy Awards 2021?

Great question. Thanks to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, a whooping 93 categories have already been declared as 2021 Emmy winners. Here’s the full list of Emmy winners heading into the ceremony — with “The Queen’s Gambit” leading the way with nine total wins.
