The 2nd Annual Emmy Awards, retroactively known as the 2nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards after the debut of the Daytime Emmys, were presented at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California on January 27, 1950. Like the 1st Primetime Emmy Awards, Emmys were primarily given out to Los Angeles-based TV shows and stations.

Several new award categories were introduced, including "Best Sports Coverage". However, it would be a few decades later until that category would become a permanent fixture in the Sports Emmys.
