66th Primetime Emmy Awards
|66th Primetime Emmy Awards|
Los Angeles, California
The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, honoring the best in primetime television programming from June 1, 2013 until May 31, 2014, will be held on August 25, 2014 at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California. The ceremony will be held one month earlier than usual, and on a Monday instead of the usual Sunday, because of American broadcaster NBC's contractual obligations to televise Sunday Night Football. That Monday date also avoids a conflict with the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which was already scheduled for that weekend.
The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced that they will implement online voting for its members to select the nominees. Winners for this year will still be voted on via paper ballots; online voting to determine the winners will not be used until 2015.
