The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will honor the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2018 until May 31, 2019, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The ceremony will be held on September 22, 2019, at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and will be broadcast in the U.S. by Fox; it was preceded by the 71st Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on September 14 and 15.[1]

The show will not have a host for the fourth time in its history, following the telecasts in 2003 (when the awards show also aired on Fox), 1998 (on NBC), and 1975 (on CBS).[2]

The nominations were announced by D'Arcy Carden and Ken Jeong on July 16, 2019.[3] Game of Thrones led the nominations with fourteen, including nine for acting and three for directing, followed by When They See Us with eleven and Barry with nine. Including its nominations at the Creative Arts Awards, Game of Thrones established a new record for most Emmy nominations received in the same year by any comedy or drama series with 32, breaking the 25 years long record previously held by NYPD Blue, which had scored 26 nominations for its first season in 1994.[4][5] Pop TV received its first Primetime Emmy nominations with Schitt's Creek.[6]

Ceremony information

Production

On April 9, 2019, it was announced that American Horror Story: Apocalypse, the eighth season of the horror anthology series American Horror Story, and the second season of The Sinner would be ineligible for the Limited Series categories unlike their previous seasons, and instead be moved to Drama due to "continuing story threads, characters and actors reprising those same character roles from previous seasons", therefore making the series less fit for an anthology format. For similar reasons, the second season of American Vandal was moved from Limited Series to Comedy.[9][10][11]
