Lauren Graham, Anthony Anderson to Announce Emmy Nominations
For the second year in a row, the nominations will be unveiled at 8:30 a.m. PT. and 11:30 a.m. ET.
The Television Academy is sticking to its revised timetable.
For the second year in a row, the primetime Emmy nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 14 at 11:30 a.m. ET and 8:30 a.m. PT, it revealed on Tuesday.
Recent Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham will team up to announce this year's nominations from the Wolf Theatre at the Academy's newly opened Saban Media Center.
"Television is enjoying the most spectacular run in its history with breakthrough creativity, emerging platforms and dynamic new opportunities for our industry's storytellers," Television Academy chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum said. "We are thrilled to have Anthony and Lauren on board to help kick off what promises to be an extraordinary Emmy season."
Emmy nominations were previously announced three hours earlier, at 5:30 a.m. on the West Coast, where the nominees are normally announced and where the ceremony usually takes place. After years of complaints, the Television Academy adjusted the timing of the nominees announcement last year.
Veteran awards show producer Bob Bain has been tapped to produce the nominations ceremony as well as this year's Creative Arts Awards and Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards. Don Mischer is producing this year's primetime Emmys, which will air on Sunday, Sept. 18 on ABC and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
