Settle in for another jam-packed Primetime Emmy telecast on Sept. 22. The Television Academy has announced the awards to be presented on camera during this year’s live ceremony, and the number of categories clocks in at 27.

That’s believed to be more than any other major TV awards telecast, and has been the subject of debate over the years. When the four major broadcast networks renegotiated a new “wheel deal” last November to continue sharing rights to air the Emmys, it was understood that there would be some discussion on how to streamline the number of awards handed out during the main telecast.

This year, at least, the number of awards showcased on camera won’t change. And with it looking more likely that this year’s Emmy ceremony won’t have a host, there will at least be more time during the show to hand out all 27 awards.

The Creative Arts ceremonies will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 5 p.m. PT and Sunday, Sept. 15, at 5 p.m. PT at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and will be produced by Bob Bain and Bob Bain Productions. An edited-down version of both shows will air on Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on FXX.

Creative Arts Saturday awards will focus on categories including reality, variety special, documentaries, animated program and short-form animation, choreography for variety or reality programs, and interactive programs. Creative Arts Sunday will include awards for short-form drama and comedy series, casting, cinematography and guest performers in comedy and drama series.

The 71st Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, Sept. 22, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Fox. Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted are co-producing the broadcast.

Awards presented at the 71st Emmy telecast include outstanding comedy, drama, limited series, TV movie and variety talk and sketch series, along with outstanding acting, directing and writing awards in these categories.

Here’s the complete list of which categories will be handed out at each ceremony.
