The 2022 Emmys have finally arrived — a night to celebrate the most talked about, written about and tweeted about shows of the year. This year, HBO’s “Succession” and Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” earned the most nominations of the year (25 and 20 nods, respectively), while Netflix’s “Squid Game” has already made history as the first non-English language series to compete in the best drama category.
Other notable nominees include “The White Lotus,” which will likely dominate the limited series categories, and ABC’s freshman sitcom “Abbott Elementary,” whose anticipated success tonight will be notable as one of the few network shows being honored at the Emmys.
Kenan Thompson, the longest-tenured cast member on “Saturday Night Live,” will make his hosting debut this year.
Ahead, check out everything you need to know about this year’s ceremony to enjoy all the entertainment from the comfort of your couch.
When are the 2022 Emmys?
The 2022 Emmy Awards will take place on Monday, Sept. 12, airing live at 5 p.m. PT on NBC. The ceremony was moved from Sunday to Monday night because of Sunday Night Football.
Will there be an Emmys red carpet?
The Live from E! Countdown begins at 2 p.m. PT, with the official red carpet coverage hosted by Laverne Cox kicking off at 3 p.m. PT. NBC will not be hosting any pre-show coverage, instead opting to air “NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt” and “Access Hollywood” during their usual time slots before the Emmys begin. Variety’s Marc Malkin will be interviewing talent before the ceremony kicks off for Variety On the Carpet presented by DIRECTV. Video from the interviews will be available on Variety‘s Twitter and Variety.com.
How can I watch the 2022 Emmys Online?
The Emmys will air live on NBC but cord-cutters can access the full livestream on Peacock, the network’s streaming platform. A year-long subscription to Peacock Premium is currently only $1.99/month, 60% cheaper than its normal price. Through Premium Plus, which costs $9.99/month, you can access the same live content as Premium but with no ads and with the ability to download shows and movies to watch offline.
