75th Emmy Awards

From Morning Report, 7:57 am on 16 January 2024

The Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced this afternoon, with HBO's Succession set to dominate with a whopping 27 nominations.

The awards were initially scheduled for September, but months of strikes by Hollywood writers and actors meant the ceremony had to be pushed into the new year.

Members of the Writers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild walk a picket line outside of Warner Bros Studio in Burbank, California, on July 26, 2023. Tens of thousands of Hollywood actors went on strike at midnight July 14, 2023, effectively bringing the giant movie and television business to a halt as they join writers in the first industry-wide walkout for 63 years.
