How to watch the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards


The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will return to the Microsoft Theater on Sunday to celebrate TV’s best of the year.

The annual event will have a limited in-person audience consisting of nominees and their guests. It’s a change from last year’s show, which was partially virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, all participants will be asked to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, the Television Academy said.

Actor and comedian Cedric the Animator will host the show in downtown Los Angeles, making him the second black solo host in the event’s history.

“Television is one of the things that got us through this whole pandemic,” Cedric told “CBS Mornings” Thursday. “I just want to have the kind of party where we have fun with each other. This will be the first time we can all come back to a room.”
