No doubt this will be a very interesting year for the nominees as it is the first under a major realignment of the Primetime and Daytime Emmy Awards, where the two ceremonies’ scopes will now revolve more around factors such as the themes, format, and style characteristics, instead of strictly dayparts which is a response to the growth of streaming television.

Television’s biggest night will honor American prime time television programming from June 1, 2021, until May 31, 2022, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS).
