Emmy® Awards To Celebrate Turning 75

The Television Academy revealed an exclusive glimpse into the historic 75th Emmy® Awards and the extraordinary roster of cast reunions and presenters set to appear at the ceremony during the Academy’s Emmys Press Preview event held this morning. Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the 75th Emmy Awards will air this Monday, Jan. 15 (8:00-11:00 PM EST/5:00-8:00 PM PST), on FOX and will also be available the next day on Hulu.
The Academy welcomed Anderson and Executive Producers Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay to share a “sneak peek” at this year’s unique show elements. Details revealed included show-stopping cast reunions and tributes to hit television series spanning seven-plus decades, including The Sopranos, Martin, Cheers, Grey’s Anatomy, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, All in the Family, Ally McBeal and I Love Lucy.
Additionally, the collaboration of Charlie Puth and husband-and-wife duo The War and Treaty was announced for this year’s “In Memoriam.” Travis Barker is also set to perform along with Anderson for a showstopping open.
Anderson also revealed his unconventional plan for keeping things moving on Emmy night. Instead of the traditional play-off music to wrap up long speeches, for the first time in Emmy history, his mother, Doris Bowman aka Mama Doris, will act as the “enforcer” to ensure a swift pace of the telecast.
Members of the media and attendees were invited to enjoy an immersive experience on a recreation of the infamous candy factory set from I Love Lucy, where a real functioning nine-foot-long conveyor belt allowed participants to explore exactly how much chocolate could be stuffed inside their mouth, much like the famous scene between Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance. Who will be cast as the scheming duo for the anniversary telecast? Tune in to find out the surprise performers!
Samplings of libations to be featured at the Governors Gala, the official Emmys afterparty, were provided by 75th Emmy Awards season partners Franciacorta, Johnny Walker Blended Scotch Whisky and JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery. Award-winning Pastry Chef Sherry Yard served up the desserts that will be featured at the Gala while guests stayed hydrated with FIJI® Water. Drybar® was also on hand to showcase their touch-up pamper stations for the big day.
