How to Watch the Virtual Emmys 2020 From Australia


The 2020 Emmys are set to go live on Monday, September 21, however, due to pandemic, they are going to look very different this year.

Back in July, the nominations for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards were unveiled and usually, TV celebrities would gather together at a large-scale ceremony — with their best frocks, emotional speeches and hugs galore — so, it was a little surprising to hear it was still going ahead.

However, this year, it has been announced that the 2020 Emmys are going virtual.

How can we tune in from Australia?

The official ceremony kicks off at 10.00 am AEST on Monday, September 21, 2020.

If you’re lucky to have the pleasure of watching it live, you can tune into Foxtel’s Arena channel.

In surprising news, there will still be a virtual red carpet — although, we’re not quite sure what that looks like. The red carpet is available on Foxtel’s channel E! from 8 am.

What will the actual ceremony look like?

After the nominations were released, a letter was sent to the nominees via the executive producers and host Jimmy Kimmel (his opening monologue will sure be interesting), saying that they will not be attending a physical ceremony.

“We are assembling a top-notch team of technicians, producers and writers to work closely with Jimmy Kimmel and with you and your team, to make sure that we can film with you (and loved ones or whomever else you choose to be with) at your home, or another location of your choice. We’re going to make you look fabulous — we’re exploring the cutting edge of technology to allow to use good cameras and lighting and look forward to working with you to produce your unique ‘on-screen” moments.” To be honest, it sounds pretty cool!

Before the big morning, catch up on everyone who is nominated and place your bets about who will take home the top awards.
