It looks like the 75th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will not be occurring on September 18, as planned.

Variety was the first to report that vendors, producers, and others involved with the ceremony have already been notified that the Television Academy and awards ceremony airer Fox need a raincheck on their services. The same goes for the Creative Art Emmys, originally slated for September 9 and 10.

While a new date has not yet been decided upon, the TV Academy has confirmed that final Emmys voting will stick to the same timeline, opening on August 17 and closing the night of August 28, meaning whatever nominees not taking part in the WGA or SAG-AFTRA strikes are still campaigning. Notably, actors cannot participate in promoting their awards-nominated shows, per work stoppage orders.

However, while Variety also reported that the TV Academy and Fox were in a debate over whether to reschedule the main ceremony for November (like the show had done before in 2001, in wake of the 9/11 attacks), or January 2024, the AMPTP’s refusal to come to the bargaining table with either union puts both proposed dates at risk. A move to winter 2024 would also be extra difficult, as it would cause possible overlap between the Emmys and the several other televised awards shows that occur that season.

While neither representatives for the TV Academy nor Fox provided comment on the move from September 18 as official, the TV Academy provided a statement to IndieWire that said, “Like the rest of the industry, we hope there will be an equitable and timely resolution for all parties in the current guild negotiations. We continue to monitor the situation closely with our partners at Fox and will advise if and when there is an update available.”

The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have colored the majority of Emmys season, with writers refraining from campaigning as soon as their strike became official at the beginning of May, with SAG-AFTRA members joining them almost immediately after Emmy nominations were announced on July 12.

With both writers and performers unable to participate in the awards telecast under current strike guidelines, the show is unlikely to occur until things are resolved between the unions and the AMPTP. While the forthcoming Emmys did not yet name a host, it was announced that Jesse Collins Entertainment would be producing the event.

Watch Jay-Z’s surprise performance with Alicia Keys at 2024 Tony Awards

JayZ Alicia Keys Empire State Of Mind performance Tony Awards

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performing live at the 2024 Tony Awards

Jay-Z made a surprise appearance during Alicia Keys‘ performance at the 2024 Tony Awards last night (June 16) – watch the footage below.

Keys’ Broadway musical Hell’s Kitchen was nominated for 13 awards at the ceremony, which took place at the Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York City.

The R&B artist began singing ‘Empire State Of Mind’ – her 2009 collaborative single with Jay-Z – alongside the cast of her show. While walking into the audience, she said: “[I] had to do something crazy! It’s my home town!”

She then threw to the rapper, who appeared on the big screen. He was seen standing on a set of stairs in a theatre lobby as he rapped his lines from the track before Keys joined him.

Ahead of the outing, Keys told Entertainment Tonight that the Hell’s Kitchen cast would be “bringing all of their passion and fire” to the “spectacular” performance at the Tony Awards. “I’m so excited for this,” she added.

The artist had teased her surprise reunion with Jay by sharing a photo of two microphones on social media. One was labelled with her initials in gold pen, with the other featuring the letter “J”. See the posts below.

A post shared by Alicia Keys (@aliciakeys)

Hell’s Kitchen is “an unforgettable new show loosely based on Alicia Keys’ personal experiences, featuring both newly created music and many of her soulful, iconic songs”, per an official synopsis.

It reads: “In a cramped apartment hanging off the side of Times Square, 17-year-old Ali is desperate to get her piece of the New York dream. Ali’s mother is just as determined to protect her daughter from the same mistakes she made.

“When Ali falls for a talented young drummer, both mother and daughter must face hard truths about race, defiance, and growing up. Ali feels trapped, until the sound of a neighbour playing piano opens the door to an unexpected friendship and a radically different future.”

In other news, Keys recently teamed up with Sam Smith for a duet of the latter’s song ‘I’m Not The Only One’.
