But the TV industry overall, including the broadcast networks that still field popular shows but are largely eclipsed at the エミー賞 will be honored, say those in charge of the event airing 8 午後. EDT on CBS.
"時々, programs that can be called ‘niche’ walk off with the awards and a lot of people …. are going, ‘What the hell is that?’” said Ian Stewart, executive producer of the ceremony with Reginald Hudlin. “So we’ve been really mindful of that, and bring in big stars that everyone knows and loves.”
