Categories Revealed For Main Telecast & 2 Creative Arts Shows – Deadline

The Television Academy has announced the awards categories that will be presented during the 74th Emmy Awards, which will be broadcast live on NBC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 12, and the 2022 Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies, which will take place in the same location Saturday, September 3, and Sunday, September 4. An edited presentation will air September 10 on FXX.

No major changes in the lineup of the main telecast, which, like last year, will include 25 categories. The only tweaks from 2021 are Outstanding Sketch Series replacing Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special stepping in for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series as the two categories alternate.

As previously announced, the Creative Arts Emmys are going back to two ceremonies after expanding to three last year.

Here is the category list (in alphabetical order) by night:
