The 73rd Emmy Awards returned Sunday night to celebrate the best in television. Actor and comedianis hosting the show in downtown Los Angeles, making him only the second solo Black host in the event’s history.
The annual event has a limited in-person audience made up of nominees and their guests. It’s a shift from last year’s show, which was partially virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, all attendees were asked to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19, the Television Academy said.
“Television is one of the things that got us through this whole pandemic,” Cedric told “CBS Mornings” on Thursday. “I just really want to have the kind of night where we have fun with each other. It’s going to be the first time we’re all like able to come back into a room.”
Netflix’s “The Crown” and Disney+’s “The Mandalorian” tied for the most, with each show receiving 24. Marvel’s “WandaVision” received 23 nominations, including one for the song “Agatha All Along.”
The award show is live on CBS and Paramount+.
