70th Primetime Emmy Awards 2018 Odds

The Emmy awards, simply known as Emmys, are an annual American award given to outstanding series and actors in the television industry. The award is an equivalent to the Academy Award (movies), the Tony Award (theatre), and the Grammys (music).

Due to the fact that Emmys are given to different sectors in the American television industry, there are different annual Emmy ceremonies held each year. The two biggest ceremonies are the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Daytime Emmys, recognizing excellence in American primetime and daytime TV.

The Emmys are presented by 3 independent, but linked organizations – ATAS (Academy of Television Arts & Sciences), NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences) and IATAS (Internation Academy of Television Arts & Sciences). ATAS presents the Primetime Emmy Awards at a ceremony held since 1949. The Primetime Emmy Award ceremony is typically held in September and airs on either Fox, NBC, ABD or CBS. The ceremony includes many categories including outstanding actors in lead and supporting roles, outstanding directing and outstanding writing in different categories of series.

The 2018 Primetime Emmy Award ceremony will be held on September 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It will be the 70th Primetime Emmys ceremony and will be hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost. This year, NBC has the rights to air the ceremony. The shows with the most nominations are comedies Atlanta and Saturday Night Live, while in the Drama category, the Handmaid’s Tale has 8 nominations as well.
