In April 2022, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS, also known as the Television Academy) announced that the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards would be held on September 12; the corresponding Creative Arts ceremonies were announced for September 3 and 4. The main ceremony was shown on NBC as part of a four-year rotation; the ceremony was moved to a Monday to accommodate NBC's Sunday Night Football coverage. [62] [63] The broadcast was also streamed on Peacock. [64] The ceremony was produced by Hudlin Entertainment and Done and Dusted, with Reginald Hudlin, Ian Stewart, Byron Phillips and Jane Mun serving as executive producers. This marked Hudlin's third year and Done and Dusted's fifth year producing the Emmys ceremony. Hamish Hamilton served as director for the fifth time. [65] The ceremony returned to the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California after two years at other venues due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [66] Zedd and comedian Sam Jay served as the ceremony DJ and announcer, respectively. [67] [68] [69]

On August 9, 2022, it was announced that Kenan Thompson would host the ceremony. [70] The producers reportedly approached Chris Rock and Dwayne Johnson to host the ceremony, but had no success. NBC late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers – both past Emmys hosts – were also reportedly uninterested in the role. [71] Scherma initially indicated that a hostless ceremony was being considered, but the Television Academy quickly clarified that such an option was not being pursued. [72]

Emmys realignment

In December 2021, ATAS and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced a major realignment of the Emmy Award ceremonies. This was in response to the growth of streaming television, which blurred the lines in determining which shows should fall under the Daytime or Primetime Emmys. The two ceremonies' scopes were changed to revolve around factors such as the themes and frequency of such programming, rather than strictly dayparts. [73] [74]

Among the major changes that took effect at the 49th Daytime Emmy Awards in June 2022 and at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards in September 2022: [73] [74]

Categories for game shows and instructional programming remained split this year between the Daytime and Primetime Emmys, with their realignment to be determined in 2023. [73] [74]

Other rule changes

Several other rule changes were implemented for the ceremony. Most notably, programs were no longer categorized as dramas or comedies based on runtime; instead, producers determined where their programs were submitted, with the Television Academy reserving the right to review decisions. The distinction had previously been adjusted in 2015 to consider half-hour programs as comedies and hour-long programs as dramas. The exception to the new rule were programs under 20 minutes, which had to be submitted in short-form categories. The Television Academy also revised the description for the Governors Award and clarified that limited series must fully resolve story arcs with "no on-going storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons". [77] [78]

In July, the categories for the broadcast were revealed. Outstanding Variety Special (Live) and Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) were moved to the Creative Arts ceremonies, while Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special replaced Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series in the main broadcast. [79] [80]

Critical reviews and viewership

The broadcast received mixed to negative reviews from critics. [81] [82] Alan Sepinwall and Rob Sheffield from Rolling Stone each praised the speeches from the winners, particularly Ralph's, while criticizing many of the production elements such as the "In Memoriam" segment and the frequent play-off music. [83] [84] The Hollywood Reporter 's Daniel Fienberg criticized other production decisions, such as the opening number, the dedicated DJ and announcer, and the various montages. He ultimately found the broadcast forgettable, remarking in reference to the previous Academy Awards six months prior: "At least it wasn't a catastrophe." [85] Mike Hale, writing for The New York Times , found the scripted portions weak and remarked that there "seemed to be a consensus, organized or not, to keep it light". [86]

The Boston Globe 's Yvonne Abraham complimented Thompson as "a likeable host" and praised several of the speeches and presenters, but she ultimately found the ceremony to be "just another TV awards show... long and stuffed with unnecessary montages and comedy bits". [87] Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times also complimented Thompson despite being "saddled to some dumb bits". However, he criticized the show's pace, calling it fast and "somewhat exhausting", and compared the atmosphere to "watching [a party] through a window". [88] Conversely, Manuel Betancourt was more positive in his review for The A.V. Club , remarking that the program "offered plenty of laughs" and that it "served as a reminder that the boob tube still has the power to inspire wide-eyed girls and boys alike". [89]

Competing with the season premiere of Monday Night Football on ABC and ESPN, the ceremony was viewed by 5.92 million people in the United States, making it the least-viewed in Emmys history, representing a 19% decrease over the previous year's ceremony. It also achieved a 1.09 rating among adults ages 18–49. The ratings figures only include those who watched the telecast on NBC, and not those who streamed it on Peacock. [90]

In Memoriam

The annual In Memoriam segment was presented by Anthony Anderson and featured John Legend performing the song "Pieces". [57] [91] [92]
