It’s not that we ever stopped loving television, but it has played a bigger role in many people’s lives since the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed the way we socialize. So even if you’ve never attended to the Emmy Awards, you might be a little more invested this year and interested in seeing whether your favorite quarantine feasts will win an award in the end. (And maybe you still don’t care, but in this case, there isn’t much in it for you.)
Definitely that 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards are tomorrow evening (that’s Sunday, September 19, 2021) and there are several ways to tune in. Here’s what you should know.
This is how you see Emmys 2021
Let’s start with the basics: The Primetime Emmy Awards 2021 takes place tomorrow afternoon in Los Angeles. Between the time differences and all that red carpet walking (though there will be far fewer people than usual this year), the actual show starts at 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST and is scheduled to run for three hours.
Those with cable (or someone else’s credentials) can easily watch the show live on their local CBS station – along with people who don’t have cable but have a working TV antenna.
There are plenty of streaming options too – notably: Roku, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, AT&T TV, Sling TV, Fubo TV, and Paramount +, the streaming service from CBS. Yes, these are all paid subscriptions, but if you haven’t used up your free trial with a particular service, you can redeem it anytime.

Cedric the Entertainer is hosting this year’s Emmy Awards. This year’s show will take place in the Microsoft Theater LA Live Event Deckbecause it has seating both inside and outside and plenty of space for physical distancing, because yes, we are still in the middle of a pandemic. About 500 guests are expected.
All nominees and further information can be found on the Emmy Awards website.
