The Television Academy has officially shared its 2022 Emmy calendar, and not a lot has changed from last year. Emmy nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 12 — which is the same time they were announced this past year — and there’s no word yet on an exact date for the Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies and Primetime Emmys event in September.
NBC has the rights to the Emmy telecast this year, as part of the four-wheel system, which means it’s likely that the ceremony will be held on a Monday. That’s because NBC airs NFL Sunday Night Football — and the last time the network broadcast the Emmys, in 2018, it was moved to Monday for that exact reason.
The Television Academy has not yet announced any category or rule changes for 2022; most recently, it partnered with the New York-based National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to announce a realignment of some series eligibility — moving to more genre, rather than daypart, distinctions.
The eligibility period for the 74th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be programs that aired between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022 — with the usual “hanging episodes” rules in effect for any series that has a season that straddles two different eligibility periods.
Here is the Primetime Emmys calendar for the 2022 awards season, subject, as always, to change:
