The ceremony was originally to be held at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was changed virtually from the actors’ homes across the U.S. and will be held on September 20, 2020, and broadcast in the U.S. by ABC; it will be preceded by the 72nd Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on September 12 and 13. The nominations were announced on July 28, 2020, by Leslie Jones, Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany. The ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel; on July 29, 2020, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a letter was sent to the nominees and all involved announcing that the ceremony will be virtual rather than take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles as planned.
