Kelly Cuoco, Jason Sudeikis, Kate Winslet and more will help honor the year’s best show
It’s time to celebrate another year of television.
Every year, the Television Academy brings out the best comedies, dramas, made-for-TV movies, mini-series and more with the Emmy Awards, widely recognized as the industry’s highest honor.
Despite the recognition for massively popular shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Shit’s Creek” and the promise of a star-studded event wearing expensive outfits, award shows like the Emmys have dwindled.
It remains to be seen whether this year will break the low ratings curse despite being the second year that will undoubtedly look at least a little different due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
