[서울=RNX뉴스] 박은경 기자 = 2019 Emmy Awards to Air Without a Host.
Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, recently announced that the 71st Emmy Awards will be hostless.
This will be the first time since 2003 that the show will go without a host.
According to Collier, this decision will allow for the Emmy’s limited time to be better distributed.
You have to look at tradeoffs, if you have host and opening number that's 15 minutes you don't have to celebrate the shows…
Our production team has had to balance those tradeoffs.
I think it will give us more time to honor those shows, Charlie Collier, via ‘Hollywood Reporter’.
The move was apparently inspired by the success of the 2019 Oscars, which also went without a host.
The Oscars did very well…That was something we paid attention to.
This is a unique year for some of America's favorite shows and producers came to conclusion that spending more time on those was the right thing to do, Charlie Collier, via ‘Hollywood Reporter’.
The Emmys are set to air on September 22, 2019.
