The 75th Annual Emmy Awards Airs on FOX (2023)
Award Shows and Ceremonies | Sep 18, 2023
The 75th Emmy Awards telecasts live from Los Angeles Monday on September 18, 2023 (8:00-11:00 PM Eastern Time) on FOX Network. Emmy winners Jesse Collins and Dionne Harmon, along with Emmy-nominee Jeannae Rouzan-Clay of Jesse Collins Entertainment executive produce the 2023 edition of the show.
Hand made from virgin metal, the Emmy statuette weighs 6 pounds, 12 ounces and stands 15.5 inches tall. The winged woman is crafted in a vintage steel mold, and the atom is soldered together from six pieces then affixed to the statuette. It is then plated in four alloys including copper nickel, silver and finally 24 carat gold. Each takes 5-1/2 hours to make and is handled with white gloves throughout its creation to prevent fingerprints. The Emmy becomes personal when it is engraved with the name of each winner.
When the 75th Emmy Awards air in September, millions of viewers will be a part of history — gazing at one of the few changes to the iconic award since its 1948 creation. Remarkably, it took 47 proposals for the original Emmy design back then before the 48th was finally accepted by the Television Academy. For 2023 only, the Emmy statuette will possess a different glistening look: Adorning the base of the revered figurine will be etched the simple but powerful inscription “75.”
