About Primetime Emmy Awards

The Primetime Emmy Award is an American award bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

It is given in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming.

It was first given in 1949.

The award was originally referred to as simply the Emmy Awards until the first Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies were held in the 1970s. The word prime time was added to distinguish between the two.

The Emmy Awards are considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (film), Grammy Awards (music), and Tony Awards (stage).

The awards are divided into three categories: the Primetime Emmy Awards for television performance, the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards.
