The Television Academy appreciates everyone’s understanding as we continue on to navigate the COVID-19 Delta variant.”

COVID fears will also consequence in fewer nominees being permitted to show up at the event.

“Though invites have just been mailed out, nominated teams of 3 or additional will now be limited to no additional than 4 tickets for each nomination,” in accordance to the academy. “However, this means not all nominees will be able to go to this year’s awards. We advocate those on nominated groups coordinate amongst themselves and recognize how they will allot their 4 tickets prior to filling out the RSVP form. The Television Academy will arrive at out to any nominated groups who have already responded requesting extra than 4 tickets.”
