About Primetime Emmy Awards: Details, Categories, History

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

The Primetime Emmy Award is given in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming.

The Primetime Emmy Award was first presented on 25th January 1949. It is generally air in mid-September, on the Sunday before the official start of the fall television season.
The Primetime Emmy 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 Primetime Emmy Awards are considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (film), Grammy Awards (music), and Tony Awards (theatre).

The Primetime Emmy 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.
