Fun facts about the Emmy® Awards
Q. Are the Emmy's just for TV Shows?
A. Short answer: yes! The Emmy Awards are a product of The Television Academy, so they’re primarily focused on television productions.
Q. Why do the Emmys have no host?
A. In 2019, The Emmys decided to go host-less, much like the Oscars (Academy Awards®) before them. However, this year Jimmy Kimmel returns to host the 2020 Emmys!
Q. Why is it the 'purple carpet' for the Emmy's?
A. According to the LA Times, the Emmys carpet is purple because it’s “honoring television royalty.” We like the sound of that!
Q. Are Emmy awards made of real gold?
A. Once again according to the LA Times, the Emmy Award statues themselves are purportedly made of copper and nickel then dipped in liquid gold. That’s pretty cool, if you ask us.
