The ongoing writers’ strike in Hollywood is having an impact on several TV shows, with it recently reported that season 4 of The Mandalorian is expected to be delayed as a result.
Now the Daytime Emmy Awards 2023, which were due to take place this June, have officially been postponed, it’s been announced, after the impact the strike had on the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
In a statement released by Adam Sharp, the President and CEO of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, he said that they looked forward to their ‘community gathering together’ when the ceremony does eventually go ahead in future.
‘The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards planned for Friday, June 16 on CBS is postponed due to the WGA strike,’ the message read.
‘In addition, the Creative Arts and Lifestyle ceremony, planned for Saturday, June 17, has been postponed pending a strike resolution.
‘We look forward to our community gathering together as one to celebrate our Golden Anniversary and all of the talented nominees and honorees at a later date.’
The Tony Awards 2023, an awards ceremony that recognises the most esteemed productions and performers on Broadway over the past year, are also due to take place next month on June 12.
It was reported this week that the WGA (Writers Guild of America) are not planning on picketing the event, allowing it to proceed.
In a statement, the guild said: ‘As has been previously reported, the Writers Guilds of American East and West (WGA) will not negotiate an interim agreement or a waiver for the Tony Awards.
‘However, Tony Awards Productions (a joint venture of the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing) has communicated with us that they are altering this year’s show to conform with specific requests from the WGA. Therefore the WGA will not be picketing the show.’
The organisation added: ‘As they have stood by us, we stand with our fellow workers on Broadway who are impacted by our strike.’
The WGA said that the ‘responsibility for having to make changes to the format of the 2023 Tony Awards rests squarely on the shoulders of Paramount/CBS and their allies’.
‘They continue to refuse to negotiate a fair contract for the writers represented by the WGA,’ they stated.
It’s not yet been specified what changes are to be made to the Tonys ceremony.
Earlier this month, the MTV Movie & TV Awards went ahead, but the typical live show was scrapped, with the winners delivering pre-recorded speeches instead.
The Primetime Emmy Awards are due to take place in September later this year.
