Emmy Parties 2017: Showtime & Amazon Take A Break, Hulu Joins The Festivities


As we head into the main weekend of the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, here again is Deadline’s list of parties through Monday. (originally posted Sept. 7)

There are some notable changes this year. Showtime, whose Saturday night pre-Emmy party tradition dates back to 2005, will sit out the festivities for the first time in 12 years. A recent addition to the Emmy party circuit, Amazon, also will not have an Emmy party after hosting a bash on Emmy night for the past two years. NBCUniversal, which benched its pre-Emmy party staple last year, is not bringing it back despite a big nominations haul, paced by a record-breaking tally for Saturday Night Live and a breakout performance for This Is Us. Showtime and NBC are planning private dinners/receptions for their nominees on Saturday night.

We have a new Emmy party entrant this year, Hulu, which will throw its first bash on Emmy night on the heels of its big nominations breakthrough fueled by the success of The Handmaid’s Tale. 

In other tweaks, Comedy Central’s party is on the move again. After switching from a post-Emmy (Sunday night) to a pre-Emmy soiree (the night before) last year, the cable network is moving its annual celebration to the weekend of the Creative Emmy Awards, the first net to shift its party from the crowded Primetime Emmys weekend to the weekend of the Creative Emmys when more than 90 categories are awarded. Comedy Central has a number of contenders that weekend, including veteran South Park, a nominee for best animated program.
