No sooner than Oscar season has ended and the Emmy season is upon us, and that means Deadline is gearing up for our fourth annual The Contenders Emmys all-day event, set this year for Sunday, April 7 at a new venue, Paramount Studios. The anticipated day has become a key launch for the beginning of the race for television’s highest award and regularly draws the industry’s top names who appear onstage talking about their shows (with exclusive clips) in front of an invited audience that includes Television Academy and key Guild members.
A total of 20 studios and networks are set to participate, bringing showrunners and talent from their biggest Emmy hopefuls including ABC Studios, Netflix, A+E Networks (Lifetime and A&E), CBS Television Studios, Paramount Network, Comedy Central, Amazon Studios, 20th Century Fox Television, HBO, Hulu, Masterpiece on PBS, National Geographic, POP TV, TNT/ TBS, Warner Bros Television Group, Starz Entertainment, IFC, AMC, FX and AT&T Audience Network.
Amazon is back hosting our breakfast, Netflix is hosting the lunch, and Hulu will again be sponsoring our closing cocktail reception. The event runs from 7 AM-7:30 PM at the beautiful Paramount Theatre right in the heart of Hollywood.
RSVPs open the third week in March and fill up quickly. See you in April.
