The Ultimate Primetime Emmy Awards Trivia Challenge
The first Emmy awards ceremony took place in 1949. At this ceremony, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gave out just six Emmy awards, including the Most Popular Television Program, Best Film Made for Television, and Most Outstanding Television Personality. While that first ceremony only included six awards, they now give an Emmy Award to 27 different winners, covering everything from Production Design in Television Shows to Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama.
The Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony has become such a spectacle that even the Emmy nominations are presented on live television. The Emmy Awards evolved into one of the most-watched awards shows on television. The show is famous for both its star-studded audience and the unique award it gives out: a winged woman holding an atom.
Now it is your turn to prove just how much you know about the previous Emmy winners over the past 73 years.
Emmy Awards trivia
The Primetime Emmy Awards are an award ceremony that rewards the best television shows of the year. The very first ceremony was all the way back in 1949. The Television Academy started when its founder, Syd Cassyd, decided that television was an outlet that deserved to be taken seriously.
Even the design of the Emmy statuette was created to honor all the people involved in the Arts & Sciences in Television. Since the show debuted over 70 years ago, it has grown into a huge global pageant of glitz and glamour.
