On Tuesday, Emmy Awards ceremony for achievement in television was moved outdoors because of rising concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

The television academy said in a statement, “The Television Academy and CBS have decided to host all ceremonies… on the Event Deck at LA LIVE, directly behind the Microsoft Theatre,”

The statement said the changes followed discussions with Los Angeles County health and safety experts.

“Unfortunately, this means not all nominees will be able to attend this year’s awards,” the organisers said.

Initially, the ceremony was due on 19th September in Los Angeles before a limited celebrity audience.

Last year’s Emmy Awards took place in an empty studio with nominees from around the world joining on video screens from their homes and gardens. Concerns over the Delta variant of the virus on Tuesday prompted singer Stevie Nicks, 73, to cancel five concerts.
