The 2022 Emmy Awards will return to the Microsoft Theater on September 12, after a two-year absence during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that saw the ceremony moved to the Crypto.com Arena in 2020 and the Event Deck at L.A. Live in 2021.
Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson will be taking over hosting duties for the first time, and he promised that controversies such as Will Smith’s shocking slap of Chris Rock at the Academy Awards ‘won’t happen again’ under his watch.
‘Even if I am roasting [someone], it shouldn’t come across as any sort of malice,’ he told the Associated Press.
The 74th annual award show, which celebrates the best in television, has already awarded a number of honors at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony.

After adopting a Golden Globes–like atmosphere at the 2021 ceremony, the Emmys will continue to seat nominees at tables close to the stage, though the larger venue will now allow more guests to sit in the rows of seats behind them.
Many of the Covid-related restrictions from last year’s event appear to have been dropped for the 2022 edition.
