After two years of virtual shows amidst the Covid 19 pandemic, the 73rd Emmy Awards will be held in person this year with an eagerly anticipated red carpet. Similar to the 2021 Met Gala, the Emmys will be a scaled-down version of the ceremony. Instead of the 7,100 seat Microsoft Theater where the Emmys typically take place, the show will be held in a tent with a few hundred attendees, The NY Times reports.
