The Emmy Awards are tonight! Each year, the Academy of
Television Arts & Sciences hosts an awards ceremony to recognize
outstanding achievements in television. It is one of the biggest red
carpet events of the year, and over 13 million Americans will tune in to
watch the show.
The inaugural Emmy Awards ceremony took place in 1949. Did you know
that “Emmy” is a feminized version of the word “immy”? This term refers
to a piece of equipment used in TV cameras until the 1960s. The Emmy
statuette is a winged woman holding an atom in her outstretched arms,
which symbolizes the collaboration between art and science.
Join in the festivities and invite your friends over to watch the
Emmys tonight. Make some popcorn, vote on the best-dressed celebrity,
and enjoy the show!
