The 71st Emmyss, produced by Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Los Angeles on Sunday, September 22 from 8-11 PM ET/5-8 PM PT on Fox.

It’ll be presented without a host for the fourth time in its history. Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier said that it wanted to save time to salute a number of shows including Game of Thrones, Empire, Veep and The Big Bang Theory.

“Our job is to assess as to how to elevate the program in the year that we have it. If you have a host and an opening, that’s 15 or 20 minutes you can’t have to salute the shows,” he said.
