The 2023 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were initially supposed to be held in September 2023. The award ceremony was pushed due to the writer's and actor's strike.

The WGA strikes started in May 2023 and went on for the next four months. The strikes were organized to address issues that workers believed needed to be rectified. The strikes were wrapped up in November, which is why the 2023 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were scheduled for January 2024.

Tune in on Saturday, January 13, 2024, to watch the ceremony on FXX, which will also be available to stream on Hulu on Sunday, January 14, 2024.
