After last week's 2021 Creative Arts Emmy, the primetime and daytime Emmys are all set to be hosted on Sunday (September 19). The two categories of Emmy awards are meant to recognize excellence in different fields of the production of reality, variety, documentary, animation, comedy, drama, limited series, and movies.

The ceremony will be held outside the Microsoft Theater campus in Los Angeles. After last year's socially distanced event amidst the pandemic, Emmy 2021 will be taking place in person. This is why Apple TV Plus' The Morning Show star Jennifer Aniston is skipping the 2021 Emmy Awards.


Aniston revealed to Jimmy Kimmel,

"No, I will not be going. I think Ben Winston, our producer and director, [who's] incredible, who put the whole thing together [will go]."
