The Walt Disney Company finally has something to celebrate. With so much chatter of movements within the company and plenty of changes already underway, it is nice to take a step back and appreciate some of the hard work that has been done. The conglomerate announced 163 nominations were made for the EMMY Awards.

While it is still unsure if the EMMY Awards will occur as scheduled due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, it is still a massive accomplishment. The EMMY Awards are set to take place live, on September 18, 2023, at 8 p.m.
