You know what the Emmys are. Everyone does. Unless you got yourself buried for the past 70 years, that is. Well for those who don’t know (but this is not possible at all), the Emmy Awards is an award-giving body jointly owned by the Television Academy and the National Academy.

It gives out awards such as Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Lead Actress, Outstanding Program, Outstanding Choreography and many more for TV series, Comedy series, Drama series and movies.

The Academy’s history can be traced as far back as the history of television itself. It was founded by Syd Cassyd, who aimed to make the organization a venue for everything that concerns the television industry. Though he rejected the idea of giving out awards at first, but eventually, he saw the opportunities that came with giving out annual awards. Thus, the Emmy Awards was born. You will know later on where the name “Emmy” came from. But first let us ask this all-important question: how to watch the Emmys live?

How to Watch the Emmys Live?

The short answer is this: watch the Emmys online using a trustworthy VPN provider. This 2018, the Emmys can be viewed live through the NBC network. And yes, NBC is available ONLY in the United States.

What if you are outside the US when the show is aired? Fortunately, you can still watch the most glamorous awards night by using a VPN or a virtual private network. It works in such a way that you will be connected to a server that is located in the US. With that comes a US IP address that will mask your real IP address.

IP addresses reveal the true physical location of the user, so getting a US IP address will let NBC know that you are from the US. And voila! You can access the Emmys and enjoy the awards night that will surely be filled with glitz and glamor, as always. The tip is to subscribe to a VPN service provider that has several servers in the US and other parts of the world. This way, you will have an endless amount of options in case a server won’t work for you.

Aside from NBC in the United States, you can also watch the Emmy live stream in the following countries by connecting to a server in the particular country. Note that you may need to have accounts with the links provided below, and that you still need to pay for your subscriptions if needed.

1. Australia – Connect to a server in Australia and go to

2. Canada  – Connect to a server in Canada and go to

Who are Up for Emmy Nominations?

It’s a bummer, but there’s no announcement yet. You can review last year’s primetime Emmy nominations here though. If you have a favorite show or movie in mind, cross your fingers. That show might get an Emmy!

Why is it Called the Emmys?

As promised in the second paragraph, let’s find out why it is called the Emmys. Well, this is assuming you still don’t know, of course. If you are a huge fan of the awards show, chances are you already know this.

But for those who don’t, the Emmys is not named after anyone’s wife or mother. The Academy’s founder, Syd Cassyd, initially wanted to name the award giving body, “Ike” which is the jargon name of a television iconoscope tube. Other game players vetoed the name tough because it sounded so much like General Dwight Eisenhower’s nickname (a World War II hero, in case you don’t know).

The third Television Academy, Henry Lubcke, suggested the name “Immy” which is the name of the image-orthicon camera tube (this tube played an important role in the creation of the television). “Immy” was changed into “Emmy” to suit the selected winged woman design for the statuette.
