Thank you for joining us for the 73rd emmy awards nominations, announcement, nominations. Announcements are always exciting for us at the television academy, but this year they are particularly heartwarming. These nominations represent the work done in television through the most challenging year. I can think of, and all we want to do is celebrate them and all the amazing program that carried us through thanks to a giant effort by so many professionals from every trade in television. We can celebrate the stories. The jokes tender moments, news and pure fun from the last year that provided a lifeline for so many of us and while many of us in our medium worked remotely throughout the last 18 months, i have to say it feels so good to be getting back on A set making great television is a collaborative group effort where the sum equals more than the parts, and i can’t tell you how much i’ve missed it, and that includes the television academy’s own special occasions. Even though we still manage to deliver all our events to our membership and industry, virtually we are thrilled that getting together in person is on the horizon. Once again, virtual events kept us all connected when we needed it most, but i am ready to celebrate excellence in television face to face to help us get. This party started are two people who made emmy history in 2020. They are the only duel around to win.
