As Emmy voting season gets underway, Netflix is bringing back its 32,000 square foot event center staged at Los Angeles’ Raleigh Studios. There, the streaming service will host more than a month of #FYSee events, screenings and theme nights all in the name of encouraging Emmy voters to pick its shows.
Netflix’s For Your Consideration (FYC) events actually begin Friday, April 20, with Netflix Animation Day and continue through that week with screenings of Bojack Horseman and The OA on Sunday, April 22 and Friday, April 27, respectively.
But the real kick-off comes opening night on Sunday, May 5, when Martin Scorsese and Bruce Springsteen will appear to discuss their Netflix projects, The Irishman and Springsteen on Broadway.
On June 9, Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay will close out the activation with an on-stage conversation with the cast of their new limited series, When They See Us, which debuts May 31 on Netflix.
In between, the center will host conversations, performances and wall-to-wall displays highlighting much of the service’s content including dramas Bodyguard, House of Cards, Ozark and The Umbrella Academy; comedies Russian Doll, The Kominsky Method, GLOW and debuting series Dead to Me; animated series BoJack Horseman, Disenchantment and Big Mouth; documentary series Our Planet, Making a Murderer Part 2, and Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes; fan favorites Queer Eye and Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj; and food shows including Salt Fat Acid Heat, Chef’s Table and Nailed It!.
Specifically, the center will host a GLOW Binge-a-thon, an all-day watching experience with GLOW cast members as well as “Prom Night,” where visitors will be able to hang out with the cast and creators from Netflix shows set in high school, including Sex Education, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, On My Block and others.
And returning this year are events and themed nights such as “Rebels and Rulebreakers,” “Scene Stealers,” “Netflix Is a Joke,” “Change in Focus,” and “Food Day.” In addition, special artisan days with events and panels will include a “Costume Designers’ Showcase,” “The Music of Netflix,” and “Crafts Day.”
Voting for Emmy nominations ends June 24 with nominations announced July 16. Final round voting ends August 29. Winners will be announced at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmys Sunday, Sept. 22 on Fox.
