40th Primetime Emmy Awards
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 40th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on August 28, 1988. The ceremony was broadcast on Fox, from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pasadena, California. The ceremony was pushed back from its newly established September date because of the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. The Primetime Emmy Awards are awards presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming. First awarded in 1949, they were originally referred to as just the "Emmy Awards" until the first Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies were held in the 1970s, and the word "primetime" was added to disambiguate between the two.
