Meet the Emmys, in All Their Glory

HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 22, 2000 – Emmys, anyone?

Taking the Emmys to the street, the folks at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences unveiled the first-ever public viewing of the famous gold statuettes in Universal Studios Hollywood today.

An armored motorcade (well, actually, more like an armored truck with two motorcycles trailing it) delivered the 27 Emmys to Universal’s Globe Theatre this morning. The statuettes will remain there, on public display, until Sept. 5, just prior to the Emmy broadcast.

Academy of Television Arts and Sciences President Jim Chabin and Emmy award-winning actress Camryn Manheim from “The Practice” were at hand for the unveiling ceremony.

The Emmy Awards will be handed out Sept. 10.
