Tina FeyThis year, the Emmys are doing it live on the West Coast.

According to Broadcast & Cable, NBC has confirmed that the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmys will air live on both coasts, similar to how the Golden Globes were televised in January. The last time the Emmy Awards were broadcast in this fashion was in 1976, when ABC was in charge of the production.

The telecast will air Aug. 29, from 8-11PM ET and from 5-8PM ET, and will also serve as the unofficial kickoff to the fall television series.

The decision is the likely result of round-the-clock Internet coverage, which often spoils the winners well in advance.Tina FeyThis year, the Emmys are doing it live on the West Coast.

Last year's ceremony was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and drew 13.3 millions, making it the most-watched telecast in three years.

No word yet on who will host this year's ceremony.
