Kia America returns as the Official Automotive Partner of the Emmys for the third year in a row with the updated 2023 Telluride making its primetime debut. The Telluride SUV is very familiar with celebrations of excellence, as it has collected every major automotive accolade since launch, including North American SUV of the Year, Motor Trend SUV of the Year and World Car of the Year.

Franciacorta is the name of a wine, a method and a region located in the north of Italy, which has mastered the art of creating harmony between ancient knowledge and technology. Throughout the Emmy Awards season, Franciacorta is providing numerous varietals of sparkling wines from the region’s finest wineries, produced with second fermentation in the bottle. Thanks to a production method regulated by strict and scrupulous standards, these sparkling wines have become synonymous with quality and were the first ones to have obtained the DOCG recognition in 1995. Celebrating its second Emmy partnership, Franciacorta toasts the power of television and its brightest stars.

FIJI Water is returning as the Official Water Partner of the 74th Emmy Awards for the ninth consecutive year, ready to debut a new bottle on the red carpet. The No. 1 premium imported water bottle brand in the U.S. will keep award show attendees hydrated with Earth’s Finest, iconic 500mL bottles made from 100% recycled material (rPET.) This, along with the 330mL SKU, is part of the brand’s effort to shift the entire portfolio to recycled plastic bottles by 2025. FIJI could not think of a better way to celebrate this brand achievement than with the friends and supporters of the Television Academy celebrating a year of performance and production milestones.

In celebration of television’s brightest stars, Ketel One Family Made Vodka is thrilled to return as the Official Spirits Partner of the 74th Emmy Awards Season. Ketel One Vodka raises a cocktail to the movers and shakers who have elevated their craft, inspired with their performances and challenged the status quo. Each year Ketel One Vodka strives to create better serves for the next generation of nominees who are as unique as the cocktails they drink and as discerning as the vodka they choose. To commemorate the occasion, Ketel One will feature four new original serves at Emmys events throughout the season (including one non-alcoholic option), by bar visionary and industry tastemaker Lauren Paylor and Diageo Reserve World Class award-winning mixologist Charles Joly.
