2012 Emmy Awards Live: Watch The Red Carpet Online [Video]

Tonight, the best actors, actresses, and TV shows will be honored at the 2012 Emmy Awards show.

The awards show starts at 8 pm EST on ABC but the stars will start arriving at the Nokia Theater a few hours before. PopSugar will be streaming live from the red carpet starting at 6 EST. The Backstage Live Emmy Cam will start its broadcast an hour earlier at 7 pm EST. The backstage cam will also give a behind the scenes look throughout the 2012 Emmy Awards Show.

And the behind the scene camera could be just as fun as the telecast as host Jimmy Kimmel has promised a show full of pranks.

Kimmel said:

“I am gonna do something very weird during the show. I think it could possibly be the biggest prank ever pulled, as far as number of people involved. Possibly. I haven’t researched it, but it’ll definitely be right up there. The audience will be a participant in this. So it’s important that you watch because you’re either going to be in on it or not. I’m planning to embarrass my parents on the show… I have been huddling with my brother and sister trying to come up with the perfect thing because I figure this is the biggest audience I’ve ever had on television — 20 million people — what can I say about my parents that will make my mom mad at me afterwards?”

Host Jimmy Kimmel and nominees like Bryan Cranston, Tina Fey, Larry David, and Sofia Vergara won’t be arriving to the Nokia theater for several hours but the stars are already getting ready for the 64th Emmy Awards. Celebrities have been posting makeup shots, dress options, and pre-Emmy breakfasts pics to Twitter.

Here’s a live stream from the red carpet at the 2012 Nokia Theater. During the show, you can watch the backstage live cam at the 2012 Emmy Awards here.
