The live stream will begin hours before the Emmy Awards begin at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, so check out all of the TV and online viewing options below.
First, let’s get to the lineup of presenters who will appear on stage tonight to give out golden statues to the best-of-the-best in the television industry. Then scroll down to get the details on the live stream online and mobile links that will allow you to watch the Emmys without a TV.
Late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, who is up for the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series for Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel, will host the September 18 Emmys.
Kimmel revealed on Twitter that he had some help with tonight’s jokes from his adorable two-year-old daughter, Jane, but it won’t be all child’s play on Sunday night. Earlier this week, he told Entertainment Weekly that “no one is safe” when it comes to his opening monologue, even his celebrity friends.
