Emmys 2017: Nominees, When And Where To Watch, Online Live Stream

Emmys 2017 is set to take place at Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, on Sunday, September 17. This year’s awards show, which honors the best of the best of television and emerging media, may end up being a little political with Stephen Colbert hosting it for the first time. The Late Show host is expected to continue his verbal attack on Donald Trump.

The U.S. President’s shadow may hover over the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, but he is unlikely to outshine the stars of the small screen. And Sunday night promises to throw up plenty of surprises and crown new shows and talent.

Emmys 2017 will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Online, viewers can watch the awards show on CBS’ streaming service, CBS All Access. For first-time users, the site is offering a free trial. The CBS’ streaming service is available on Apple TV, Amazon TV, Roku, and more. Hulu Live is also an option for those who have not subscribed to CBS streaming service. Emmys 2017 can also be watched via fuboTV, which offers 7-day trial period.

E! will cover the pre-show. The cable channel’s coverage, Live From the Red Carpet, starts at 6 p.m. ET. Online, viewers can watch all the red carpet action via E! Now.

At this year’s Emmys, for the first time in years, HBO’s juggernaut fantasy series Game of Thrones is not winning any awards. The show’s Season 7 premiered too late in the summer — July 16, making it ineligible for nomination. The absence of Games of Thrones from Emmys 2017’s nomination list has left the competition wide-open in the drama category.

For the coveted outstanding drama series award, five first-time nominees, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us and Westworld are in contention, along with Better Call Saul and House of Cards. This Is Us, Stranger Things and The Handmaid’s Tale are reportedly leading the race to grab the golden statue for best drama series.

Westworld and Saturday Night Live leads the nomination list, with 22 nominations each. Netflix’s breakout show Stranger Things has scored 18 nominations. When it comes to network totals, HBO tops the list with a whopping 111 Emmy nominations, followed by Netflix with 91 nods. And Veep‘s star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in contention to win her sixth straight Emmy for best actress in a comedy, and if she wins, the actress will tie Cloris Leachman’s record of eight acting Emmys.
