Emmys: What time does the show start, who will win, who hosts?

Adjust Comment Print

The event will be hosted by Stephen Colbert.

There will be fierce competition among a host of acclaimed first-timers, including HBO sci-fi Western show "Westworld", Hulu's dystopian "The Handmaid's Tale" and Netflix's 1980s-set horror series "Stranger Things".

Who will win the night's biggest honors?

The world's most renowned television awards show, "Oscars of Television" or the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards is right around the corner.

Gennady Golovkin hopes Canelo Alvarez fight will rank him with middleweight greats
Other than the Mayweather fight, Canelo has looked almost unstoppable against top tier opponents like Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan . I've worked hard for all the opportunities I've been given so I've got a real chance of getting myself into that position.

NBC's long-running comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" received 22 nominations - the joint-highest total alongside "Westworld" - after a year of mercilessly spoofing the new commander-in-chief. When the ceremony proper begins at 8:00 p.m. ET, you'll have to change the channel; all of the Big Four networks take turns hosting the annual event, and this year it's CBS' turn. Will Westworld, Stranger Things, The Crown, House of Cards, Better Call Saul, This is Us or The Handmaid's Tale be the series that takes over from Game of Thrones, which isn't in the running this year? In the race of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category has Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon from Big Little Lies will be seen against each other.

"Veep" is competing with "Atlanta"; "black-ish,"; "Master of None"; "Silicon Valley"; "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Modern Family", which, with five previous wins in the category, is tied with "Frasier" for most top-series awards ever. Keeping that in mind, we're here to help by telling you how to watch the 2017 Emmys live, no matter what your TV sitch may be.

This year's Red Carpet will be broadcast on the E!

The Emmys airs on CBS Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET and runs until 11 p.m. ET. If you're already a Sling user, you'll of course be able to watch the Emmys on CBS through that service; and if not, just like CBS All Access, you can sign up for a seven-day free trial. Last year's best drama victor wasn't eligible for Emmy consideration this year, because the HBO blockbuster premiered later than usual, outside the window of Emmy eligibility.
