It’s the biggest night for television.
If you don’t want to miss the fun, tune in to the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17 during the live broadcast on CBS and CBS All Access streaming service.
Stephen Colbert hosts the three-hour show from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and if the stars align he could become the Emmys first master of ceremonies to go home with multiple wins that night.
“The Late Show” and “Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh*t?” received six nominations between them.
This is Colbert’s first time hosting the telecast. He follows Jimmy Kimmel, who last year made his entrance in a star-studded carpool that ended with “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke’s dragon breathing fire on Ryan Seacrest.
Fortunately for Seacrest, “Game of Thrones” is out of the running at this year’s Emmys telecast because the new season got off to a late start.
This year’s contenders include NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and HBO’s “Westword,” tied with 22 nominations.
For “SNL,” it’s the most nominations the variety show has ever had in a single year and includes mentions for Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy portrayals of President Donald Trump and the former press secretary Sean Spicer.
Close behind with 18 nominations is Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” whose star Millie Bobby Brown could become the youngest Emmys winner in history if she captures best supporting actress. The current record-holder belongs to Roxana Zal, just 14 when she won for “Something About Amelia.”
“Stranger Things” is tied with FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan,” followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 17 nominations. And if you’re dying to see what Hollywood’s biggest, brightest, youngest stars will be wearing on the red carpet, well, you’ll just have to tune in for that too.
