69th Annual EMMY AWARD Nominations Announcement!

But before we get to the 2017 Emmy Awards, the nominees have to be announced.

But he faces competition for the elusive statuette from Sterling K Brown ("This Is Us"), Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul") and last year's victor Rami Malek ("Mr. Robot"). The ceremony begins with a welcome from Television Academy President and COO Maury McIntyre on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 11:20 a.m. ET, followed by the live announcement of nominations at 11:30 a.m. ET.

"Stranger Things", which is streamed by Netflix, won the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series and for show of the year at the MTV Movie + TV Awards.

Two high-rated drama contenders, "Game of Thrones" and "Downton Abbey", won't be represented - the former because it's premiering outside the June-through-May eligibility window, the latter because it completed its run in 2016.

The 69th Emmy Awards is produced by White Cherry Entertainment. HBO's "Veep" remains a good bet to be tasked with defending the comedy crown it's worn two years running.

Other honorees from a year ago seeking repeat nominations are ABC's "black-ish"; Netflix's "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"; HBO's "Silicon Valley"; and Amazon Instant Video's "Transparent".

House of Cards is also expected to earn yet another nomination.

Veep's Anna Chlumsky and S.W.A.T. actor Shemar Moore will present the nominations for the annual TV award show.

The 69th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8:00-11:00 PM ET/5:00-8:00 PM PT) on CBS.
