Stephen Colbert Excited to Host His First Emmy Awards

Suits and Sequins Stars Roll Out for Emmy 2017 in Style

Suits and Sequins Stars Roll Out for Emmy 2017 in Style

Who's presenting at the Emmy Awards? The networks might have the last laugh, however: HBO's Westworld has the biggest number of Emmys noms this year with no fewer than 22 mentions, and is also nominated in this category.

In honor of Sunday night's big event, we look at some of our favorite series and stars celebrating all things Emmy.

The biggest names in streaming television will face off at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

Those dates are what prevented shows like "Game of Thrones" from receiving any nominations for the 2017 Emmys. She is attending the Emmy awards despite her series Quantico not being nominated for any category.

That one is easy: The Emmys air on CBS with Stephen Colbert set to host.

And there's no short of hot contenders to take its place. So it's the robot cowboys of "Westworld" dominating the drama categories. Stalwarts like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones aren't in the running this year - the former ended before last year's awards, and the latter didn't air its season within the eligibility window.

Expect Stranger Things to pick up Outstanding Drama Series and Atlanta to steal Outstanding Comedy Series in spite of Veep being the favourite. Only four years later, almost half of the shows nominated for best comedy or drama come from streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, which has been nominated this year for their original series, The Handmaid's Tale.

Two years later, he is the new king of late night and on top of the ratings. The NBC hit is the first network drama nominated since "The Good Wife" in 2011, while a potential victory would make it the first network show to win Best TV Drama since "24" back in 2006. Should Riz win for his critically acclaimed performance in HBO's The Night Of?

Melissa McCarthy and Dave Chappelle already won for Outstanding Guest Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series for their appearances on "SNL". However, it isn't the only show with newcomer appeal, as fellow competitors Stranger Things, The Crown, This is Us and The Handmaid's Tale are all first-time nominees at the Emmy Awards.
