'Saturday Night Live' and 'Westworld' are tied with the most nods. Who will come out on top?

Host of Sunday's Emmys Stephen Colbert tells Trump fans not to bother watching

The show airs on CBS so having the host of Late Night was a ideal pairing. Tune into red carpet commentary from E!, called "Live from the Red Carpet" for those of you new to the dress decoding game, prior to the actual awards ceremony at 6 p.m. EST on the network. News' Erin Lim. And of course "Emmys: The Show" will collect snaps from inside Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater throughout the event.

Hosted by Actor, Stephen Colbert, the Emmy Awards will honor the best in US prime time television programming which aired from June 1, 2016 until May 31, 2017, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. This is the same reason why the seventh season had such a late premiere date this year.

Although it's his first time hosting the Emmys, Colbert is no stranger to the awards.

And ironically, the most buzzed about show on television isn't even eligible. "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period", said Colbert. Not only is the freshman drama from HBO tied with Saturday Night Live with 22 nominations, but the show has already won five awards during the Creative Arts Emmys which already took place ahead of the September 17 main event, which focused on the acting and outstanding series categories.

Indian actor Priyanka Chopra, whose show Quantico isn't nominated in any of the categories, is among the presenters.

Ahead of its launch in a "few worldwide markets in the next couple of months" Hotstar, ranked number one by App Annie terms of MAUs, is also bringing the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards to the Indian viewers live. The last was Fox's "24" in 2006.

Some of the most exciting series this year fall under the "Best Comedy Series" category, including our favorite Aziz Ansari-directed Master of None (Netflix), Modern Family (ABC), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix), Blackish (ABC), Atlanta (FX), Silicon Valley (HBO), and Veep (HBO). She was nominated for a Golden Globe for this same role. The sci-fi saga is up for 22 trophies, including "Best Drama". Should Riz win for his critically acclaimed performance in HBO's The Night Of?

The NBC sketch comedy series looks to add to that haul on Sunday, as the show is up for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series while Alec Baldwin was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy for his impersonation of Trump.

When asked how political the show could get, Colbert said the Emmys are about celebrating television, "and the biggest television star of the previous year was Donald Trump".

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jeffrey Tambor unstoppable?

Harbour will face tough competition in that category, going against House Of Cards' Michael Kelly, The Crown's John Lithgow and Westworld's Jeffrey Wright.
