How and where to watch the award show online

Posted September 18, 2017

Tonight is the big celebration night for the world of Entertainment. The CBS All Access will be providing the live streaming of the event.

Colbert, whose "Late Show" is a regular forum on the Trump administration, said that the president is fair game during the awards show airing at 8 p.m. EDT Sunday on CBS.

This year the Emmys chose new shows over insanely popular old shows. 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. Twin Peaks has suffered the same situation and it will only be eligible for the 2018 awards.

Thus, new shows like Stranger Things and Westworld were able to garner a big list of nominations to their names.

Other exceptional shows competing this year include "The Handmaid's Tale", the first drama from streaming service Hulu to earn a best drama nomination; FX's "Feud: Bette and Joan"; Netflix's "The Crown"; FX's comedy "Atlanta"; and HBO's reliable victor, "Veep". Big Little Lies (HBO), Fargo, and The Night Of are following it with 16, 16, and 13 nominations.

The excitement over the Red Carpet comes as several nominees during this year's awards are known for their Red Carpet savvy, often wowing with impressive looks at almost every event they attend. Same with the case of Feud co-stars Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.

Coming to comedy categories, there are usual favorites like Veep and Modern Family. There are a record 12 black actors competing for lead or supporting honors in continuing comedy and drama series, including "Atlanta" creator and star Donald Glover.

Netflix, HBO, FX and Hulu each have at least one nominated show that half of - or more than half of - Americans have never heard of.

If you have plans to watch the Emmys on Sunday night, then this is the post for you.
