Ready for the Emmys? What to know before TV's biggest night

Sean Spicer speaks at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday Sept. 17 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles

The HBO show wasn't eligible for the Emmys this year because it premiered July 16, 2017 and the eligibility period for Emmy entries was from June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017.

With a wide range of familiar faces, newcomers, and a few surprises, Sunday's 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are determined to bring out the best of American television.

When and Where is it?

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.

It's time to roll out the red carpet, ladies and gents! News' Erin Lim. And of course "Emmys: The Show" will collect snaps from inside Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater throughout the event.

This year, the awards ceremony will be hosted by The Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Master of ceremonies Stephen Colbert could make history as the first person to win multiple awards while hosting.

Political and social discussion has taken center stage at many of 2017's award shows thus far, including the Oscars and, last month, the MTV Video Music Awards. More than once, Kimmel just says that he chooses "rule with fear", to which Colbert replies, "You could be president of the United States".

NBC's long-running sketch comedy "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's futuristic robot drama "Westworld" started the Emmy race tied as the nominations leaders with 22 apiece.

Plucky newcomer Riz Ahmed and fan favorite Benedict Cumberbatch are nominated in the same category this year, meaning we've got a veritable "Sophie's Choice" when it comes to choosing a victor.

There's also going to be a battle in the limited series categories. The last was Fox's "24" in 2006.

Expect Stranger Things to pick up Outstanding Drama Series and Atlanta to steal Outstanding Comedy Series in spite of Veep being the favourite.

This year Netflix had its most-ever nominations with 93, up from 54. The late Carrie Fisher could actually win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in "Catastrophe". "The biggest TV star of this year is undoubtedly Donald Trump".

And next year, yeah, "Game of Thrones" and the dragons are back. Just a year ago, the cast and crew won 12 different Emmys alone.
