Is everyone ready to talk a little bit of the Primetime Emmys? We certainly hope so, given that this is going to be the topic du jour of this morning! We’ll be chatting not only nominees, but some of the notable snubs and surprises on the night. The link that you should follow throughout the morning is the one over here.
As for when exactly the ceremony is happening and where you can watch it, we’ve got some answers for you here! It begins at 8:30 a.m. Pacific time (11:30 if you’re on the East Coast), and you can live-stream the entire event over on the official Emmy website. It’s a nice change for the announcement to be later in the morning; until last year, the awards-show tended to do the ceremony bright and early (think before 6:00 a.m. on the West Coast), that way to ensure that the news of the nominees spread throughout the news community. That’s hardly an issue in the internet age.
The ceremony will be hosted by “black-ish” star and hopeful nominee Anthony Anderson alongside Lauren Graham, who will be appearing in “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” over on Netflix later this year. (Imagine if Graham actually gave you the show’s famous final four words on accident here — we can dream!)
Following the nominations, we’ll have much more discussion! Just remember that if your show doesn’t get any love, the Emmys don’t take away from how good anything is. Sometimes, everything from politics to lack of voter awareness can cause a snub to happen. Just remember that Steve Carell never won for “The Office,” and they only recently discovered that Tatiana Maslany exists as a performer.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll break down more of the individual categories, and talk who the favorites are to win. The Emmys themselves take place September 18 on ABC.
