The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place this Sunday, September 17, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and we're already at the edge of our seats.

It seems Hollywood never learns, even after the broadcast of the Academy Awards in February drew the smallest audience for the Oscars since 2008. Both of those shows are contenders for the Best Drama Series crown, while Master of None and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will compete for Best Comedy Series, giving Netflix solid chances in two of Sunday night's biggest categories. 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.

Previous year too she had participated in the Emmy awards in her hot red outfit and found flirting with Tom Hiddleston. It was only a year ago when Priyanka Chopra made her debut at the Emmys, which is television's equivalent of the Oscars.

Some of the shows and actors up for awards this year are brand new to the Emmys. "If you like this, stick around because I'm going to go re-grout the bathrooms right after this". Subscribers can also stream the show via E! Now. Despite its impressive track record, Co-Executive Producer and Host Phil Keoghan still recalls the moment he found out he was an Emmy Award nominee for the very first time. The comedian has won three awards for "The Daily Show" and six awards for "The Colbert Report". Besides having Colbert host the show, the Emmys are jam-packed with comedic nominations. However, since there will be a little more than a year gap before the next and final season starts, Emmy nominations shouldn't be a problem in 2019.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the heavy favorite for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy for "Veep" - an award she has won the each of the last five years. You know he cares. The series, which stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, could become the first network show in 11 years to win the category. If he wins, he will join a select few who have taken home a trophy while hosting the show. Could its winning streak continue?

At the outset, "Westworld" had better odds simply because "SNL" has multiple actors in the same categories, e.g.

Pricing for these services varies, but generally ranges from $30 to $50 per month and normally includes a host of other channels.

Tatiana Maslany was named Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for "Orphan Black".

Amazon rounds out the list with 16 nominations, the entertainment outlet writes, for "Catastrophe" and "Transparent". While fans are still coming off of their season seven high, they shouldn't expect Jon Snow or Daenerys to snag a statue. "Game of Thrones" won the award for Outstanding Drama Series in both 2015 and 2016, guaranteeing a new victor for the award this year.
