The 69th annual Emmy Awards are almost here! After a lot of campaigning — the most intense campaigning ever, in fact, which had networks like Netflix renting out a 24,000 sq. ft. space to show off its programming and Hulu sending "handmaids" to walk the streets of Los Angeles -- the time has come for television's finest talents to stand on stage and pretend they didn't have a speech ready.

The Emmys are — spoiler alert — a huge deal for actors, producers, writers and the throngs of people who make the shows we love; but it's also a huge production in itself. Here are some of the eye-popping numbers that offer just a tiny peek into all the tears, sweat and money that got poured into what you'll see this year.

1: Number of people under 18 nominated, namely, Millie Bobby Brown, who could be the youngest winner ever at 13.

2: Number of new categories this year, including Outstanding Music Supervision (which honors contributions made by music supervisors) and Outstanding Casting in a Reality Series (for casting directors who assemble casts for reality shows).

231: Number of nominations Saturday Night Live has received in its history, making it the most nominated show ever.
