It's that time of year again — time to honor all the standout performances and shows we've come to know, love, and watch this past year. The nominations for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are here, but before we get to actually celebrating, how can you watch the nomination announcement online?
Every year the Emmys pick a duo to read the nominations as they're announced, and this year that honor goes to Ken Jeong and D'Arcy Carden, and depending on how their chemistry plays out during the nominations announcement, we might be asking for them to get their own starring series (maybe one where they solve crimes together!). While the nomination event is usually pretty straight-faced, you can count on them throwing in a few jokes here and there.
The actual announcement is closed off to the public and only those who apply for credentials and are approved get to sit in the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center, but that doesn't mean you can't watch them yourself in the comforts of your own home.
How to watch the Emmys Nominations
This is super easy, because there's only one way, and one way only, to watch the nominations. The Television Academy will host a livestream of the event right on its website and also on YouTube. The official telecast for the nominations doesn't begin until 8:30 a.m. PDT, on Tuesday, July 16. You can also watch the livestream below.
Or follow what people are tweeting about
If you don't have the energy to navigate over to the official livestream, the next best thing to actually watching it yourself is just seeing what people on Twitter will be tweeting about. There's sure to be surprises, suspense, and plenty of drama, and people are going to want to talk about it in 240 characters or less.
The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Fox.
