TV's biggest night is coming up fast! The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards is on Sept. 17, but it's never too early to start preparing. In fact, you're probably already behind since Emmy season started in, like, January. But now is when things really heat up.

Nominations were announced July 13, with Saturday Night Live and Westworld leading the way with 22 each. Here's what's coming up next.

9 things we learned from this year's Emmy ballots

VOTING
When: Monday Aug. 14-Monday, Aug. 28 at 10 p.m. PT

Members get two weeks to vote for the winners online (click here for a breakdown of how voting works). So if you notice an influx of charming talk show appearances from nominees and FYCs ramping up during this timeframe, this is why.

CREATIVE ARTS EMMY AWARDS
When:
Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, Sept. 10

This is where a majority of the awards — mostly technical categories and all the guest acting ones — are handed out and it can give us an indication of what to expect on the main show. The ceremonies, which were split into two nights starting last year because of the large amount of categories, do not air live. An edited TV presentation will air Saturday, Sept. 16 at 8/7c on FXX.
