The 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are doing a thing the Emmys do from time to time and are taking place on a Monday instead of a Sunday. Monday, Sept. 17, to be exact, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 5 p.m. local time (that's 8 p.m. ET if you can't do the math). The show will air live on NBC and stream on NBC.com.
Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will host. Announced presenters include Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tina Fey and Fresh off the Boat and Crazy Rich Asians' Constance Wu.
Red carpet coverage starts at 4:30/3:30c on E!, with kickoff at 6/5c. Red carpet coverage will be streaming on the People TV app, People.com, and EW.com. NBC's red carpet coverage will be quick, from 7:30/6:30c until showtime.
Major Emmy races this year include last year's Drama Series winner The Handmaid's Tale defending its title against Game of Thrones, which wasn't eligible last year, and a wide open Comedy Series race due to three-time reigning champ Veep taking the year off. (The eligibility period for the Emmys was June 1, 2017 to May 31, 2018.) Game of Thrones leads all nominees with 22 nods, and it already won seven at the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month.
The 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards air Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC. If you have a cable login, you can stream on NBC.com or the NBC app. If not, you can stream via Hulu with Live TV.
