The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards is fast approaching! The year’s top television actors and actresses will flock to Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater this weekend for the annual awards show, honoring the best of the best on the small screen.
Stars like Viola Davis, Priyanka Chopra and Liev Schreiber are scheduled to attend, and the event will be hosted by comedian and late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As always, the Emmys will be a night you don’t want to miss. The festivities kick off Sunday, Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC. The Emmys are scheduled to run until 11 p.m. EDT, but they sometimes end up going a little longer. The awards show also won’t be tape delayed meaning viewers on the West Coast can watch the show at 5 p.m. PDT.
Even though the show will air live on ABC, there are several options for people to tune in online and on their mobile devices. ABC.com will live stream the 2016 Emmys on its website, starting at 8 p.m. EDT. Viewers will also be able to watch the ceremony on their cell phones via the ABC mobile app. However, in order to watch the Emmys on ABC.com or the app you will need your cable provider log in information.
For those hoping to catch some backstage action, head over to Emmys.com Sunday for Backstage LIVE!, an interactive live stream with 15 different cameras so viewers can watch everything that is happening behind-the-scenes. Last year, there were different Backstage LIVE! cameras along the red carpet, one in the audience, several backstage, one by the trophy table, a camera for the host, another in the press room and more. This year, Backstage LIVE! starts at 6 p.m. EDT/3 p.m. PDT on Emmys.com.
The Emmy Awards are shaping up to a big night. The show will have over 27 categories, handing out statues for best comedy series, best actress in a drama series, best limited series, outstanding variety talk series, and more.
