Emmys: Follow Variety’s Live Blog

Welcome to Variety’s Emmys live blog! The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards is almost upon us. The ceremony, hosted by Stephen Colbert, was broadcast live on CBS beginning at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. Formal red carpet arrivals started at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET. Here’s how you can live stream the Emmys.

Follow along for behind-the-scenes action as Variety staff reports all day from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, providing the latest updates on the red carpet, inside the show, backstage, and at the hottest after-parties.

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” ruled the Emmys, taking nine awards, one more than HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which tied for second place with eight each.

With “Game of Thrones” ineligible for awards this year, five freshman shows made their way into the outstanding drama series race: “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us,” and “Westworld.” Veterans “Better Call Saul” and “House of Cards” rounded out the category. On the comedy side, newcomer “Atlanta” was up against “Black-ish,” “Master of None,” “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and “Veep.” “Handmaid’s Tale” ultimately won the drama prize, while “Veep” was victorious in the comedy category.
