When and how to watch The Emmys:
2018 Emmy nominations
HBO's "Game of Thrones," which was ineligible for last year's Emmy season, leads the pack this year with 22 nods. "Westworld" and "Saturday Night Live" tie for second place, with 21 nominations each. Newcomer nominees include "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "GLOW" and "Barry."
There are also plenty of Emmy first-timers this year, including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for Game of Thrones, Ricky Martin for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Issa Rae for Insecure.
Potentially historic Emmys – what to expect
Sandra Oh made history when the "Killing Eve" star became the first Asian actress to be nominated for a leading role. She might also become the first Asian actress to win for a leading role for her portrayal of MI-5 officer Eve Polastri the BBC series, Killing Eve.
Who's hosting The Emmys?
Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 2018 Emmys. The rotating schedule of the televised Emmy ceremony between major broadcast networks allows each of them to use the host's job to highlight a show or performers. NBC has chosen to feature "SNL" on the heels of a resurgence in its ratings due largely in part from poking fun at the Trump administration. CBS "Late Show" host Steven Colbert hosted the 69th Emmy Awards.
Jost and Che are head writers on NBC's long-running sketch comedy show and perform as the anchors of the weekly "Weekend News" segment. Though many SNL alumni have hosted the Emmys, Jost and Che are the first current SNL cast members to host since Eddie Murphy hosted in 1983.
