TV and web series from leading channels will compete in many categories that will acknowledge the content and technical genius. Colbert finds himself in rare air as he will be both a host and a nominee at this year's awards. The Emmy Awards are scheduled to be held on the night of September 17, which is Monday morning in India. It's nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, and actors Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour and Shannon Purser are nominated in their respective categories. Stalwarts like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones aren't in the running this year - the former ended before last year's awards, and the latter didn't air its season within the eligibility window.
The two most nominated series this year are Sky Atlantic's sci-fi hit Westworld and NBC's flagship live show Saturday Night Live. "Every race, every category, - from drama to comedy to acting - these are the most competitive races we've ever seen, and it's impossible to predict who's going to win". After last year's memorable hosting by Zimmy Kimmel, this year the event will be hosted by none other than Stephen Colbert, the ace talk show host from the television world.
