Get the date, time, and network of the 2018 Emmys — and more.
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Monday, September 17, so it's time to gear up! Viewers should be ready and waiting for the show to air at 5 p.m. PST on NBC. The event will take place at Los Angeles's Microsoft Theater, and as usual, you can expect your favorite stars to shine bright. If you're a fan of the red carpet, ET will run its annual coverage, which viewers can watch live on Twitter.
This year's Emmy hosts are SNL's Michael Che and Colin Jost, and everyone at home is in for a treat this year when it comes to presenters. Per the Television Academy, Elisabeth Moss (who's up for Lead Actress in a Drama for her role as Offred in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale), American Horror Story: Apocalypse's Sarah Paulson, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, The Crown's Claire Foy (also up for Lead Actress in a Drama for The Crown), Sandra Oh (yet another Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee) and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, who's up for Outstanding Supporting Actress for the second year in a row, will all take part.
Other presenters include Queer Eye's Fab Five, Jimmy Kimmel, Ben Stiller, Alec Baldwin, Matt Smith, Patricia Arquette, Bob Odenkirk, Taraji P. Henson, Tina Fey, Erica Bana, Tracy Morgan, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Issa Rae, Tracy Morgan, Michael Douglas, Kate McKinnon, RuPaul, Benicio Del Toro, Connie Britton, Constance Wu, Samantha Bee, Hannah Gadsby, Andy Samberg, Angela Bassett, and Rachel Brosnahan.
If she wins, 14-year-old Brown will tie with Roxana Zal (who won in 1984 for her role in Something About Amelia) as the two youngest stars ever to receive the award.
Sandra Oh, who made history as the first Asian-American female nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama Series, is also a hot topic. She plays MI5 agent Eve Polastri in the BBC series, which is written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Game of Thrones is set to win big this year as the most-nominated show of 2018. The HBO fantasy series has 22 nominations, and is closely followed by Westworld, which brought in 21. SNL has 21 nods, The Handmaid's Tale brought in 20, Donald Glover's Atlanta has 16, and Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel sits at 14 nominations.
As Zimbio previously reported, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (a first-time Emmy nominee) and Peter Dinklage are both up for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for their roles in Game of Thrones.
Meanwhile, The Handmaid's Tale's Alexis Bledel, Yvonne Strahovski, and Ann Dowd are all up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
