Stars from all over the world will descend on the red carpet for the Emmy Awards Monday morning. TV and web series from leading channels will compete in many categories that will acknowledge the content and technical genius.

HBO is leading the race with 46 nominations in different categories while FX and Netflix have 27 nominations each. NBC and ABC follow them with 17 and 11 nominations respectively.

All eyes will be on shows like The Night Of, This Is Us and Big Little Lies that have been the talking points throughout the year.

Shows such as Transparent and The Handmaid’s Tale are also considered to be the front-runners in major categories.

The show, to be held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, will be hosted by Stephen Colbert.

Indian actor Priyanka Chopra, whose show Quantico isn’t nominated in any of the categories, is among the presenters. Other presenters include Mark Feuerstein (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later), Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts), Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead), Kaitlin Olson (The Mick), Jeremy Piven (Wisdom of the Crowd), Craig Robinson (Ghosted), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Anika Noni Rose (The Quad), and Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane).

The Emmys will be telecast live on CBS in the US. However, the Indian audiences don’t need to worry as Star World and Star World HD will start airing the event from 5 in the morning. The Emmys will be available as a video link on Hotstar from Monday at 8 pm.
