  • Emmy Awards 2017: Where and how to watch Emmys 2017 live online

If you love watching TV as much as I do, then the Emmy Awards is a celebration.

The FX limited series "The People v. O.J Simpson" was the big victor previous year, taking home five awards including Outstanding Lead Actor for Courtney B. Vance, and Outstanding Lead Actress for Sarah Paulson.

The annual television awards will air this Sunday, and there are a lot of great shows you still need to watch. To see the full list of nominations ahead of the show, look here.

Dancing With the Stars' lead choreographer, Mandy Moore took home top honors for her craft on the ABC dancing competition.

But if Netflix has the upper hand on long-form, HBO still rules in the mini-series category, with The Night Of and Big Little Lies going against FX's Fargo and Feud. Stephen Colbert is set to host.

And there's no short of hot contenders to take its place.

With drama category favorite Game of Thrones ineligible this year due to its summer start date, the race is wide open. The HBO show wasn't eligible for the Emmys this year because it premiered July 16, 2017 and the eligibility period for Emmy entries was from June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017.

As for the nominees, a number of noteworthy newcomers-including This Is Us, The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, Big Little Lies and Westworld-are nominated for multiple awards and favored to win in one (if not more) categories. 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. The sci-fi saga is up for 22 trophies, including "Best Drama". He's essentially molded his show into an extension of his former left-leaning Comedy Central series, "The Colbert Report".

"House of Cards" (Netflix): "Is "House of Cards" Season 5 the worst-reviewed season ever nominated for Best Drama Series?". Should Riz win for his critically acclaimed performance in HBO's The Night Of? The show's star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, could also go down in Emmy history by bagging her sixth consecutive title.
