With so many nominees in so many categories over 69 years, Emmys statistics can be sliced any number of ways. Here, for those who might need a quick factoid to toss out during a commercial break, are nine that might come in handy. 

27: Categories to be recognized during Sunday night's show.

111: Nominations for HBO, the network that got the most.

22: Nominations each for "Saturday Night Live" and "Westworld," the shows leading the pack.

6: Episodes submitted by each show for consideration in the drama series and comedy series categories.

41: Categories recognized during last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys.

44: Emmys won by CBS in 1974, a number that stands as the most for a single network in a single year.

5: Wins each for "SNL," "Westworld" and "Stranger Things" at the 69th Creative Arts Emmy Awards last weekend.

38: Emmys won over the years by "Game of Thrones," which has the most of any series ever (but won't be adding any tonight).

9: Emmys given in 2000 to "The West Wing," which holds the record for most trophies won by a series in its first season.
