Fans and dragons are bound to be pretty disappointed no matter what ends up being the big winner at Sunday night's Emmy ceremony.
"Game of Thrones" was not nominated for any trophies at the 2017 awards shows for one simple reason: It wasn't eligible.
To qualify for the 2017 Emmys, a program had to air episodes between June 1, 2016, and May 31, 2017. Even though the HBO fantasy behemoth did air four episodes of Season 6, it was already eligible for the 2016 Emmys.
It's less than 90 minutes until the ceremony begins, and the 2017 Emmys red carpet is heating up. Check out Sterling K. Brown, Julianne Hough and Rico Rodriguez below, and stick around for more red carpet pics to come.
Awards shows are notorious for not recognizing greatness in its midst, which is why HBO’s “The Wire” has no Emmys and “Citizen Kane” didn’t win the best picture Oscar.
So it’s not a complete surprise that the 2016 Emmy Awards featured an upset that makes sense on the outside, but may prove ridiculous in years to come.
In April 2016, Beyoncé released the visual album “Lemonade” with an accompanying 60-minute film that aired on HBO. The film was greeted with a wave of think pieces and accolades and would nab four Emmy nominations, including a nomination for directing.
They may be young, but the confident stars of "Stranger Things" put personality into their ensembles, bringing the statement jacket to the Emmy's red carpet.
Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) steps out in a purple brocade jacket, while co-star Noah Schapp (Will) goes for baroque gold bullion along his jacket's lapels and cuffs. Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) looks every bit the budding businessman in a three-piece suit and berry tie. Finn Wolfhard (Mike) kept to classic evening wear.
Not to be outdone? Celebrity stylist and host Brad Goreski in a silver lame jacket that can't be missed in the crowd.
It took a soft touch for a tough guy to finally win an Emmy.
Veteran actor Gerald McRaney took home the award for guest actor in a drama series at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Dr. Nathan Katowski on NBC's family drama "This Is Us."
The series gives audiences a look at a softer side of McRaney, whose storied career included multiple roles as military men, such as Marine Corps veteran Rick Simon on "Simon & Simon" and Major John D. MacGillis on "Major Dad," as well as a downright terrifying turn as George Hearst on HBO's "Deadwood."
The nominations for the 69th Emmys have plenty of fresh blood in marquee categories, including FX’s “Atlanta,” Hulu’s buzz-worthy “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Netflix’s “The Crown.”
But the new class will have plenty of old-school company as it competes against what might be called the unkillables — the awards-show equivalent of Godzilla and “Friday the 13th’s” Jason Voorhees. “Modern Family,” “House of Cards,” “Veep” and “Real Time With Bill Maher” have demonstrated again that they can count on love from Emmy voters despite their age and familiarity.
Some had predicted that this year might mark the end of the line for “Modern Family” and “House of Cards.” Even though the drama and comedy series categories list seven nominees, the tsunami of new shows, particularly on streaming services and cable, indicated these two veterans might be squeezed out.
Tracee Ellis Ross can make even the most mundane tasks seem fabulous. Inspired by Tituss Burgess’ similar Instagram song (which we, unfortunately, can’t embed here due to a few NSFW words at the end but, trust us, it’s hilarious.) Ross used her lovely pipes to keep fans updated on her Emmy road like some sort of wonderful animated Disney princess.
Fingers crossed these two spark a pampering trend. See how other celebs got ready for the big night including the one and only Oprah.
Jo Miller, showrunner and executive producer of “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” is nominated for four Emmys (and has already won one for the talk show's "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" special).
