The live, virtual ceremony begins at 8:30 a.m. Pacific time. It will be streamed on the Emmys website and on the Television Academy’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

The early-morning festivities honoring the best and brightest in TV will be hosted by “Saturday Night Live” star Leslie Jones. Jones will be joined by “Inventing Anna” star Laverne Cox, “Central Park’s” Josh Gad, “Perry Mason’s” Tatiana Maslany and Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma.
