Is this the year an African American woman will finally win an Emmy for lead actress in a drama? Will Jon Hamm finally get a best-actor win for his role as Don Draper on “Mad Men”? Will Lena Dunham show up in a frothy ombre dress? How will first-time host Andy Samberg do? So many questions, and we can hardly contain our excitement.
We’ll be live blogging the 67th Emmy Awards on Sunday, starting with the red carpet at 2:30 p.m. PDT, chronicling (and yes, sometimes obsessing over) the wins, losses, memorable moments, best and worst dressed and more at latimes.com/emmys. We’ll also be tweeting @latimesent and Snapchatting; find us by searching the username LosAngelesTimes.
We hope you’ll join us!
A few of our players covering Sunday’s Emmy Awards:
“I’m very excited to watch each winner take the stage and then graciously concede every single Emmy to the cast and crew of ‘The Wire.’”
Who: Amy Kaufman, writer, will be on the red carpet and at the ceremony.
“I'll be tweeting from inside the Microsoft Theater, letting you know who's sitting next to who, how host Andy Samberg is faring with the audience and which dress looks prettiest in person.”
Who: Tre’vell Anderson, writer, will be on the red carpet tweeting and Snapchatting.
“Any award show without Beyonce is just a room full of nobodies, unless, of course, you have Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) in the building. Here’s to hoping one of them makes history as the first black woman (EVER!) to win an Emmy for lead actress in a drama.”
Who: Yvonne Villarreal, writer, will be reporting from the press room.
“I need someone to hold me if Jon Hamm becomes the Susan Lucci of the Primetime Emmys. Also, if you're one of those people who watch the Emmys while scrolling through Twitter and Instagram, it is my sole purpose to serve you. I'll be in the press room giving snapshots of what you don't see on TV.”
Who: Nardine Saad, writer, will be reporting from the press room.
“I'm pumped about the fun, fashion and flubs! I'll be in the press room, where winners will be adding to (or amending) their acceptance speeches, sharing quotes and pictures that you won't see on TV.”
Who: Saba Hamedy, writer, will be reporting from the press room.
"I'm excited for Andy Samberg jokes and a potential Jon Hamm "Mad Men" win. I'd also be happy if "Game of Thrones" snagged some more awards. But like Jon Snow, I know nothing -- it's all in the hands of the Emmy voters!"
Who: Booth Moore, fashion critic
“I'm looking forward to the stylish ‘Mad Men’ cast's Emmys red carpet swan song, and I always love to see what fashion pros Claire Danes, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jane Fonda are wearing. Plus, the fashion industry is crazy about ‘Empire's’ Cookie, Taraji P. Henson, so she's one to watch. On the men's side, Alan Cumming and David Oyelowo always dress interestingly.”
Who: Glenn Whipp, writer
“I'm looking forward to seeing Jon Hamm finally winning an Emmy. I mean ... he is going to win this year, right?”
Who: Libby Hill, writer
“I'm looking forward to watching because when TV is your obsession, the Emmys are the high holy days.”
Who: Meredith Blake, writer
“Looking forward to seeing whether Jon Hamm will finally take home an Emmy.”
Who: Stephen Battaglio, writer
“I will be looking forward to the inevitable but necessary Donald Trump gags from host Andy Samberg.”
"I'm looking forward to Jon Hamm finally winning for lead actor in a drama -- or, even better, the inevitable Internet uprising if he doesn't."
Who: Christie D’Zurilla, writer, and Sunday’s live blog anchor.
Who: Alice Short, assistant managing editor for features
“I’m tweeting the Emmys because the opportunity to observe -- and join -- the conversation about the intersection of celebrity and style is simply irresistible.”
Who: John Corrigan, assistant managing editor for arts and entertainment
Who: Laurie Ochoa, arts and entertainment editor
