Tune into CBS for the 69th annual Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 17th at 5 PM PT/8 PM EST to see if this year's host will be taking home any gold. To determine the TV shows with the most Emmy wins of all time, 24/7 Wall St. calculated the total Emmy award wins for all categories since 1949. Going into this year Netflix has only won 21 Emmys, while "Game of Thrones" alone has 38 wins, the all-time series leader.
Chopra is quite often invited to the award shows and parties and she has attended nearly all the top global award shows. Freshman sci-fi drama Stranger Things definitely helped pad the total by picking up 18 nominations, while historical drama The Crown earned another 13 of its own. Since 2015, the ceremony's star category has been dominated by Game of Thrones.
They've got noms for Best Limited Series, and Best Limited Series Actress for both Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. According to Fox News, "Christopher Jackson, who played George Washington in the Broadway smash "Hamilton", is slated to perform an In Memoriam tribute, the network revealed". Or maybe you're more into the drama of The Handmaid's Tale, in which case, we think they deserve the win, too.
Colbert has considerable history with the Emmys, considering his previous talk program, "The Colbert Report", won nine Emmys in as many years. "We are storytellers: The story we are telling is what happened on television this year". And since late night's Stephen Colbert is hosting, you can nearly guarantee that politics will take center stage Sunday night. "Milo Ventimiglia understands how to connect with people through this medium". That's not what we cared about.
Faced with "Veep", the competition seems relatively lightweight this year. It missed the Emmy deadline and, thus, isn't up for any awards this year.
For those planning to watch the Emmy Awards this Sunday, CBS and the Television Academy have put together a slew of different ways for you to experience the event.
