It’s television’s biggest night! The 68th annual Emmy Awards will be live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 18, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Ahead of the show, TV’s best and brightest will don their finest attire and pose for pictures during ABC’s Red Carpet Live broadcast, which begins at 7 p.m. ET.

One-time host Jimmy Kimmel, who’s nominated for Outstanding Variety Talk Series, will return to the Emmys stage after hosting the 64th Annual Emmy Awards back in 2012. He follows last year’s master of ceremonies, Andy Samberg.

The show has a star-studded lineup of presenters this year, including quadruple nominee Aziz Ansari, triple nominee James Corden and previous Emmy winner and nominee Larry David.

Other presenters include Kristen Bell, Anthony Anderson, Liev Schreiber, Taraji P. Henson and Laverne Cox.

Game of Thrones roped in a whopping 23 nominations — the most overall — and is expected to collect quite a few wins for its sixth season. The show is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, and several of its actors also received nominations. Peter Dinklage, as Tyrion Lannister, is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, along with Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow. Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, is up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, as is Emilia Clarke, as Daenerys Targaryen, and Maisie Williams, as Arya Stark.

Other heavily nominated series include The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which received 22 nominations, and Fargo, which received 18.
