'Saturday Night Live' delivered laughs, now it's looking for Emmys

The hiring of Stephen Colbert as host of the 2017 Emmy Awards broadcast all but guaranteed a night of hyper-focus not on the arts, not on artists - but on President Donald Trump. It was being live televised so I don't know. "I mean, nearly everyone there you've had on your show".

Will the show stream live?

The Emmy's "Backstage LIVE!" show will also be live streaming on the Emmy's website, as well as Facebook Live, for viewers who are looking for an all-access look at the awards ceremony.

In addition to seeing all the TV stars, I'm excited to see Stephen Colbert as the host.

"I've never been the host of something that I was also nominated for at the same time and if I don't win the night's a disaster", said Colbert.

For contenders in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category, dethroning Julia Louis-Dreyfus from her long-held top spot will be much more hard. It's irrelevant, of course, because both of them are up against Robert bloody de Niro. Going into this year Netflix has only won 21 Emmys, while "Game of Thrones" alone has 38 wins, the all-time series leader. We kind of made everything up as we went along, through our tears. Baldwin is facing off against "Modern Family's" Ty Burrell and the "SNL" trio are competing against "Veep's" Anna Chlumsky.

Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon are leading the pack in nominations with 125 noms. Could its winning streak continue? But then, "The Handmaid's Tale" feels strikingly relevant, "Westworld" is beautifully assembled and two-time best-drama nominee "Better Call Saul" is overdue for a win.

Netflix could triumph in the category with "The Crown", its historical series based on the reign of Elizabeth II.

Indian actor Priyanka Chopra, whose show Quantico isn't nominated in any of the categories, is among the presenters. Alexis Bledel already snagged the win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her appearance on the show.
