Emmys 2017: Who Should Win Every Major Award (And Who Actually Will)

Emmys 2017: Who Should Win Every Major Award (And Who Actually Will)

The show will be hosted by Stephen Colbert, who has plenty of material to draw from given the country's current state.

On this Sunday night's show, look especially for these three categories, in which the brothers are the named nominees: Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Writing.

Carrie Fisher received a posthumous Emmy nomination as Best Comedy Guest Actress for her work on the Amazon streaming sitcom "Catastrophe" this year, but last Sunday night at the Creative Arts Awards the actress lost the award to Melissa McCarthy for her popular appearances as former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on "Saturday Night Live". Transparent, Big Little Lies, The Handmaid's Tale and This is Us are considered to be the front-runners in major categories. Over seven decades, 35 shows have won at least 15 Emmy awards. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for this same role. However, she hasn't been nominated for an award this year. When a first-time nominee seemingly comes out of nowhere to win, as Rami Malek of "Mr. Robot" and Louie Anderson of "Baskets" did past year, it can cast a spell over the night.

Mr Robot's Rami Malek is the first non-white actor to win the Emmys' Best Actor in a Drama Series category in 18 years.

New episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live air weeknights at 11:35 PM EST on ABC; Colbert's Late Show airs in the same timeslot over on CBS. Piner lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Shelly Gossman.

Remember that extra-long "Game of Thrones" break between seasons six and seven, those boring months when you started biting your nails and took up fidget-spinning?
