The 71st annual Emmy Awards is happening this weekend, and there’ll be plenty of interest on both sides of the Atlantic in watching America’s biggest TV awards show.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2019 Emmys, including when it’s happening, who’s been nominated, and how to watch it live from anywhere in the world.

When are the Emmy Awards?

The 2019 Emmys will take place Sunday 22 September, and the ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, with things kicking off at around 5pm local time - so that’s 8pm on the east coast, and 1am Monday morning here in the UK.

For international broadcast times, head to the Emmys' site, which lists timings across Africa, Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

How to watch the Emmys on TV

If you’re in the US, watching along live is pretty easy: just tune into Fox from 5pm PT or 8pm ET. If you're in the UK or elsewhere it's trickier, as the Emmys aren't broadcast everywhere - so check out our dedicated advice to watching the show from abroad.

How to stream the Emmys online

If you’d rather watch from your phone, tablet, or computer, that’s pretty easy too - you should be able to watch it live through Fox online and the Fox Now mobile app (iOS/Android), though you will need a login from your cable network provider.

There are a few TV streaming app alternatives you could use to stream Fox content, such as Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, AT&T TV Now, Fubo.tv, YouTube TV and Sling. Keep in mind some of these services are geographically restricted, which means you may need a VPN for access (see how below).

How to watch from the UK or abroad

If you’re not in the US - for example, in the UK like us - things are ever so slightly trickier. While you can catch up on the Emmys in the UK through Sky TV on Monday night at 11pm, the awards ceremony won’t be broadcast on UK TV, and the Fox website won’t let you stream the channel from a local IP address. This means you’ll need a VPN if you want to follow along live - which as a reminder, means from 1am Monday morning for the UK.

A VPN lets you use the internet while masking your true location information, meaning that you can trick the Fox website or app into thinking you’re browsing from the US.

There are free VPNs, but they’re usually slow and unreliable - not ideal for live streaming TV. Instead we’d recommend you pay for one, or at least use the free trial of a paid VPN. Our top recommendation is NordVPN, but check out our guide to the best VPNs for streaming if you want to see some of the other great alternatives.

Once you’ve chosen a VPN, just install it and turn it on, making sure to choose a server based in the US. Then either open up your web browser and head to Fox, which should now let you stream the Emmys live, or access your choice of the Fox app or other US services including Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV.

Who is hosting?

The Emmys will not have a host this time round. This is not the first time to happen, however. The Emmys did not have a host in 2003, 1998, or 1975.

Which shows got nominated?

Surprising absolutely no-one, Game of Thrones led the nominations this year with 32 nods, part of an overall tally of 137 for HBO. Though Netflix isn't too far behind, with 117. Perhaps the big surprise is that Beyoncé has done so well, with six nominations for her Netflix movie Homecoming.

We’ve gathered up the main nominees right here, so read through to find out which of your favourites made the cut, and which were unfairly snubbed.
