LOS ANGELES (AP) - What do computer hackers, the divisive USA presidential campaign and racial tensions have to do with the Emmys?
The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, air at 7 p.m. Sunday on ABC (Ch. 27.) If you want a preview of the glamour, tune in at 6 p.m. for "Countdown to the Emmy Awards: Red Carpet Live".
She also said FX's acclaimed spy drama "The Americans" could pull some surprises at Sunday's ceremony, hosted by funnyman Jimmy Kimmel.
-Who was not nominated for lead actress in a drama series?
"Games of Thrones", the fantasy saga based on George R.R. Martin's novels, received a total of 12 awards Sunday and at last weekend's technical arts ceremony for a cumulative 38, besting "Frasier" by one to claim most prime-time series awards ever. HBO's sharp political satire Veep once again took home the award for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards.
FX's "The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story", went into Sunday's show with 22 nominations, including multiple acting nods, writing, and best limited series.
Transparent is up against last year's victor Veep for most outstanding comedy series. But who really deserves this Emmy Award?
He called for Hollywood to make him the last non-transgender actor to get such a role. Americans have assumed it's 07.08.09 (July 8th, 2009), but Williams reminded interviewers the Brits do their dates the other way, so it's actually August 7th, 2009-the day she and Sophie both learned they'd gotten their roles. "The award has continued to lose its influence on TV viewers with less than one in 10 Americans being more inclined to watch a series because it has won an Emmy". Yes, while we wondered if American Crime Story is overrated Emmy Awards, one of the voters seem to have chose to tell the truth and nothing but the truth about the nominations this year.

Supporting Actress, Comedy Series: Kate McKinnon, "Saturday Night Live".
Mischer, who carries an executive producer credit for the 2004 Democratic National Convention, was clearly referring to "politics" in the specific sense of partisan competition for public office. "There have been Emmys in the past when things turned political, and once that door is opened, people start to follow suit".
Prior to the actual awards show, there will be special red carpet coverage. Jeffrey Tambor's trophy as top comedy actor for "Transparent" also was his second.
It is not a coincidence that, given the fracturing of the traditional television landscape, the majority of nominations honor non-broadcast network programming.
The actor, Key, will be pushed by Louis Anderson, who plays a woman in Baskets.
The Julia Louis-Dreyfus vehicle beat out ABC comedies Black-ish and Modern Family, fellow HBO comedy Silicon Valley, Amazon's Transparent, and Netflix's Master of None and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. As a reality TV producer in "UnReal," Zimmer, getting her first Emmy nod for the show's first season, was an unstoppable force, enabling bad behavior for terrific television, her unmerciful mask slipping just enough to see the damage that drives her ambition. That sharpens the selection process and perhaps affects past winners who managed to collect enough second-place votes to overcome the competition.
