Who's presenting at the Emmy Awards? The show and its leading lady, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who will probably walk away with her sixthOutstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy award on Sunday) are darlings of the Television Academy, and political humor is more necessary and appreciated than ever in the tumultuous year that is 2017. Two-time Emmy champ "Game of Thrones" is out of the running this year because of a later broadcast date for its seventh season.
Here, everything you need to know about Sunday night's awards.

"I'll never forget the first time that Amazing Race had been nominated for an Emmy", said Keoghan. With a year so jam-packed of some of the best entertainment seen in years (think Twin Peaks: the Return, The Handmaid's Tale), it's going to be a tough one when it comes down to deciding just who goes home with an Emmy. The last was Fox's "24" in 2006. Both of those shows are contenders for the Best Drama Series crown, while Master of None and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will compete for Best Comedy Series, giving Netflix solid chances in two of Sunday night's biggest categories. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for this same role. The NBC hit is the first network drama nominated since "The Good Wife" in 2011, while a potential victory would make it the first network show to win Best TV Drama since "24" back in 2006.
Some Emmy awards in smaller categories have already been given out. The late Carrie Fisher could actually win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in "Catastrophe".
