What to expect from this year's Emmy Awards

Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven in Season 1 of Stranger Things

This year's Emmys will be interesting, so you won't want to miss it.

The Emmys are a celebration of TV, "and the biggest television star of the previous year was Donald Trump", Colbert said at last week's ceremonial red-carpet rollout outside Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater.

CBS will live-stream the Emmys on Sunday night via CBS All Access. And while Game of Thrones didn't earn any nominations, other HBO shows did. TV and web series from leading channels will compete in many categories that will acknowledge the content and technical genius.

Stephen Colbert already has nine Emmys, but this Sunday will be the first time he'll be hosting the awards. The Emmy Awards are scheduled to be held on the night of September 17, which is Monday morning in India.

Only adding to the drama is that last year's two big winners - the one-season "The People v. O.J. Simpson" and HBO's dominant "Game of Thrones" - are not on the ballot, presenting an opportunity for other deserving shows to take home the hardware. In the drama category, the nominees include polar opposites "This Is Us", a heartfelt family drama, and the dystopian "The Handmaid's Tale", which some observers have called a reflection of our time.

NASCAR racing driver killed in plane crash
Christopher is one of two drivers to win the NASCAR Whelen All-Amercian Series national title and a touring series championship. NASCAR officials confirmed Christopher and the pilot died when the plane went down near the North Branford-Guilford border.

U2 cancels St. Louis show in wake of police shooting acquittal protests
A spokesperson for the Messina Touring Group said the Scottrade Center gig was nixed after consulting with authorities in St. Judge Wilson, in his 30-page ruling, said he was unconvinced by the suggestion that Stockley had planted the gun.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood will be at the event, even if they weren't nominated for an award.

The Duffer Brothers - Matt and Ross - grew up in Durham and are the creators of the new Netflix series "Stranger Things", which was nominated for 18 Emmys this year (the show also picked up five awards at the Creative Emmy Awards).

On Sunday, the comedian has another shot as "The Late Show" is up for Outstanding Variety Talk Series. Or will last year's victor Last Week Tonight With John Oliver pip James to the post once again? Oh! 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.

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. The late Carrie Fisher could actually win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in "Catastrophe". Just past year, the cast and crew won 12 different Emmys alone.

Tatiana Maslany was named Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for "Orphan Black".
