The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards recognising excellence in television will be held in a grand ceremony on Sunday.  

The much-televised ceremony will take place this year at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California. 

The award show will be hosted by The Late Show host Stephen Colbert who is expected to bring his brand of critical comedy to the stage. Interestingly, Colbert's show is also nominated under the category Variety Talk Series.
