EMMY AWARDS 2017 Winners List, Updated Live

It’s safe to say a number of folks here at Nerdist are into television. We watch, we theorize, we write, and if it’s Game of Thrones, we theorize some more. That’s why we’re keeping our eyes on the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by Stephen Colbert tonight on CBS. It’s time to look back at the small screen offerings we’ve been blessed with in the past year and see which series and people receive awards. Entertainment like the Stranger Things kids singing “Uptown Funk” is the icing on the Emmys cake.

Who will win? Maybe Westworld will take home best drama. Maybe Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will claim top marks in the comedy category. Maybe Claire Foy will receive a nod for her performance as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown. We’ll find out soon enough and we’ll be updating the list of winners live. The winner for each category will be in bold below.We’re also live tweeting and GIFing the event, so follow us on Twitter to keep up with every exciting moment from the Emmys.
