Additionally, we'll have our eyes on Sandra Oh, who could potentially make Emmy history for the second time this year if she nabs the award for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as MI-5 officer Eve Polastri on BBC America's critically acclaimed series, Killing Eve. When the nominations were announced in July, she became the first woman of Asian descent to be recognized in a lead actress category, in either comedy or drama, at the Emmys.

There are also plenty of Emmy first-timers this year, including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for Game of Thrones, Ricky Martin for AmericanCrime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Jimmi Simpson for Westworld and Issa Rae for Insecure.

See the full list of nominees here.

Have Some Emmy Awards Already Been Given Out?: Yes! The Television Academy kicked things off with the 70th Creative Arts Emmy Awards over the weekend, recognizing technical achievements on TV as well as handing out some acting, hosting and top program honors of the 2017-2018 season.

Going into Monday's awards show, the battle will surely be on between HBO and Netflix! HBO is currently ahead of Netflix by one Emmy win so far. It's interesting to note, however, that Netflix has received more Emmy nominations than HBO this year, ending a 17-year streak for the network. 

A telecast for the Creative Arts Emmy Awards will air Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX, but you can check out the complete list of winners here.
