The latest batch of TV shows set to do battle at this years Emmys are on the cusp of being announced.

Later today, the titles in contention for trophies at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced in Hollywood.

But which shows in particular will be named? And what time can you expect to see the nominations flooding in?

Below are all the details you need.

How to watch

The Television Academy is hosting a livestream of the event on its website as well as on YouTube.

What time?

They’ll be announced at 8.30am PDT, which is 4.30pm in the UK.

Who is announcing?

This year’s task falls to Ken Jeong and D’Arcy Carden, known by many as Janet from The Good Place.

What will be nominated?

That’s the million dollar question. Of course many are expecting Game of Thrones to be the frontrunner – and indeed it probably will be – but let’s not forget the eighth and final season had many critics. Its closest competitors in the Drama category include Better Call Saul, This Is Us, Killing Eve and Pose.

Many are also hoping HBO breakout Succession will get a nomination, although it could be it’ll have to settle for recognition in the acting categories (here’s looking at you, Kieran Culkin).

It’s worth noting that The Handmaid’s Tale, The Crown and Westworld – normally surefire guarantees – are exempt from this year’s round while House of Cards is expected to be shunned due to the fact it botcherd its final season.

In the Comedy category, it’s all about Veep, which will no doubt score Julia Louis-Dreyfus a nomination and win in the Leading Actress category.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is waiting in the wings to continue improving its nomination count while British TV viewers will be keeping their fingers crossed for Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, which has finally caught attention in the US.

Then there's the hugely acclaimed Chernobyl, which will undoubtedly lead the pack alongside Sharp Objects and Netflix series When They See Us for nominations.

When will the Emmys take place?

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will air 22 September at about 1am UK time.
