CBS late-night guru Stephen Colbert will host the Emmys for the first time on Sunday, following in the footsteps of ABC host Jimmy Kimmel, who emceed the affair a year ago. "If you like this, stick around because I'm going to go re-grout the bathrooms right after this". In 2013, Netflix became the first streaming service to win a Primetime Emmy Award.

In addition to seeing all the TV stars, I'm excited to see Stephen Colbert as the host. The network's latest buzzy program, "Westworld", is tied with "Saturday Night Live" for the most nominations with 22.

According to Variety, Netflix is leading the pack with 91 nominations. After last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys ceremonies, the score is Netflix 16 to HBO's 19. Although "Modern Family" may have dominated this category prior to "Veep" - winning five awards between 2010 and 2014 - the pinnacle of the show's success may now have waned. "Orange Is the New Black", "The Crown" and "House of Cards" are up for awards also.

Plucky newcomer Riz Ahmed and fan favorite Benedict Cumberbatch are nominated in the same category this year, meaning we've got a veritable "Sophie's Choice" when it comes to choosing a victor.
