Are you ready for the 2017 Emmys? The show that will celebrate the best in television for the past year will air on the CBS network, Sunday, September 17, 2017, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT. While there is plenty of anticipation surrounding the Emmys award show, you won’t have to wait too long for the excitement to begin.
People TV and Entertainment Weekly have collaborated to bring a live streaming, pre-Red Carpet show to the masses. There will be multiple ways to watch the Red Carpet pre-show live online, including a live stream on Twitter that you may watch via the link to People TV below. You can also download the free People TV app and watch the Emmys Red Carpet pre-show that way.
The Emmys Red Carpet is a time of high glamour and fashion trends will be made. The stars who walk the Red Carpet will be talked about for days to come and fashion critiques will carefully study every aspect of their attire, from the tiniest accessory to hair and makeup to see whether they were a fashion faux pas or success.
The Red Carpet pre-show will be your chance to get the backstage scoop on all the looks the stars wear as they make their entrance to the Microsoft Theater located in Los Angeles, California.
The Emmys Red Carpet pre-show begins at 6 p.m ET/3 p.m CT and runs for two hours, concluding at the start of the 2017 Emmys.

Emmy award winner Stephen Colbert and host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will serve as Master of Ceremonies. We can expect plenty of political talk during the show and there’s no question that those who support President Trump will take offense.
Stephen Colbert has been one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics and actors like Saturday Night Live’s Alec Baldwin has been nominated for an Emmy. Baldwin spent much of SNL’s previous season impersonating President Trump to a tee and his portrayal didn’t do the president any favors.
There is no question that we should expect plenty of political talks and Trump bashing at the Emmys.
Also, many older women (over the age of 50) have been nominated for Emmys. While the award show will air during a heated political climate, it’s also a time to celebrate the accomplishments older women have made in television.
Both Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin have been nominated for Emmys for their work in Grace and Frankie. The well-deserved nominations follow a pay dispute several years ago where both women, though they were the stars of the show, were paid less than their male counterparts.
Older women are proving that you don’t need to be in your 20s to be a successful actress and many fans are excited that the Television Academy recognized that.
Are you going to watch the Emmys on television? Will you tune in two hours earlier for the live streaming Red Carpet pre-show?
