No host? No problem. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences watched the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences put on a successful Oscars telecast earlier this year without a host—a telecast that actually rebounded in the ratings—and are hoping lightning can strike twice. After years of viewership declines, it’s worth a shot.

Bolstering the broadcast is the return of Game of Thrones, which wasn’t present at last year’s awards ceremony. Though the final season proved divisive among fans and critics, the hit HBO series earned a record 32 nominations across the board. Fair or not, the cultural phenomenon fantasy series is the frontrunner to claim top honors tonight. Although the Best Drama category may end predictably, many of the night’s other prestigious races are caught in a dead heat. Any television fan should be excited to tune into the industry’s big night.

Here’s everything else you need know about the 2019 Emmy Awards including the major contenders and how to watch the show online.
