Playing Emmys by the Numbers: Everything You Need to Know About TV's Biggest Night

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards are this weekend and we have everything you need to know before tuning in!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg is hosting the award show live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, and he was there as 25,000 square feet of red carpet was rolled out on Wednesday morning.

"It's going to be completely different than any other year," Samberg told ET's Nischelle Turner. "I'm going to come flying in in a jet pack."

With 95 acting nominees, one of the biggest challenges inside the theater will be organizing the seating chart and their plus ones. There's no doubt about who's getting first preference, though. The award show, airing on Fox, will have its current king and queen (Empire stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson) seated front and center.

Just as Empire has brought in big audiences for Fox, the awards show is also expected to draw eyeballs with help from its NFL lead-in.

"I'm hoping the second game goes into overtime," producer Don Mischer said. "If that happens we inherit an audience of 30 million people."

As for the awards themselves, the 120 statuettes have to fly more than 1,700 miles from Chicago where they're made. Turner was the only journalist aboard with the golden trophies, which were already engraved with the winners' names.
