The Emmy Awards
Los Angeles, USA
The 71st edition of the world’s greatest prime time television awards is rolling out the red carpet this month in preparation for the heroes and villains of the little screen.

But audiences around the world can tune in at 8pm Eastern Time to see the geniuses behind shows like Fleabag, Killing Eve and Chernobyl receive their just rewards.
