Transcript for The Emmys prepares for a night of firsts
No red carpet for the stars who usually glam it up for television's biggest night but we will get a chance to peek into their living rooms in an Emmy award like no other. Janai Norman is here with what we can expect. Good morning, janai. Good morning. This year's emmys will be less glitz and glamour, more couch and slippers. All the nominees this year will be at home, some dressed up, others dressed down, still waiting to see whether they'll win that coveted golden trophy. This morning, we're just one day away from TV's biggest night. It's the emmys like you've never seen before. Normally the final hours of the prime time Emmy awards are for the finishing touches, waiters practicing their choreographed champagne serving while others are rolling out the red carpet.

Tomorrow's prime time show is the final night of the Emmy award season with notable winners like Maya Rudolph and brie Larson already claiming top spots at this year's creative arts ceremony. The emmys air tomorrow on ABC starting at 5:00 P.M. Eastern, 8:00 P.M. Eastern, 5:00 pacific but the party gets started before then. Join Eva, whit and I for a countdown to the emmys, our virtual preshow where we'll talk with nominees, take a look at who is likely to win the awards on, roku and wherever you can get the ABC news app. When the party really gets started.
