It’s TV’s biggest night and, once again, “Game of Thrones” is your best bet for Sunday night’s big winner, since the HBO show leads the 68th annual Emmy Awards with 23 nominations, followed closely by “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” with 22 noms. 

Yes, tonight is the night when all your favorite shows and stars will battle it out live from the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Though we are fairly certain “GoT” will dominate in the Outstanding Drama category, the show is up against “Homeland,” “House of Cards,” “Mr. Robot,” “Downton Abbey,” ”Better Call Saul” and “The Americans” for the top honor.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted the award show in 2012, returns as this year’s host.  He warned People that his famous friends should consider themselves targets for good natured ridicule, since he knows they’ll be able to handle it. 

“The people with whom I’m actually friendly are in the most danger usually because I know they can take a joke,” Kimmel told the publication. “That works against them. Being a good sport is the worst thing you can be.”
