The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards are the biggest day for television, and they are tomorrow! The event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in LA and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. You can catch it at 8 PM ET on ABC or you can catch a live stream through ABC.com. If you miss it, you can catch reruns On Demand. Here is everything you need to know about the Emmys:

Red Carpet: There will, as usual, be a ton of Red Carpet coverage. On E!, the coverage will begin around 4 PM, though celebs won't start showing up until well after that. Check after the show for even more interviews.

Who Will Be Presenting?: Well, according to ET: Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, Hank Azaria, Kristen Bell, Julie Bowen, Kyle Chandler, Priyanka Chopra, James Corden, Laverne Cox, Bryan Cranston, Claire Danes, Larry David, Michelle Dockery, Minnie Driver, America Ferrera, Tina Fey, Tony Goldwyn, Kit Harington, Taraji P. Henson, Tom Hiddleston, Terrence Howard, Allison Janney, Matt LeBlanc, Rami Malek, Margo Martindale, Joel McHale, Mandy Moore, Randall Park, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Tracee Ellis Ross, Keri Russell, Andy Samberg, Liev Schreiber, Peter Scolari, Abigail Spencer, Kiefer Sutherland, Jeffrey Tambor, Damon Wayans, Michael Weatherly and Constance Wu.

Notable Noms: Could this be the year that Tatiana Maslany takes home Emmy gold for playing multiple roles in one of the best shows on television? How many of the 23 nominations will Game of Thrones win? Expect to see a lot of the cast from The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story since they have 22 nominations. 

While The Oscars had a lot of bad publicity because of their lack of diversity, the Emmys shouldn't have a problem. There are nearly two dozen non-white actors nominated in all of the major categories.

Sarah Paulson is probably the most heavily favored actress of the year for her role as Marcia Clark - and Courtney B. Vance has a fantastic chance as well. 

The Snubs: Of course there are a lot of snubs each year. The biggest this year came from the same network - the CW. Both Gina Rodriguez and Rachel Bloom have Golden Globes for their respective roles on Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, but neither received Emmy love this year. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend does have some Emmy love in the artistic categories.

In Memoriam: The most somber part of the night will come with Tori Kelly crooning in the background. 

Even if you aren't interested in who wins, Emmy night is also a great time to preview the shows that are to come this season.
