Yahoo TV is the first official digital partner of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and we will be providing you with an exclusive, behind-the-scenes pass to this year's Emmy Awards!
This one-of-a-kind online experience will take viewers on the preshow red carpet; backstage with the winners and presenters; and, for the first time, into the swanky Governors Ball afterparty. All you have to do is watch our live-stream coverage on your desktop computer or mobile device.
Red Carpet Glitz
Starting at 4 p.m. PT, your favorite Yahoo hosts Ben Lyons, Nikki Boyer, and Diane Mizota will be on the red carpet in real time, along with fashion maven Jeannie Mai and TV expert Dave Nemetz, to provide live commentary and analysis.
Then, from 5 to 8 p.m. PT, we'll be live-streaming the Emmys' official "Backstage Live" event, where Nemetz will provide analysis with host Marc Istook. This is where you'll get to watch and listen to the first interviews from winners and presenters as they exit the big stage.

Don't forget to send your congrats and well wishes to the winners in real time, because as they enter the media center and stop to chat with Istook and Nemetz, fans' reactions, messages, and #EmmysCongrats that have been posted across social media will be displayed for your favorite stars to see.
I Forgot to Thank …
We even have a fun way for the winners to thank those they didn't mention while accepting their statuettes. Our "InstaStop" will be backstage at the Winners' Walk, and it will have a "I Forgot To Thank ____" sign for celebs to fill out and hold up to our camera. These photos will be uploaded to the Yahoo TV Instagram page. Be sure to follow us to see all the celeb selfies. They even get to select their own filter!

Our live-stream will reveal what happens inside the afterparty as winners and presenters celebrate TV's biggest night. Boyer, Nemetz, and Mai will host live from the ball, while Mizota will be at the Winners' Walk stage, catching up with all the stars who took home Emmy gold.
