Emmy Awards FAQ: Where to watch the show, the pre-shows, the fashion

It’s Emmy Awards weekend — and in case you’re afraid you’ll miss a minute of coverage, we have all the answers.

Where can I watch the Emmys?

Starting with the basics — the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.

What time will the Emmys be over?

That is a more difficult question. The awards are scheduled to end at 11 p.m., but you never know how long it will run when actors go on and on in their acceptance speeches, thanking their personal trailers, pets, first grade teachers and so on.

Who’s hosting the show? It’s not five reality show hosts again, is it?

No, no, the academy learned from its mistakes. This the time, it’s Jimmy Kimmel, ABC’s late-night host.

Where can I watch the fashion? Sometimes it’s the best part.

Indeed — the earliest red carpet show kicks off on E!, as Giuliana Rancic, George Kotsiopoulos and Kelly Osbourne host “Countdown to the Red Carpet” at 5 p.m. Ryan Seacrest joins in at 6 p.m., as he and Rancic interview celebs.

Meanwhile, ABC starts its own “Emmys Red Carpet Live” at 7 p.m., with hosts Chris Harrison and Clinton Kelly, and “Good Morning America’s” Josh Elliott and Laura Spencer.

What if I want to start watching Emmys coverage even earlier?

Luckily, the Sunday morning shows have got you covered: “Today” has an Emmy preview at 8 a.m. And later on “CBS Sunday Morning,” Emmy nominee Claire Danes — nominated for lead actress in a drama — sits down for an interview, and Mark Strassman visits the set of “Homeland” (which has nine Emmy nominations) in North Carolina.
