It’s almost Emmy season, and we are excited for the possible twists and turns this year’s awards show will provide. Last year, RuPaul Charles won Best Host of a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for RuPaul’s Drag Race. Will he again be among the LGBTQ hosts, actors, writers and directors recognized for their exceptional work this year? There are quite a few strong recent contenders for this year’s nominations, including the Netflix Queer Eye reboot and the revamped Will & Grace on NBC. Other shows like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange is the New Black may also have more Emmy love in store. The 70th Emmy Awards show will be hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost of Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” September 17 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. emmys.com
