It missed the Emmy deadline and, thus, isn't up for any awards this year. Let's break down one of the biggest races on TV's biggest night.

Watch the 69th Emmy Awards this Sunday on CBS, 8 P.M. EST.

With a whopping 149 nominations across 23 shows, Hotstar is the home of the Emmys and will be the only digital platform in the country to simulcast the event. No network series has won in the category since "24" in 2006. It will be held Sunday, September 17, at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live nationwide on CBS. So it's the robot cowboys of "Westworld" dominating the drama categories.

Last year's big victor "Game of Thrones" premiered later than usual, making it ineligible this year. Politics promise to run through Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles, starting with host Stephen Colbert, whose relentless attacks on Trump have brought a surge of viewers to "The Late Show".

Some of the most exciting series this year fall under the "Best Comedy Series" category, including our favorite Aziz Ansari-directed Master of None (Netflix), Modern Family (ABC), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix), Blackish (ABC), Atlanta (FX), Silicon Valley (HBO), and Veep (HBO).
