Bring out your finest dresses and tuxedos for the biggest night on TV.

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards will honor the best in television on Monday, September 12, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

While awards will be handed out in many competitive categories on Monday, the Creative Arts Emmys have already handed out gold statuettes Sept. 3-4 to other stars for their hard work.

Winners of the two-night event included “Squid Game” star Lee You-mi, Colman Domingo, Laurie Metcalf and Nathan Lane. The late Chadwick Boseman won a posthumous Emmy for his voice work on the Disney+ and Marvel Studios animated series “What If…?”

Former President Barack Obama also picked up an award by winning the Emmy for Outstanding Storyteller for the Netflix documentary series “Our Great National Parks.”

While some shows and stars will emerge victorious, all guests in attendance on Monday will pick up an amazing and luxurious goody bag full of goodies. The bag is worth around $70,000 and includes an African safari, NFT artwork, a grill and other big-ticket items.

So if you’re gearing up to watch the show, here’s everything you need to know about how to watch or stream, who’s nominated and more.
