Awards season is in full swing and next up we have the Emmy Awards! The prestigious ceremony is taking place this evening, Monday. Jan. 15, 2024 at 8:00 p.m. ET. This show will highlight the best of the best in television, including dramas like Succession and The Last of Us, as well as comedies like The Bear and Ted Lasso. (Though I still wouldn't consider The Bear a comedy... Oh well.) This Emmys was postponed from Sept. 2023 because of the writers' and actors' strikes, so shows from as early as June 2022 will be included. Ready to see who will win? Us too!

And in addition to all of the well-deserved awards that will be handed out tonight, I personally am so excited to see what the celebrities will wear. Watching the red carpet to check out the actors' looks and hearing how they're feeling ahead of the big show is always a highlight for me, and I'm sure others feel the same way.

It can be confusing to keep up with where all the award show red carpets broadcast from — the Golden Globes this year aired theirs on YouTube, which we were confused about. So what about the Emmys? Where can you watch the red carpet this evening?

E! will be hosting a red carpet special for the Emmys

E! will be hosting a red carpet special for the Emmys tonight, which is great because the network does such a great job at it. If you're a huge red carpet fan and want to be in the know as soon as possible, you can tune in for the Live From E!: Countdown to the Emmys special starting at 5:00 p.m. ET today, where comedian Amber Ruffin and E! news correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi will discuss Emmys fashion and preview what's to come for the night.

If you want to skip the countdown and get right into the celebs' arrivals, then you'll want to tune in at 6:00 p.m. ET this evening for the Live From E!: Emmys broadcast, airing on the channel E!. The red carpet show will be hosted by Laverne Cox, who is expected to interview the biggest stars at the event. She'll be joined by comedian Heather McMahan.

How to stream E's Emmys red carpet show

If you don't have cable to watch E! on your TV tonight, there are a few ways to stream the channel so you don't miss a second of the Emmys red carpet. You'll likely have to spend a few bucks to sign up for a streaming service if you don't have one of these, however (unless they have a free trial!):

  • Stream with FuboTV: Offers free trial, plans start at $79.99 per month after free trial
  • Stream with Hulu + Live TV: $76.99 per month
  • Stream with DIRECTV: Offers free trial, plans start at $79.99 per month + tax after free trial
  • Stream with Sling TV: $45.00 per month for "Blue" package which includes E!
  • Stream with YouTube TV: Offers free trial, plans start at $62.99 per month for your first 3 months after free trial

If you sign up for one of these streaming services or have access to cable, you'll also be able to watch the Emmy Awards live after E!'s red carpet. The ceremony will not air on E! but rather on Fox, which is a broadcast network. The Emmys begin at 8:00 p.m. ET and will only air on Fox. If you have Hulu, however, the show will be added to the streaming service at some point tomorrow.

It's one of the biggest nights in Hollywood and we wouldn't recommend missing it live if you're a big fan of TV like we are!
