The biggest night in television is here! The Emmys are back tonight (Monday. Jan. 15) after the writers' and actors' strikes delayed the standard September airdate. Taking place one week after the Golden Globe Awards, the annual primetime telecast, which showcases the best in television, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. The 2023 Emmys will be broadcast on Fox this time around, with "Black-ish" star Anthony Anderson hosting the proceedings at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles.

As usual, the 2023 Emmy nominees includes some of the best TV shows, including Ted Lasso, Abbott Elementary, Yellowjackets, Barry, and The White Lotus. Succession is once again leading the pack with a whopping 27 nominations, though The Last of Us is close behind with 24. 

It's a particularly competitive year for best drama series, with three critically acclaimed HBO series (Succession, The Last of Us and The White Lotus, now classified as a drama series with its second season) in the running alongside House of the Dragon, a significantly less-acclaimed show that's still buzzworthy given its Game of Thrones ties. Half of all the shows nominated for Oustanding Drama are from HBO/Max, so regardless of who takes home the top prize, the streamer is this year's clear winner. 

Last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys saw The Last of Us dominate with eight wins, including best guest actor and guest actress in a drama for memorable one-episode performances from Nick Offerman and Storm Reid, respectively. Meanwhile, FX’s “The Bear,” Netflix’s “Wednesday” and HBO’s “The White Lotus” won four apiece. 

On the comedy side, the competition is no less fierce, with fan favorites like "Ted Lasso," "Barry," and "Abbott Elementary" in a tight race to take home this year's Outstanding Comedy trophy.

Here's everything you need to watch the Emmys 2023 online — including the red carpet pre-show content and where it's airing.

How to watch Emmys 2023 live stream from anywhere

Just because Fox isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you can't watch the 2023 Emmy Awards if you're away from home. Watching the ceremony along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy with the right VPN (virtual private network). You can stream the show from wherever you go.

We've reviewed many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It's also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

How to watch Emmys 2023 in the US

In the U.S., viewers can watch the 2023 Emmy Awards tonight, Monday, Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Fox. The ceremony will also be available to watch on Hulu starting on Jan. 16. 

A pre-show red carpet countdown will air on E! at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT. 

Fox is a local broadcast network that can accessed with one of the best TV antennas. E! is only available with a cable package. 

If you've already cut the cord, you can watch Fox or E! on a live TV service, like Sling (in select markets), FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV and DirecTV Stream. Of these options, we recommend Sling and FuboTV, two of the best cable TV alternatives
