The American TV awards are presented in 27 categories in Los Angeles in the presence of the world's best actors, presenters, entertainers and writers. The nominations were announced earlier this year; the Dutch actress Carice van Houten can win prizes in the category "Best female guest role" because of her rendition of Melisandre in the HBO series "Game of Thrones".
The LGBTIQ+ community is strongly represented this year with different nominations, which was the reason for OUTtv to let viewers experience this event LIVE this year.
