Emmy Awards live updates: It’s a very hot red carpet.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kim Lane and Margie Benefield of Rockmart, Georgia, were among hundreds of fans in the bleachers Sunday at the 67th prime-time Emmy Awards, hoping to catch a glimpse at history before it happened.

First, the stars will have to navigate a sweltering afternoon in which the temperature in downtown Los Angeles was pushing 100 degrees. “Even being from the South, this is hot,” Lane said. Gender-identity issues brought to the fore by Caitlyn Jenner and others likely will be a notable part of the ceremony airing live on Fox with host Andy Samberg. “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor, considered a front-runner for the best comedy actor trophy, would earn the first Emmy for portrayal of a transgender character. Others vying for that crown are the Netflix series “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black.” They became competing siblings when the TV academy moved “Orange” from the comedy to drama category. “Game of Thrones,” this year’s top nominee overall, could make a notable showing with a best drama victory: It would become the second fantasy or sci-fi show to get the award, following “Lost” in 2005. Making a last stand are star Jon Hamm, whose portrayal of troubled ad man Don Draper has been nominated for each of the drama’s eight seasons, along with best actress nominee Elisabeth Moss and supporting actress contender Christina Hendricks.

When it comes to ratings, Fox is counting on more than the audience’s love of TV as the attraction. “Fox NFL Sunday” is broadcasting from the red carpet and the Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys telecast precedes the awards.
