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

LOS ANGELES — Here’s the latest from Sunday night’s 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (all times local): With temperatures nearing 100 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, fans in the bleachers outside the Emmy Awards are resorting to fans — both paper and electric — to keep cool. The hundreds of people in bleachers on the red carpet on Sunday are in good spirits as staffers pass out water every few minutes to try to keep everyone hydrated.

We’ll be chronicling (and yes, sometimes obsessing over) the preparations, wins, losses, memorable moments, best and worst dressed and more at latimes.com/emmys. 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.
