Nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards were announced on July 13, and Broadway was a prominent presence in this year's binge-watching. Tony winners Viola Davis, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jessica Lange all received noms, as did a bevy of Great White Way vets. The 69th annual Emmy Awards will be hosted by Stephen Colbert and is scheduled to air on September 17 on CBS.
