The 68th annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, are just hours away.

And, ahead of the biggest night in television IBTimes UK has been granted access to the latest odds on which stars, and which shows, will walk away from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater with the big prizes…

11/8 Rami Malek (Mr Robot)
6/4 Kevin Spacey (House of Cards)
5/1 Matthew Rhys (The Americans)
5/1 Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)

Our writers keenly backed Malek to win the prize, despite worrying his newcomer status may hinder him. However, it seems our wish may be granted. Check out or full thoughts, here.

10/11 Robin Wright (House of Cards)
7/2 Claire Danes (Homeland)
7/2 Keri Russell (The Americans)
5/1 Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder)

Four seasons in and House of Cards can still hold its own precisely because Robin Wright adds ever increasing depth to her performance as Claire – matching Kevin Spacey's chilling portrayal of Frank Underwood every step of the way.

But our writers picked a different winner, favouring Keri Russell – find out why, here.

It's a tough call, but we wouldn't discount Russell just yet…

2/5 Game of Thrones
4/1 Mr Robot
8/1 The Americans
14/1 Homeland
18/1 House of Cards
25/1 Downton Abbey
33/1 Better Call Saul

It's very difficult to look past Game of Thrones after such a barnstorming sixth series, but our writers did also tip departing British favourite Downton Abbey as an outside choice…

1/3 Veep
4/1 Master of None
8/1 Transparent
14/1 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
14/1 Black-ish
16/1 Modern Family

Veep still has us laughing every step of the way and remains on top form – our writers still love it and think it will win, but also have a serious soft spot for a certain Kimmy Schmidt.

Unsure how to watch the awards this evening or what time they start? Don't worry, our handy guide answers all the key questions.

Enjoy the show!
