The 2016 Emmys are right around the corner, and we're here to get you prepared for Sunday's big night.

While there are many shows, actors and actresses who have been nominated before (ahemHouse of Cards), there are plenty of newbies that are coming to the Emmys table. But what makes this year exciting is not only how many nominations certain people and shows have been able to nab but also who will be one step closer to the coveted EGOT—Beyoncé. That's right, Queen Bey is up for an Emmy, everyone.

Beyhive aside, there is a lot to be excited for at this year's Jimmy Kimmel-hosted event, but it is difficult to keep up with who is nominated for what, so E! News has broken down the night's numbers.
