How to Watch International Emmy Awards 'Game of Thrones' Honor, Live Stream and Nominees

The 2019 International Emmy Awards Gala will take place Monday night in New York, but fans across the globe can tune in to see which shows take home the honors.

The Awards Gala, which has been hosted by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences since 1973, features television nominations from around the world. Many of the shows, however, are not available to stream in the United States.

The International Emmy Awards boast three separate award ceremonies per year: Kids categories, News categories and Programs and Performances, and it's the latter that will be presented Monday night.

Here's everything you need to know about the 2019 show, its special Game of Thrones honor and how you can watch live.
