Priyanka has joined the list of Hollywood stars, such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Adam Scott, Viola Davis, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Seth Meyers and Dolly Parton, who will return to the main stage to present various statuettes, reported Entertainment Weekly.

This is the second time Priyanka will present an award at the ceremony. Last year, the actor's twirl on the Emmys' red carpet got everyone talking. She was seen sharing the platform along with Marvel's Thor actor Tom Hiddleston to present the Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special award to Susanne Bier for The Night Manager.

Meanwhile, other noteworthy names in this year's list include Iain Armitage, Mark Feuerstein, Jermaine Fowler, Chris Hardwick, Kaitlin Olson, Jeremy Piven, Craig Robinson, Gina Rodriguez, Anika Noni Rose and Gabrielle Union.

The 2017 Emmys will be held at the Microsoft theatre in Downtown LA, California. The show will be hosted by popular American comedian and TV host Stephen Colbert.
