The Emmys are about to get a lot funnier, as SNL
Alum Andy Samberg will be hosting the 2015 slot.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine
star was announced yesterday
(March 12) as the host of this year’s 67th
Emmy Award ceremony. It won’t be the first time an SNL
alumnus has taken the honor, as last yearSeth Meyers
took the wheel.
Samberg is no stranger to hosting, having one of the funniest and successful stints as host on last year’s season of Saturday Night Live.
Samberg released the statement:
“Buckle your seatbelts, Emmy Viewers! […] Like in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seatbelt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I’m hosting and it’s gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts.”
I cannot wait.
In fact, everything’s coming up for Samberg, whose hit sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine
was renewed for a third season by Fox.
Classic Andy Samberg. What a boss…
Nominations for the Emmys will be announced on July 16th
and the show will air on September 20th
from the Nokia Theatre in LA.
