Emmy Scoop: Joshua Jackson, Melissa McCarthy To Announce Nominees on July 14

It’s not an actual nomination but it’s still a pretty cool honor: Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy and Fringe‘s Joshua Jackson have been tapped to announce this year’s Emmy noms on Thursday, July 14.

The duo will join Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Chairman John Shaffner at the pre-dawn ceremony.

The actual Emmys — hosted by Glee‘s Jane Lynch — will air live Sunday, Sept. 18 on Fox. Until then, you can dive deep into TVLine’s ongoing preview of television’s biggest night right here, in our special Emmys section.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I really hope we get to see Joshua Jackson announce noms for his co-stars.

    • Amanda says:

      I totally agree, I would especially love to see him announce John Noble’s name.

    • Pamela says:

      Yes, please!

    • Guest says:

      I hope in the category Lead Actress to hear him say Anna Torv.

      Since they will anounce traditionally, the man wil anounce the women,
      so Anna Torv would do nicely.

    • Peoplewinston says:

      Yeah wouldn’t that be a kick. Oh I wasn’t given much to do, I didn’t have a darn double to play, people were mad at me for not telling the two Olivias apart and now my two costars are being loved and respected while I’m not, so let me announce Anna (blah) Torv and John (blah) Noble as nominees.

      • Johnification says:

        You’ve never worked on an acting project and felt genuine joy for a colleague, have you?

        • People says:

          Not if I was given crappy storylines to work with and half of the fanbase hated me because of my costars character, or better yet, her stupid doppleganger.

          • mcat says:

            Half the fanbase hates Peter? How could anyone hate Peter? :(

          • Kate says:

            I have never met a Fringe fan who hates Peter. I’m really not sure where you get this.

          • Amy says:

            This is this one psycho person who goes around from website to website declaring that everybody hates Peter, that the show is out to get Joshua Jackson and there’s all some big conspiracy at work, so “Fringe” is crap and nobody should watch it. She’s unstable. Do not provoke.

  3. Danielle says:

    I watch both of their shows and consider both of them great actors. At least this is a sure way that the Emmy’s know that Fringe exists and hopefully we get what we’ve been waiting for.

  4. Julia says:

    woooow that´s nice!
    I love Melissa she is super funny and I watch Fringe and Joshua is awesome! so it´s a good combination between those two…looking forward to it.

  5. LOL says:

    I thought it started at 5:40 am Pacific time.

  6. Murilo Maceda says:

    NICE! maybe next year James Van Der Beek will be announcing. lol

  7. May says:

    For the love of all that’s holy….please let this be a good sign that John Noble and Anna Torv get the recognition they deserve. The rest of the cast is deserving as well, but if those two are not nominated it will be asinine.

  8. Kay says:

    Keeping my fingers crossed for Joshua Jackson to announce John Noble and Anna Torv!

  9. Mindy says:

    Oh my goodness…. Please let this mean that Joshua Jackson gets to announce the name of his co-star JOHN NOBLE. That would be one of the greatest Emmy nomination surprises ever!

  10. Cynthia says:

    Awww, it’s like a little WB/CW reunion!

  11. Kaiulani says:

    I’m just glad the TV Academy is actually acknowledging the existence of Fringe. Any nominations would be icing on the cake.

  12. Ali says:

    I agree. Let us here John Noble’s name. He so deserves the nomination. And in my opinion…the win.

  13. Laura says:

    Don’t get too excited, everyone. Joel McHale announced the nominations last year, and Community wasn’t nominated for anything.

  14. Emma says:

    Awesome! I love both of these actors.

  15. Laurie says:

    Maybe Melissa will announce Lauren Graham’s name.

  16. John K. says:

    I hate to be a party pooper, but the nomination announcements NEVER include supporting categories, so even if Noble somehow gets in, Joshua Jackson won’t be reading it. Still, since the Emmys hate the WB and CW so much, it’s nice that they’re letting the stars of Dawson’s Creek and Gilmore Girls do the nominations.

  17. Bobbi says:

    On GMA?

  18. V says:

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Joel mcHale announced the nominees last year and Community was nowhere in the ballot.

    Just saying.

  19. Chatty says:

    Well, I choose to be optimistic. Here’s hoping for some Fringe love at the Emmys!

  20. deedeedragons says:

    I would love, love them to be nominated but sci-fi doesn’t fly at the Emmys. Guess how many times David Duchovny was nominated for The X Files (& remember there were 6 or 7 good years before it went all silly) Twice! & he never won.

  21. Amy says:

    Joshua Jackson plus Melissa McCarthy equals best pitch for a romcom I’ve heard in years.

  22. br says:

    I hope Joshua Jackson gets to announce the always amazing John Noble. That would make me very happy!

  23. Dirk says:

    I haven’t tried watching Mike and Molly in a while, but Melissa McCarthy is absolutely wonderful.

  24. Missy says:

    I think the Emmy is already obvious the Fringe and it’s top thespians are up for the big prizes… Well, I could only hope…

  25. Annie says:

    I wanna see Josh announce Anna Torv and John Noble as nominees!

    • RebeccaHall says:

      Why? Just so Josh can feel like crap considering HE NEVER GETS ANYTHING TO DO ON THIS STUPID STUPID STUPID SHOW!

  26. Mike says:

    it been a few years ago, that every time the announcers (or one of them) get nominated, and I really hope that Melissa McCarthy get nominated

  27. Christy says:

    Pacey and Sookie announce together, then Pacey’s Mom hosts? Awesome. Seriously (although I was actually being serious before, too), I’d love to see some Fringe nominations!

  28. Howard says:

    Joshua Jackson should get to announce his co-stars’ names, and also his partner. Melissa McCarthy earned a nod in a big way (no pun intended – OK, maybe a little bit).
