Andy Samberg to Host Emmy Awards

Emmys 2015 Host Andy Samberg

To the surprise of no one who knows the recipe for choosing the Primetime Emmy Awards host, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg has been recruited to lord over Fox’s broadcast of this year’s ceremony.

The 67th annual Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 20, at 8/7c.

“Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!,” Samberg said in a statement. “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 seat belt. 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.”

Nominations for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced July 16.

How do you think funnyman Samberg will stack up against previous Emmy hosts Seth Meyers, Neil Patrick Harris and Jimmy Kimmel?

  2. CactusRose says:

    Meh. Not a big fan of Brooklyn 99.

  3. Li says:

    Heck yes, can’t wait. On the other hand, being a host for these things is such a thankless job. I wish him luck!

  4. Tran says:

    Think Samberg is a good choice to host this year’s Emmy Awards. Try not to hate him whether or not you’re a fan of Brooklyn Nine Nine.

  5. RJ says:

  6. LT says:

    Major Fail.

  7. Kim&Bey says:

    He is hilarious, will def tune in

  8. lisa says:

    Sandberg is great but this just the wrong fit for him. This will be bad

  9. fayedigi says:

    Well if Ryan Gossling hosted, I would definitely watch at least some of the Emmy’s.

  10. Joey Padron says:

    good choice of Andy hosting the show. he did a good job hosting spirt awards.

  11. Arlene says:

    don’t watch bklyn 99 but samburg is hilarious so will watch even tho the chances of sons of anarchy being remembered for its final brilliantly devestating season are still pretty damned low

  12. CK says:

    I’m torn. I like him on Brooklyn Nine nine, but I hate his stand up so depending on which way the writers go I’ll either enjoy/hate his hosting. I’m going to watch the show regardless of host anyway.

    Andy Samberg is the man!

  15. zac says:

    He really is a polarizing comedian. But I will watch coz I watch every year haha and I like his brand of comedy since his SNL days

  16. doris says:

    If I watch, it will have nothing to do with who the host is. I have never watched Brooklyn 99.

  17. cyclone says:

    I never liked Andy Samberg. On SNL his celebrity impressions weren’t that great and his digital shorts weren’t funny. I just hope he keeps his “bits” to a minimum.

  18. retsim says:

    Are you kidding !!Who the hell decides this ,is it the same bunch of stupid old idiots who pick the Oscar winner. Samberg is the most unfunny host or supposed comedian you could pick.You might be better getting the Muppet’s to do it .

  19. Temperance says:

    The problem is that he’s never, ever been funny.

  22. retsim says:

    Andy Samberg is the most useless actors i have seen in god knows how many years. Brooklyn 99 is like a kids show .Any adult who thinks it is good should check their medication.In the UK according to my grandchildren is a complete moron.I hope he comes on with a carrier bag to carry his pathetic ego.What a plonker .
