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?
