Emmys 2016: Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham to Announce Noms

Those in the running for this year’s Emmys will hear their names read by a Gilmore mom and a black-ish dad.

Lauren Graham and Anthony Anderson will announce the nominees on Thursday, July 14, per The Hollywood Reporter. 

The event will take place at 11:30/10:30c at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. This is the second year that the ceremony will happen at 8:30 am local time, instead of its previous 5:30 start.

Anderson was nominated last year for his portrayal of Dre in the ABC comedy. Gilmore Girls‘ Graham, as we recently noted, has never been nominated.

“Television is enjoying the most spectacular run in its history with breakthrough creativity, emerging platforms and dynamic new opportunities for our industry’s storytellers,” Bruce Rosenblum, Television Academy chairman and CEO, said in a statement obtained by THR. “We are thrilled to have Anthony and Lauren on board to help kick-off what promises to be an extraordinary Emmy season.”

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!

    Those who can’t win read nominations. Poor Lauren Graham.

      Not always poor. You may recall that when Parenthood was cast, the part of Sarah Braverman went to Maura Tierney, who had to withdraw due to her breast cancer diagnosis. So, Lauren Graham got a 103 episode gig on Parenthood, sort by default.

    Someone make sure they know that Caitriona is pronounced ‘Katrina’

    “Breakthrough creativity”, seriously? No wonder I watch reruns! The only shows on TV now are reboots, reimaginings, zombie/horror or book (comic or otherwise) adaptations, ugh!

    Do they stream this online somewhere?

    Lauren Graham is an interesting choice. I wish there was a 1 hour dramedy category for shows like Gilmore Girls, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Orange is the New Black. I still think its unfair to put half-hour comedies against one-hour dramedies.

    Expect to see Sarah Paulson and Courtney B. Vance in the acting categories.
