Andy Samberg to Host 2015 Emmys
Now that Neil Patrick Harris, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler all seem over the award show-hosting scene, a new hero must rise. Enter 2015's 67th annual Emmy Awards, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and SNL alum Andy Samberg set to make his hosting debut, taking over for 2014's Seth Meyers!
While we’ll have to wait until July 16 for any actual nominations, Samberg will host FOX’s broadcast of the 67th Emmy ceremony, airing Sunday, September 20. To wit, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star gave and impressively convoluted, if important and life-saving statement on the matter:
Buckle your seat belts, 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 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.
Wise words for all, Mr. Samberg. In the meantime, who deserves a nomination, come this July? Will Samberg live up to last year with Seth Meyers, or any of the other recent award show turns?
