Jimmy Kimmel Will Host The 2020 Emmys In September

Jimmy Kimmel has been named as the host for the 2020 Emmys.

On Tuesday, the Television Academy announced that 52-year-old late night talk show host will host the award ceremony for the third time.

Kimmel said of the role, “I don’t know where we will do this or how we will do this or even why we are doing this but we are doing it and I am hosting it.”

It was suspected that it would be postponed due to the coronavirus, but it is still set for September 20th on ABC.

ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said in a statement, “We know Jimmy Kimmel will deliver a uniquely entertaining, funny and moving Primetime Emmys show. He’s a true master of ceremonies who reverse this industry and its people; and just as Jimmy has done with his own show over the past few months, he will tackle this momentous event with heart and humor, and bring some much-needed joy and optimism to our television colleagues and viewers at home.”

The nominees, which were supposed to be announced July 14th, will now be announced on July 28th.
