Which Late Night Funnyman is Hosting the 2016 Emmy Awards?

Kimmel TapperAnd the answer is, this guy!

ABC confirmed today that Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting this year’s Emmy Awards ceremony. The news originally broke on Good Morning America, but Kimmel himself tweeted out a confirmation of his own later this morning:

The 68th award ceremony will be Kimmel’s second time hosting the event for ABC, the last time being in 2012. Kimmel’s returning hostship comes after Andy Samberg‘s performance for Fox in 2015, Seth Meyers‘ 2014 job for NBC, and Neil Patrick Harris‘ CBS gig in 2013.

“I am excited to be hosting the Emmys again,” Kimmel said today in a statement. “I have a feeling I’m going to be great.”

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey agrees, saying today that Kimmel is a “consummate showman,” and that viewers should “expect to be at the edge of your seat for a bigger, bolder and better-than-ever Emmy event.”
