Over the weekend, it was announced that SNL “Weekend Update” stars, Michael Che and Colin Jost will be hosting the 2018 Emmy Awards!
In a statement, NBC Entertainment Chairman, Robert Greenblatt said,
“NBC is thrilled to be the home of this year’s Emmy Awards and with Colin and Michael in the driver’s seat as hosts, along with surprise appearances by other cast members of Saturday Night Live, I think we are in for one of the funniest awards shows in a long time.”
Stephen Colbert was the host of last year’s ceremony and they are following him as the show’s very first hosting duo in 19 years!
The duo’s “Weekend Update” has been a regular sketch on SNL for four years, it is clear we can expect to see their bond and chemistry will channel into the year’s show.
Che and Jost are also co-head writers for Saturday Night Live!
The nominees for the Emmys will be announced on July 12th and air LIVE on NBC on September 17th!
