Andy Samberg Hosting The Emmy Awards & Here's Why He's Perfect For The Job
It's official: We have our host for this year's Emmy Awards, and he's kind of a funny guy. According to Deadline, Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards, which are scheduled for Sept. 20. The Brooklyn 99 star is no stranger to the award show — it was just last year that he took home the award for Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical, for his role on the Fox sitcom. Now, instead of scooping up awards, he'll be the one helping to give them out — and it's a role that couldn't be more perfect for him.
Like with any award show, the Emmys have the opportunity to be a really fun night, but they can also go the other route and make everyone at home watching wish they DVRed the night instead. I'm a big fan of award shows myself, but even I know that without a killer host to guide us through the evening, the show can be, well, a snooze. Luckily, Samberg is host that will likely guide us through the show without a dull moment. Here's why Samberg is the perfect guy to host the Emmys, because we all deserve to have a good time.
He can nail a quick impression.
Just imagine how useful this will be when he needs to do one of Kathy Bates' American Horror Story: Freak Show accents.
He has the hosting thing down.
The former Saturday Night Live cast member hosted the Season 39 finale of the sketch show.
He's the master of digital shorts.
Nothing breaks up an awards show better than a music video featuring The Lonely Island.
He's bros with Justin Timberlake.
If a live-action version of "Dick In a Box" doesn't happen, the Emmys will be wasted.
