Full story below…
After the entire entertainment landscape paused due to the pandemic, the Emmys will return to the Microsoft Theater in LA on September 19.
Much like recent ceremonies, the show will also feature a limited in-person audience of nominees and their guests after last year’s virtual affair.
Speaking on the gig, Cedric said in a statement:
“Since I was a little boy huddled up next to my grandmother, television has always been my reliable friend, so it is an enormous honor for me to host this year’s Emmy Awards. Throughout the roller-coaster of a year that we have all lived through, television has helped us stay connected as a society like never before. It not only entertained us, but as it always has, it helped to open our eyes, educate us, and hopefully brought about a better understanding of who we are as a people. I can’t wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year.”
