Jimmy Kimmel Officially Set to Host Emmy Awards 2016!

It’s official – Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the 2016 Emmy Awards!

“I am hosting the #Emmys on Sunday, Sept 18. Until then, have a great summer,” the 48-year-old late night show host tweeted on Monday morning (March 7).

“I am excited to be hosting the Emmys again,” Jimmy added in a statement (via Variety). “I have a feeling I’m going to be great.”
