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.”

This will be the second time that Jimmy has hosted the show. He previously was the host back in 2012, the last time that ABC broadcasted the awards show.

Jimmy Kimmel is the consummate showman,” ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement. “With Kimmel at the helm, expect to be at the edge of your seat for a bigger, bolder and better-than-ever Emmy event.”
