During their monologue, the two both addressed the ongoing #MeToo movement. Michael said it was great to celebrate with all of Hollywood, or at least the people “who haven’t gotten caught yet.”

Colin said that hearing about Netflix’s many nominations would probably be a network executive’s biggest nightmare, “except maybe, ‘Sir, Ronan Farrow is on Line 1.’”

Emmys 2018 Hosts Colin Jost & Michael Che Roll Out the Red Carpet!

Colin Jost and Michael Che roll out the red carpet for the upcoming 2018 Emmy Awards on Thursday (September 13) at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.

The guys are hosting the show on Monday the 17th, so make sure to tune in on NBC!

Colin and Michael are best known for being the co-anchors on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update.

Colin admits that he’s nervous for the upcoming gig. He told NPR, “I’m thinking about it in advance. That’s more nerve racking than when you’re actually out on stage.”

Michael added, “You can’t be nervous. It’s comedy. If I was a fireman I’d be scared. Firemen should be afraid. … But for comedy, we’re literally going out there and we’re just going to tell some jokes and people are going to like them or not. There’s nothing to be afraid of.”

Emmys Co-Host Colin Jost Slams Award Shows as 'Adults Getting Trophies'

Colin Jost isn’t a fan of award shows, even though he’s co-hosting the Emmys next month with his SNL co-star Michael Che.

When asked by the Los Angeles Times, “Are you fond of awards shows generally?,” Colin responded, “Eh. I think most of the time they’re way too self-serious and focused on things that 99% of the country doesn’t care about. At the end of the day, it’s adults getting trophies. Why should that be taken seriously?” Colin said, before adding, “And remember when movies like ‘Gladiator’ won best picture? Why can’t good, fun things win and not just good artsy things? They’re both good and the fun ones are sometimes a lot harder to make.”

Michael responded to the same question by saying, “I remember liking the MTV awards when I was a kid.”

Later, Colin added that he was shocked that Kyle MacLachlan wasn’t nominated this year for Twin Peaks.

“I was – and I rarely use this word more than 10 times a day – flabbergasted that Kyle MacLachlan was not nominated for best actor in a Whatever-That-Category-Is-Called. He played at least four different versions of Dale Cooper in the new ‘Twin Peaks’ and was amazing at all of them (I thought Laura Dern should have been nominated as well, but at least she got recognized for ‘The Tale’). It’s amazing that the first ‘Twin Peaks’ series got overlooked in the early ’90s and for 25 years people talked about how crazy it was that it got overlooked. And now the new series is going through the same exact thing! It’s like if we had gone through a world war and then 25 years later we had another world war! It wouldn’t make sense!”
