Andy Samberg to Host 2015 Emmy Awards

Andy Samberg, the star of Fox’s sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” will host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. This marks the comedian’s first time hosting a major awards show.

The awards will air on Fox on Sunday, Sept. 20, live from coast-to-coast (8ET/5 p.m. PT) from the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. The show’s producers are expected to be announced shortly.

“It’s wonderfully fitting that we have Andy Samberg, an Emmy Award winner himself, as our host for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards,” said Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Television Academy. “Andy has excelled in all aspects of the television universe, both from behind and in front of the camera. His humor, insights and charisma will be an exciting addition to our annual celebration of television’s best and brightest.”

“The moment the Emmy Awards’ host was brought up, we said it had to be Andy,” said Gary Newman and Dana Walden, Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs. “He is fearless, hilarious, an award-winning comedian, singer, writer and actor with incredible live TV experience. We know he’ll deliver the laughs and give viewers an incredible night they will enjoy.”

“Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!,” said Samberg, who won a Golden Globe award in 2014 for his role on the Fox comedy. “Like, in general, you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I’m hosting, and it’s gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts.”

An alum of “Saturday Night Live,” Samberg is also part of the Lonely Island comedy troupe with partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Fox inked a multiyear deal in January 2014 with the Lonely Island to develop comedy series

The nominations for the awards will be announced July 16.
