The 70th Emmy Awards will face a major upgrade this year, by virtue of an epic SNL takeover. The primetime telecast undertakes it’s comedy reformation at the hands of SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels along with co-hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost. The awards special is also rumored to feature additional SNL cast members.
We’re not usually one for awards shows, but whatever Michael Che has a hand in, is sure to be comedy gold!
“NBC is thrilled to be the home of this year’s Emmy Awards and with Colin and Michael in the driver’s seat as hosts, along with surprise appearances by other cast members of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ I think we are in for one of the funniest awards shows in a long time,”
-Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment Chairman (Variety).
This year’s Emmy’s will debut LIVE from the Microsoft Theater in downtown LA on Monday, September 17, 2018 8pm (EST) on NBC.
