The Emmy Awards rotate over to the Fox network this year and will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 20. Who do you think will be tapped to emcee?
If tradition holds, someone associated with Fox will be chosen. Jane Lynch, the breakout star of that net’s hit show “Glee,” was the host in 2011. Four years before that, it was Ryan Seacrest from the super successful “American Idol.” WIth “Glee” bowing out this season, Lynch is unlikely to return as emcee but Seacrest could well reprise that role.
Other stars from the Fox family that could host include:
If Fox goes outside the family, it is unlikely they would hire a host who appears regularly on another network, That certainly precludes Stephen Colbert and James Corden from CBS, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers from NBC, and Jimmy Kimmel from ABC.
Among the possibilities are:
Ricky Gervais – three-time Golden Globe host and potential Emmy nominee for “Derek”;
Kevin Hart – one of the hottest comedians in films and television;
Conan O’Brien – two-time Emmy host who headlines his own show on the cablecaster TBS;
Chris Rock – past Oscar host and Emmy winner;
Martin Short – won an Emmy last year and recently starred on “Mulaney” for Fox; and
