    Way to go, Jimmy!

    Jimmy Kimmel to Host Emmy Awards

    Mar 26, 2012 09:37 AM ET

    by Joyce Eng

    Jimmy Kimmel will host this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, the TV academy announced Monday.

    “We are thrilled to have been asked to produce the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards,” Don Mischer, who’s returning as executive producer for the 12th time, said in a statement. “We love television and look forward to working with the Television Academy and ABC in creating a show that is fast-paced, humorous, unpredictable, and at times irreverent, but clearly celebratory of our incredible industry.”

    This will be Kimmel’s first time emceeing the Emmys. The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host has previously hosted the American Music Awards and the ESPY Awards. He is also set to host the White House Correspondents Dinner next month.

    The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 23 on ABC.

    Outstanding!! He should have hosted the last time ABC had the ceremony (instead of the reality hosts).

    Kimmel really should have had this hosting job the last time around. His post-Oscar shows have been pretty strong too. I’ll look forward to seeing what he does here.

    Last time he hosted, I really enjoyed it! The choice is a predictable one, but that doesn’t cut down on the fact that he should be a great job.

    I must be the only person that isn’t a huge Kimmel fan.  I find his brand of humor a little douchey.

    Not a fan of his late night show, but he’s been pretty terrific as Emmy host before.

    Kimmel has never hosted the Emmys before.

    And this is the part where I stop drinking and remind myself that Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon are two different people.

    Yay for Jimmy Kimmel being host. The previous 3 hosts has been pretty good, hopefully Kimmel will do it alright. Surely there will be a clip montage with Kimmel getting his celebrity friends in.
