    The Television Academy has announced that Uzo Aduba, the Emmy® Award-winning actress from Netflix’s
    Orange is the New Black, and Emmy Award nominee John Stamos, star of the upcoming FOX series
    Grandfathered, will present the nominations for the 67th
    Primetime Emmy Awards.  Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce
    Rosenblum will join Aduba and Stamos for the nominations ceremony which
    will take place on July 16 at 11:30 AM (ET)/8:30
    AM (PT) from the SilverScreen Theater at the Pacific Design
    Center.  The nominations will also stream live on Emmys.com. 

    ”Television
    has never been more robust, available and entertaining,” said Bruce
    Rosenblum. “This year we’ve had a 40% increase in drama series
    submissions and close to a 70% increase in limited
    series submissions, which underscores the wealth of content that’s
    being produced across all platforms by top quality talent in this new
    golden age of television.  We look forward to having Uzo and John join
    us as we kick off what promises to be an incredible
    Emmy season.”

    Additionally,
    Spike Jones, Jr. will return to produce the nominations ceremony this
    year, marking the fifth year he has produced the Primetime Emmy
    nominations announcements. 

    Aduba currently stars as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren in the critically acclaimed Netflix original series
    Orange is the New Black.  For her role, Aduba won the 2014 Emmy
    Award for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.”  She was the
    winner of the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Award for “Outstanding Actress in
    a Comedy” and was a part of OITNB’s win for
    “Best Ensemble in a Comedy.” Additionally, she won the 2014 Broadcast
    Television Journalists Association Award for “Best Guest Performer in a
    Comedy.” With her SAG and Emmy honors, Aduba became the first African
    American actress to win the award in each category.
    She was also nominated for the 2015 Golden Globe Award for “Outstanding
    Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series, or TV Movie.” 

    Before starring on television, Aduba made her Broadway debut in
    Coram Boy in 2007, followed by the hit musical revival of Godspell
    in 2011. She discovered her talent for singing at a very early age and
    became a classical music major at the Boston University School of Fine
    Arts.

    Emmy-nominated
    actor and producer John Stamos has had a successful career spanning
    more than 30 years.  This fall, Stamos stars in the new FOX comedy
    Grandfathered for which he also serves as an executive producer. 
    Additionally, Stamos will produce and guest star in the recently
    announced season of Netflix’s Fuller House, a new multi-camera comedy spin-off of the iconic ABC comedy Full
    House

    Additional credits for Stamos include
    General Hospital, and NBC’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning drama ER, along with notable multi-episode television arcs on USA Network’s
    Necessary Roughness, FOX’s hit series Glee and NBC’s The New Normal.  As a producer, Stamos is currently in development with Twentieth Century Fox and Oscar®-winning producers, Neil Meron & Craig Zadan, on a musical feature set
    to the songs of The Beach Boys. 

    The 67th Emmy Awards,
    hosted by Andy Samberg, airs live Sunday, September 20 (8:00 PM ET /
    5:00 PM PT) on FOX and will originate
    from the Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theatre) in Los Angeles. Don
    Mischer will serve as executive producer for the telecast.

    Ooh. I thought Taraji P. Henson would’ve been a lock for this. They went with a new Fox star instead.

     

    I guess we’ll hear the Academy president announce Uzo’s nomination like they’ve done recently with other supporting players.

     

    Yay for a later time. 11:30 is much better.

    Why did you think Taraji was a lock to announce nominations?! lol Do you think it would have been an indication of her nomination? I remember when they had  Kerry Washington announce nominations and it didnt work out too well for her. ( she wasn’t nominated that year)

    Aw, I actually liked the early time because it added to the “event” nature.

    Fox really should have gone with Andy Samberg instead.

    Early morning nominations for me too. No awards bodies should sit on nominations longer than necessary. The Grammys are the absolute worst in doing that with their primetime “concerts” and other platform nonsense.

    8:30a instead of 5:30a.
    West Hollywood instead of The Valley
    U.ZO.A.DU.BA.

    Yeah I don’t know how they are going to do the announcement for us East Coasters. 11 am is the local news and The View. Unless they cut into those I don’t know how they are doing it unless the air them on E! or something. Usually they are done perfectly in time for Today and Good Morning America to broadcast so that’s the only reason why I like the earlier time.

    How does the nominations being early in the morning add any excitement? We’re just used to it.

     

    Now we can actually sleep. That’s exciting. 😉

    Considering I woke up 5 minutes before the Oscar nominees this year, 11:30 is a much welcome change.

    It differentiated it from other days.
