Every year the major four broadcast networks flip-flop between who hosts the Emmy Awards. So, which network hired the best host? Here’s a refresher:
2015 – 67th Emmys – Fox – Andy Samberg
2014 – 66th Emmys – NBC – Seth Meyers
2013 – 65th Emmys – CBS – Neil Patrick Harris
2012 – 64th Emmys – ABC – Jimmy Kimmel
NPH’s Opening is still so funny, so him.
1. Kimmel- Had a lot of very fun bits and sketches, but never really made it about him. Reminded me of Letterman.
2. Samberg- Had a lot of energy and was trying his best throughout the whole show to make the audience engaged. Was appealing to the TV nerds online rather than the actual audience
3. Meyers- Kinda like Kimmel where he is very dry and not very showy, but had a lot of very good jokes and digs at the TV Academy
4. NPH- While he did have a lot of energy, the writing for the show was AWFUL. But he did a fine job with what he was given
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.
What sticks out in my mind the most is Seth Meyers’s opening monologue that had so many inside jokes for us.
Only one of the group I thought did an above-average job was Kimmel.
All of them were varying degrees of trash, but voted for Jimmy.
I say Seth Meyers. I confess to not having seen Kimmel, but the good news is I’ll be seeing him host this year.
All were unfunny and bad.
