NBC has not yet announced which of the peacock network stars will host the 2018 Emmy Awards. Let’s help out the 70th annual ceremony producers and tell them who should be the emcee for the primetime event slated for Monday, September 17. Vote in our new poll below where we offer the eight most likely contenders.
With an annual rotation among the four broadcast networks, it’s become a standard tradition for each year’s network to choose one of its own as host. Seth Meyers hosted in 2014 and Jimmy Fallon in 2010 when NBC last televised the program. The other most recent hosts were Stephen Colbert for CBS (2017), Jimmy Kimmel for ABC (2016), and Andy Samberg for Fox (2015).
Take a look at the following possibilities and vote for your favorite choice as 2018 Emmy Awards host:
Kristen Bell stars on “The Good Place” and hosted the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Ellen DeGeneres hosts “Ellen’s Game of Games” and has been the Emmy emcee in 1994, 2001 and 2005. She also hosted the Oscars in 2007 and 2015.
Jimmy Fallon hosts “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and previously was emcee on the Emmys in 2010 and Golden Globes in 2017.
Jane Lynch hosts “Hollywood Game Night” and was Emmy emcee in 2011.
Eric McCormack and Debra Messing headline the return of “Will and Grace” and are both previous Emmy winners for that comedy series.
Seth Meyers hosts “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and was previously emcee on the Emmys in 2014 and Golden Globes this year.
“Saturday Night Live” ladies Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong have become key members of the current variety show’s cast. McKinnon is a two-time Emmy winner, while Jones was nominated this past year.
Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are the only coaches on “The Voice” all 14 seasons so far. That program is winner of Best Reality-Competition Program four of the past five years and one of NBC’s biggest hit shows.
