Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet - Show
Ladies and gentlemen, the host of the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be... Mr. Andy Samberg!

The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star and "Saturday Night Live" alum will be master of ceremonies when TV's biggest night airs on Sunday, September 20th on Fox.

Fox Television Group chairman and CEOs, Gary Newman and Dana Walden said of the choice: "The moment the Emmy Awards' host was brought up, we said it had to be Andy. He is fearless, hilarious, an award-winning comedian, singer, writer and actor with incredible live TV experience. We know he'll deliver the laughs and give viewers an incredible night they will enjoy."

Samberg weighed in in a statement, saying: "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers! Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I'm hosting, and it's gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts."

You heard him, folks. Here's hoping he teams up with The Lonely Island for this. Can "Shy Ronnie" please try to sing TV theme songs or something?

The nominations for 67th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced July 16th.
