64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ShowStart drafting those Emmy-related Mean Tweets for Jimmy Kimmel, the late night host may need them to close out the summer of 2016. ABC just announced that Kimmel will be hosting the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be broadcast Sunday, September 18 from 8 to 11 p.m. EDT/PDT on ABC. The Emmy nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 14, so this is also a call to action to start pushing your favorite TV stars and shows for consideration.

Kimmel previously hosted the 64th Emmys in 2012. Andy Samberg hosted the Emmys last year, taking over from Seth Meyers in 2014, and Neil Patrick Harris in 2013. Before Kimmel's first time as host, Jane Lynch was host in 2011, with Jimmy Fallon as host in 2010, and NPH was host again in 2009. They did all of the reality hosts in 2008. It was Ryan Seacrest in 2007, and Conan O'Brien in 2006, and Ellen DeGeneres in 2005, with Garry Shandling getting the job in 2004. You can point out the similarities on your own.

"I am excited to be hosting the Emmys again," Kimmel said in a statement. "I have a feeling I'm going to be great." How Trump of him! He also revealed the news early Monday morning on Twitter:


Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement, "Jimmy Kimmel is the consummate showman. With Kimmel at the helm, expect to be at the edge of your seat for a bigger, bolder, and better-than-ever Emmy event."

In other news, the Academy announced that the Creative Arts Emmy Awards will take place over two nights, Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, at the Microsoft Theater.

Are you glad that Kimmel will be hosting again? Do you think he'll find a way to bring that long-running Matt Damon gag onto the Emmys show?
