Former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg has been tapped as the host of the upcoming 2015 Emmy Awards. The actor will host the television-focused ceremony on September 20 in Los Angeles, his first time emceeing a major awards night.
Samberg is no newcomer to the awards circuit, though. He has performed at the Oscars and won a Golden Globe award for Best Actor, for his current work on the series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
“Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!” said Samberg in a statement. “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.”
Samberg was on Saturday Night Live for seven seasons, and is still currently starring on the series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
