“I don’t know where we will do this or how we will do this or even why we are doing this, but we are doing it and I am hosting it.”
Jimmy Kimmel is set as the host of the 2020 Primetime Emmys for ABC. However, the location and deliverance of the show is still unknown. The show was originally going to be telecast from the Microsoft Theater in L.A. on September 20th. At this point in time, the date remains the same.
“We know Jimmy Kimmel will deliver a uniquely entertaining, funny and moving Primetime Emmys show,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke noted. “He’s a true master of ceremonies who reveres this industry and its people; and just as Jimmy has done with his own show over the past few months, he will tackle this momentous event with heart and humor, and bring some much-needed joy and optimism to our television colleagues and viewers at home.”
