Late Show host Stephen Colbert will emcee the 2017 Emmy Awards.
This is Colbert’s first time as host for a major awards show, though this is not his first time in the spotlight at one. He’s presented and received a multitude of awards — showing off his distinct comedic approach — in the past.
Colbert, who has won multiple Emmys in the past, is also a nominee in multiple categories this year.
Will the host also be a winner? Will comedic partner-in-crime Jon Stewart, who’s often joined Colbert for memorable show appearances, make a cameo appearance? What about a bit with late-night rival Jimmy Fallon, who once helped Colbert tackle Stewart to the ground and accepted an Emmy for The Colbert Report on Colbert’s behalf after presenter Gwen Stefani mangled the pronunciation of the show’s name?
Fans will have to wait and see. But as Colbert showed at the Tonys just this past June, the political comedian is likely to take aim at Donald Trump.
Peruse Colbert’s hilarious award show past, in reverse chronological order, as you prepare for the 69th annual Emmy Awards, airing live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sept. 17 on CBS.
