Summer is coming to an end, and we all know what that means...it's award show season! In case you weren't nearly as excited as I was to watch the VMA's on MTV this past week, just around the corner are the Emmys! Now, if I'm being perfectly honest, I'm usually not overflowing with joy when I see commercials for this lovely televised event, but all changed this morning when I discovered my all-time favorite actor was going to be the host. And just in case you're unfamiliar about Andy Samberg and his legacy so far, let me remind you why you should be super excited.
Does anyone remember Samberg's numerous skits on SNL? Lonely Island? Shy Ronnie? If that doesn't convince you to watch him host an award show I don't know what would. His brand of humor is one of a kind and I'm sure this year will triumph all others.
Just think of all the great work he's one with other celebrities. From working with Lady Gaga, to intriguing one-on-one talks with Drake, Samberg never falls short of entertaining.
Let's not neglect how musically inclined he is. I wouldn't be surprised if he whipped out something new just for the show, and in case you've never heard him, check out Lonely Island.
Samberg is equally charming as he is funny, but watch out ladies, he's taken. Between the amount of talk shows he's appeared on, to the countless skits he's performed, I can guarantee you won't be able to contain that smile when the Emmys come around.
The Emmys air Sept. 20 on FOX, don't forget to watch, I'll promise you'll become a fan too.
