What’s an Emmy? If you are not familiar with the award, it’s okay.
To explain, Emmy award, done annually, celebrates television shows showing excellence in the American television industry. Please be aware that it is focusing on current American television shows. Its counterparts include the Oscar Awards, for the film industry, Tony Awards, for theater, and finally Grammy Awards, for music.
Who’s the new host?
Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” will host this year’s Emmy Awards, of which is his first time. Jimmy Kimmel, the host of his self-titled show “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” hosted the award show last year. He was comedic as expected, but, unfortunately, he felt the burn last year for not getting an award. Also, his nemesis, Matt Damon, rubs it onto his face. Everybody’s getting curious if Stephen will host better than Jimmy even after all that.
Emmy’s drama category was given the biggest ballot this year. There were 180 submissions for the category. Also, the number of best actress for drama category came in second with 113 submissions.
