Seth Meyers will also host this year's Emmys

NBC has announced that hosting enthusiast Seth Meyers will host the 2014 Emmy Awards, so named for your Grandma Emmy who still gets a big kick out of awards shows. It’s a logical step for Meyers, who graduated from hosting Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update to hosting Late Night—both, not coincidentally, on NBC, which gave the job to its then-Late Night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien the last three times it was home to the Emmys. (And the time before that, Late Night’s David Letterman co-hosted with Cheers’ Shelley Long—though Long left just as the ceremony was getting good.) Anyway, Meyers has also hosted the ESPYs, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and even Live With Kelly, and just generally enjoys hosting things. If you’re supposed to throw a dinner party you’re maybe kind of dreading, consider giving him a call.
