Cedric the Entertainer is making his Emmys hosting debut as the big show returns to a live, in-person format.
“Since I was a little boy huddled up next to my grandmother, television has always been my reliable friend, so it is an enormous honor for me to host this year’s Emmy Awards,” Cedric said in a statement.
The actor and comedian is best known for staring in the CBS comedy “The Neighborhood.”
“Throughout the roller-coaster of a year that we have all lived through, television has helped us stay connected as a society like never before. It not only entertained us, but as it always has, it helped to open our eyes, educate us, and hopefully brought about a better understanding of who we are as a people. I can’t wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year,” he added.
A “limited audience of nominees and their guests” will also be present at the ceremony tonight. The 72nd Emmy Awards, held in September 2020, were held virtually, with winners giving their speeches over video chat.
