Jimmy Fallon may host the Emmys
NBC is looking in-house to find a host for this fall's Emmy Awards.
According to Variety, NBC may announce as early as next week that Jimmy Fallon will host the Emmy telecast, which will be held in late August due to the network's NFL commitments.
The trade says that NBC considered other network-friendly talent including Jerry Seinfeld and a Tina Fey/Steve Carell pairing. The past two times NBC has aired the Emmys, Conan O'Brien hosted. It's unlikely that that was considered a viable possibility this time around.
Fallon has previously hosted MTV's Movie Awards and the VMAs. After mixed early notices, Fallon has riding a wave of positive press for his work on "Late Night," where his quirky selection of guests and filmed bits have struck a chord with younger viewers.
