“If there's any music, I promise not to be a part of it,” Meyers tells TheWrap about the NBC awards show
NBC “Late Night” host Seth Meyers has emceed the ESPYs, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and anchored “Weekend Update” for seven-and-a-half seasons on “Saturday Night Live.” But on Aug. 25, he takes on his biggest hosting challenge yet – fronting the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
TheWrap spoke to the former “SNL” head writer about the differences between the various shows and events he's hosted, the nominations and snubs of his famous pals and what TV shows have his imaginary vote this year.
While the stoic actor tells TheWrap he broke character just three times in Season 1, he's already nearly matched that total in just a handful of Season 2 eps
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” burst onto the scene in its freshman season, upsetting the more-established Golden Globe competition in 2013 and winning a Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical trophy. Star Andy Samberg also stole the award for lead actor in a comedy. Both were deserved victories.
But just when TV critics thought the Fox comedy might storm the Emmys, it wasn't even nominated and neither was Samberg. However, Andre Braugher was, making the short list for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
