Please read this in Darrell Hammond‘s voice: Live from Los Angeles, it’s the 2018 Emmys with your hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost!
E! News has your exclusive first look at the first promo for the 2018 Emmys with hosts and Saturday Night Live stars Che and Jost. “This year we decide who wins,” Che said.
“No, it’s still the voters,” Jost corrects him.
“Yeah, we know how that works out,” Che says. “Uh oh! Political!”
Watch the full preview above. Stay for Jost’s message to Che.
While there is a political joke in the promo, things might not get too political. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Jost said, “It is kind of fun for us to do something that is not political.
“The exciting part is to do things about television and that particular awards ceremony and make it, in general, less political than normal,” he said. “There’s a lot to celebrate in television right now. It’s a very strong time.”
Saturday Night Live was nominated for numerous Emmys in 2018. Che and Jost are up for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series and several performers, including Aidy Bryant, Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon are up for awards. Alec Baldwin, who won the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy for his work on the series in 2017, is once again nominated.
The 2018 Emmys air Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
