Primetime Emmy Awards: Every host from the 21st Century, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert

  • Gold Derby
Hosts for the annual Emmy Awards ceremonies throughout the 21st Century have almost always been comedians. For the most part, they bring just the right tone of roasting the nominees and celebrating the previous TV season. With a four-way rotation of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, the host selection also typically comes from that network’s stable of talent.

For the 2018 event, “Saturday Night Live” stars and “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 70th annual ceremony for NBC. It marks the first time a duo has presided over the ceremony since Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce in 1999. That was last century! How will Jost and Che stack up against this century’s emcees? Let’s take a tour of the past 18 years in our photo gallery above of all the hosts, good and bad.

You won't be sorry. Anyway, today we've got the first trailer for Season 2 for you to watch and it looks wonderful.

“I Had a 40-Year Career That Was Mostly Just Riven with Existential Panic”: Two and a Half Men Co-Creator Lee Aronsohn on his Debut Doc, 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie

Lee Aronsohn was a college student in the early 1970s when he discovered Magic Music, an acoustic band based in Boulder, Colorado that attracted a devoted following thanks to their beautiful harmonies, memorable lyrics and bohemian lifestyle. In spite of flirtations with a number of record labels, the group never took off — they never even released an album — and by 1975 they broke up. Forty years later, Aronsohn — now one of the most successful writer-producers in the history of sitcoms thanks to his work on Murphy Brown, The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, […]

Megan Mullally is more likely to win Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy than Laurie Metcalf, readers predict

Megan Mullally is more likely to win Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy than Laurie Metcalf, readers predict
If the Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy race came down to two former champs in revivals, Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) has a better shot of winning than Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne”), our readers believe.

Mullally received 68 percent of the vote to 32 percent for Metcalf, which might be a bit surprising considering Metcalf’s banner year with an Oscar nomination and a Tony win. But Mullally, a two-time winner for “Will & Grace,” now has the second most nominations in the category at eight. She was the only main cast member to earn a nomination for the revival, which grabbed just five nominations.

Under the old tape system, Mullally might be a lock with her submission, “Rosario’s Quinceanera, in which her longtime maid Rosario (Shelley Morrison) dies. Mullally gets to be funny, sympathetic, and delivers a moving speech to Rosario’s casket.

Donald Glover would be first black performer to win multiple Best Comedy Actor Emmys

Donald Glover would be first black performer to win multiple Best Comedy Actor Emmys
Donald Glover is way out in front to defend his Best Comedy Actor Emmy for “Atlanta.” Should he go back-to-back, Glover would become the first black performer to win the category more than once.

Glover is only the second black Best Comedy Actor winner, following in Robert Guillaume‘s footsteps. Guillaume twice won for playing Benson DuBois on “Soap” (1979), in supporting, and “Benson” (1985), in lead, and was also the first black Best Comedy Supporting Actor champ. The late star prevailed in lead on his fifth and final nomination for “Benson,” so he never had a chance to defend his crown. And then it was 32 years before Glover triumphed, with nine unsuccessful bids in between, not counting Anthony Anderson’s nomination last year for “Black-ish.”

Charlie Sheen ‘Can Relate’ to Roseanne Barr’s ‘Tone of Absolute Despair’
Charlie Sheen “can relate” to Roseanne Barr’s “tone of absolute despair” in the weeks since her show was canceled by ABC, the once-disgraced actor said Monday.

Sheen, who was fired from the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” after his erratic behavior and feud with creator Chuck Lorre came to a head in 2011, said in an Australian radio interview on Monday that he can empathize with Barr’s current situation.

“I can relate to that tone of absolute despair, because it’s not just about herself, it’s about the people that she knows she affected as well,” Sheen said. “What I hear in her voice, trying not to focus on the words but the emotion, is I hear the frustration, pain, there’s such a sadness there.”

Chuck Lorre Avoids Les Moonves Question But Stresses ‘You Can’t Do Good Work in an Unsafe Environment’

With three well-rated comedies still airing on CBS, Chuck Lorre has had a successful working relationship with Les Moonves for decades. During Sunday afternoon’s TCA panel for Lorre’s new Netflix show, “The Kominksy Method,” the creator of “The Big Bang Theory,” “Young Sheldon,” and “Mom” — not to mention “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike and Molly,” and “Cybill” — responded to allegations that the CBS chairman of the board, president, and CEO sexually harassed six women and has committed more sexual misconduct over the course of his career at CBS.

Though reluctant to answer at first given the “venue,” Lorre responded under a broader context. “I do think it’s important to have a safe work environment. And I’ve been in some unsafe environments. You can read about them,” he said.

Lorre is likely alluding to his experience working with Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men

Chuck Lorre on Sexual Harassment After Les Moonves Accusations: ‘It Has to Be Made Safe for Everyone’

Chuck Lorre on Sexual Harassment After Les Moonves Accusations: ‘It Has to Be Made Safe for Everyone’
Chuck Lorre is calling for a work environment that’s “safe for everyone” in the aftermath of a bombshell report alleging a toxic, male-dominated culture at CBS.

“You can’t do good work in an unsafe environment. It has to be made safe for everyone,” Lorre told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday. “Why would anyone want to go to work in an environment that’s not nurturing? You certainly can’t do comedy if you’re frightened. You certainly can’t do good work if you’re environment doesn’t support you.”

Lorre’s sitcoms, including “Two and a Half Men,” “Mom” and “The Big Bang Theory,” have been instrumental in CBS’s recent success, but the prolific creator was unwilling to address the allegations against CBS boss Leslie Moonves more specifically.

Emmy favorite Jane Lynch added a pair of nominations to her resume this year: one for Best Comedy Guest Actress for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and another for Best Reality Host for “Hollywood Game Night.” Her nom for “Maisel” marks the first time she has competed in the guest category since her bid for “Two and a Half Men” in 2010. That same year she won her first ever prize as Best Comedy Supporting Actress for “Glee.” Then she picked up additional wins for hosting “Hollywood Game Night” in 2014 and 2015, and one more trophy in 2017 as Best Short Form Actress for “Dropping the Soap.”

Tiffany Haddish is out in front in our Best Comedy Guest Actress odds for her hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live,” but she needs to watch her back — not for fellow “SNL” host Tina Fey, but Jane Lynch.

An 11-time nominee and a four-time winner, Lynch is an Emmy favorite. She received two nominations this year: Comedy Guest Actress for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and Reality Host for “Hollywood Game Night.” She won her first Emmy in 2010 for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for “Glee” and twice won as “Game Night” host, in 2014 and 2015, becoming one of three people to win the category more than once.

Then she lost the Host award to RuPaul Charles (“RuPaul’s Drag Race“) in 2016 and sat out 2017 due to “Hollywood Game Night’s” ineligibility, but the Emmys still found a way to give Lynch a statuette last year, awarding her Best Short Form Comedy or
