Emmy Awards Grab Anthony Anderson to Host Much Delayed Awards Show on Fox Next Month


The Emmy Awards are coming to Fox on January 15th.

The host? Anthony Anderson has come on board. The star of “Blackish” and “Law & Order” should make for a fun show.

The Emmys were supposed to be on back in September, but got delayed because of the strikes. This means we’ll have two Emmy Awards shows this year. The next one will be in September 2024.

“With our industry’s recent challenges behind us, we can get back to what we love — dressing up and honoring ourselves,” Anderson said in a statement. “And there’s no better celebratory moment to bring the creative community together than the milestone 75th Emmy Awards. When Fox asked me to host this historic telecast, I was over the moon that Taylor Swift was unavailable, and now I can’t wait to be part of the biggest night in television.”
