The Emmys is having its Gypsy moment, with Cedric the Entertainer set to take over hosting duties for the 2021 show from perennial awards-show favorite Jimmy Kimmel. Deadline reports that the comedian will be hosting an in-person Emmys on September 19, which will feature a “limited audience” of nominees and their guests at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater. In a statement, which only uses the word “entertained” once, Cedric remarked that “throughout the roller-coaster of a year that we have all lived through, television has helped us stay connected as a society like never before.” The 2021 Emmy nominations will be announced tomorrow on July 13, which better include Ted Danson’s long-awaited King of Television Lifetime Achievement Award.
