Saturday Night Live star and six-time Emmy nominee Kenan Thompson was announced as the host just a month before the ceremony.

Thompson takes over the often thankless entrance from last year’s host Cedric the Entertainer, who headlined the 2021 in-person broadcast with a salute to TV and a tribute to late musician Biz Markie. Jimmy Kimmel Live star and three-time Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel hosted the ceremony in 2020 when the show was forced to go semi-virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I feel great,” Thompson recently told the Times. “There’s a great team there. I definitely don’t feel like I’m floating out there alone. I am very stunned. There are some great pieces coming together.”

The first-time Emmys presenter – who has won the 2021 People’s Choice Awards and TV special Jonas Brothers Family Roast – said his moderating style for the ceremony was “straightforward,” meaning he relies on “a good monologue and keeps the energy up.”

The HBO Max limited series The White Lotus garnered 20 nominations thanks to its powerful ensemble cast, including Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Natasha Rothwell and Sydney Sweeney. It was followed by Hulu’s “Dopesick” at 14, with many of the nods going to its actors – Michael Keaton, Kaitlyn Dever, Mare Winningham, Will Poulter, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Newcomers include Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building,” Apple TV+’s “Severance,” Netflix’s “Squid Game” (the first non-English language program to receive a major Emmy nomination), ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” and ” Showtime’s Yellowjackets are among the top nominees again this year.
