His ability to put the audience at ease and his manner of perfect delivery of the mostly extempore lines means that Seth is the most competent person for the job at hand.
"Seth is such a talented performer and writer, and we know he will bring something unique to hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards," said Bruce Rosenblum, Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy. "We are also excited to welcome Don back this year and very much look forward to their collaboration as we celebrate television's biggest night during one of the most transformative years in Television Academy history."
The funny man routines, with which he impresses those with a sense of humor, are to be lauded as well. Seth sure knows what he talking about and he has a way of saying the right thing at the right moment.
You won’t find an awkward muscle in his linguistic repertoire. His range of speak-worthy one liners make for a fine staccato of words. And since Seth has previous experience under his belt, he will be bringing along the backlog of resources along with him to the Emmys.
Neil Patrick Harris managed to carry through his act to completion in the capacity of host of the Emmys in the previous year. The Nokia Theater in Los Angeles will be the venue of the Emmys this time though.
In his middle age, Seth Meyers is an Emmy winner himself. Seth had recently taken over the helm of the Tonight Show from Jimmy Fallon who had moved on to greener pastures.
Seth has the dedication and capabilities necessary for hosting the 2014 Emmy Awards with skill and uncanny flow. He won’t be tripping over his lines. And the smooth operator that he is means that the Emmys will be a pretty exciting and exhilarating affair.
The standards a man holds himself up to for the sake of his target audience are a bunch of stuff that requires constant vigilance. Seth polishes and re-polishes his personality time after time and this time he will be really burnishing his character for the sake of the 66th Emmys.
"Seth's expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at 'SNL,' as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys," said Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment. "Plus, with Don's vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we'll be in great hands."
The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live on NBC, Monday, August 25th at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT, from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE In Los Angeles.
