The Daytime Emmys have a host! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences announced today that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Emmy Award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin.
“I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I’m told is the most important television event of the year,” Griffin says. “Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show. I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man’s first step on the moon. My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year’s World Cup. I apologize to FIFA.”
The 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 22 at 5:00 p.m. PST, and the ceremony will be broadcast live over the Internet at www.daytimeemmys.net.
