Neil Patrick Harris: Confirmed as Emmy Awards host
CBS announced on Monday that two-time Emmy nominee Neil Patrick Harris will host the 61st Emmy Awards on September 20, 2009.
"After having had such a hoot hosting the Tonys, I was thrilled to get the call about the Primetime Emmys", Harris said in a press release.
The popular stage and screen star also said, "I'm looking forward to the challenge of the show — adding my own voice to it, while honouring the nominees and the entire year in television. But which voice to choose? I'm torn between gangsta, foppish Brit, and robot. Really proud of my robot. We'll see what happens on the night".
Harris has also hosted the TV Land Awards and the Writers Guild Awards this year. He has gained a number of credits as a presenter in recent years. This has been a busy year for Neil Patrick Harris.
Nominees for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday.
