Jimmy Kimmel to host 2012 Emmys

Jimmy Kimmel has been awarded the hosting duties for this year’s 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The comedian will take over from Glee’s Jane Lynch, who was in charge of last year’s ceremony.

The awards will take place on September 23rd in Los Angeles’s Nokia Theatre.

“I hope to be able to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars,” Kimmel said in a statement.
