Anthony Anderson, stand-up comedian and star of the hit sitcom, black-ish, has been tapped to host the long delayed Primetime Emmy Awards airing Monday, January 15th at 8 PM ET on FOX.


This year's ceremony was originally scheduled to take place on September 18th (those plans clearly did not take place given both union strikes that clashed with the annual telecast).


Since the writer's & actor's strikes took place over the course of this year, the entertainment industry became completely disrupted with productions on upcoming movies & shows being put on pause until both respected unions came to an agreement. Writers were the first to go on strike in early May for their WGA union, then the actors joined them in the middle of the summer for the SAG-AFTRA. Both group's unions are now finally on the other side of these strikes with fully ratified agreements in place.


And now, writers & actors can go promote their work at the industry's leading award shows.

“With our industry’s recent challenges behind us, we can get back to what we love -- dressing up and honoring ourselves. And there’s no better celebratory moment to bring the creative community together than the milestone 75th Emmy Awards,” said Anthony Anderson. “When FOX asked me to host this historic telecast, I was over the moon that Taylor Swift was unavailable, and now I can’t wait to be part of the biggest night in television.”
