Emmy host Cedric the Entertainer wants the awards show to honor how “television got us through this past year”



The pandemic may be forcing people to cut back on celebrations this year, but Cedric the Entertainer says he’s still excited to host the Emmy Awards on Sunday. Unlike last year, the live ceremony will be held in person with a limited number of nominees in attendance.

“TV got us through this last year,” Cedric told CBSN on Thursday, adding, “Everyone started watching everything excessively. And that was something we trusted, and so I think that’s what we should be honoring tonight. So I want to have fun with the people who are there, to be celebrated, honored, everyone who is nominated – we’re just going to make it a party, and I want to that people back home feel the same about it. “

The star and executive producer of CBS sitcom “The Neighborhood” hosts the awards ceremony for the first time. He teased some of the surprises he has in store.

“I have some really fun skits that we created,” Cedric said. While the pandemic restrictions did not allow him to make it to the set of ‘Bridgerton’ ‘with my tights on,’ he said, ‘We ended up having a lot of fun little pops that you will see. where I have been able to interfere in some of the greatest moments that have happened on television this year. ”
