Jimmy Kimmel to Host Emmy Nominations 2012

The 2012 Primetime Emmys Nomination announcement will take place on Thursday, July 19 at 8:40 a.m. ET. Nick Offerman, of Parks and Recreation, and Kerry Washington, the lead on Scandal, will present the announcement. A live stream of the announcements will be available here. 

Last year, a priceless TV moment was captured during the nominee announcements when Mike and Molly star Melissa McCarthey, who was also hosting the announcements, found out she was nominated live on-air. History might repeat itself with Offerman, who is announcing the nominees but is also a potential nominee. 

The 2012 Emmy Awards will air live Sunday, September 23 on ABC. The ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
