“Television has played an integral role in navigating these unprecedented times and has brought us together as we remain apart,” Frank Scherma, TV chairman and CEO, said Thursday. “We are honored to have these groundbreaking actors, producers and comedians announce this year’s Emmy nominees — whose extraordinary work has been vital to the evolution of the television landscape this season.”
Winners of this year’s Emmy Awards will be unveiled September 20 live on ABC in a ceremony hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel is executive producing the show with Reginald Hudlin.
Jones, an actor and comic, is host of ABC’s game show revival Supermarket Sweep, which cracked the network’s fall schedule and will air Sundays at 8 PM.
