The 2015 Emmys have a host, and his name is… Andy Samberg!
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star has gone from winning awards to emceeing awards shows!

Seeing as this is his first time hosting, we thought we'd explain why he's going to be a GREAT Emmys host! With GIFs!
First off, he's been there before. Andy has won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe, so he knows what it's like to be in the shoes of a nominee!
Speaking of which, the man looks good in a tux. You have to pull that off!
He doesnt take himself seriously. At last year's ceremony, Andy had maybe the most fun, irreverent moment when he interrupted Lena Headey while dressed as Joffrey from Game of Thrones!
He also gave the Oscars some silly love with his all-star performance of the nominated song Everything Is Awesome!
Speaking of all-stars, he's performed songs with everyone from Justin Timberlake to Michael Bolton. Something tells us he'll get some big names to rock the Emmys stage.
Of course, Andy's other secret weapon is Saturday Night Live — the experience doing the live show week after week is what prepared other recent hosts Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon, and Dennis Miller.
Finally, of course, there's The Lonely Island.
The trio of Andy, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer are inseparable and invincible. When it comes to comedy songs, we mean. Obvi.
That's why WE think Andy will be great. But is Andy himself ready?
He said in a statement:
"Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers! Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I'm hosting, and it's gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts."
Oh yeah. He's ready.
