This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
A host can make or break an award show.
The Emmys are still quite a few months away, but they just locked down a stellar host for next September's ceremony!
Not only is this funnyman a late night host, but he used to be partners in crime with Ben Stein, he had a special place in his heart for girls on trampolines, and he can't stand Matt Damon!
That's right, Jimmy Kimmel!
J.K. even took to Twitter to say:
This will be Kimmel's second time hosting as he also took on the responsibilities back in 2012.
Are you happy with Jimmy hosting the awards show this year?!
