Can we talk about the announcer at the Emmys for a minute??
While Stephen Colbert was busy killing it on screen at the TV award show, there was one voice off stage that repeatedly stole the spotlight. In case you missed it, typically when a winner is revealed at an award show, a dry voice over informs the audience facts about the recipient.
However, for this year’s Emmys, CBS tapped an announcer with a bit more panache. Specifically, comedian Jermaine Fowler brought the funny — and, boy, did people take notice. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the best reactions to Fowler’s work (below)!
The Emmys announcer making very clear who his favorites are is exactly how Emmys announcing should be

i like the announcer but i feel positive that someone who works for the emmys told him to “be blacker” at some point
